“Spezia are proving to be up for Serie A, having a great championship,”
“They have achieved great results against the big teams too. It will be a difficult match.
“It will be an important match for us, who must continue to fight for the Scudetto. We will have to play an intense game from the first minute.
Pirlo stressed Juventus are not looking at the other teams above them.
“We don’t look at who are above us, nor behind us, we concentrate on ourselves,”
“The goal must remain the same, there are many games and as long as there’s room to recover, we will be there.
“The initial goal was to win them all, we know we lost a few points, but that concerns the past. We have to look to the future and the future is called Spezia.”
Pirlo claimed his squad has the right mentality to fight for the title.
“I wouldn’t say we can chase the Scudetto if I didn’t know that the team thinks so too,” he continued. “I know the lads believe it, they train well and want to go back to winning the title and this makes me feel comfortable."
