Bastoni said thatInter
are determined to stop Juventus’ run in Serie A.
“Juve have been winning for many years, our journey began last year with the arrival of the coach,”
“We will try to put them in difficulty, we want to grow.
“They have been winning for some time, we are following a path. We are playing a lot and we don’t look at the table, we will try to stop them.”
But the 21-year-old defender admits that the Bianconeri are still among the serious contenders for the league title in the 2020-21 season.

Inter are four points above Juventus ahead of the Derby d’Italia and Bastoni said there is still a long way till the end of the season.
“It’s a strange championship because of the many commitments,” he said. “Ours is a continuous path, we take one game at a time and try to win them all."
