Juventus will face seventh-placed Fiorentina on Saturday, and Massimiliano Allegri urged his men need to find the right mentality because they have to win all the games to reach the top.
Juventus are currently ninth in the table, having won just four of 11 games.
"The league matches for us now are all must-win, until we find the mental continuity," Allegri said. "We have to be realistic and practical. Our matches in the league have always been open, and this is not good."
Allegri spoke about the high quality of the rival, especially
, who has scored 8 goals in Serie A so far. But the 54-year-old tactician believes that his defenders can restrain him.
"Fiorentina have three points more than us
They have technical players, they make the most of the whole pitch and have a very good coach.
"Vlahovic is a good player and the numbers show it, but we have excellent defenders. We need to play the right game, both technically and defensively."
Juventus ended their three-game winless streak in Tuesday's game against
. The match ended 4-2.
"We have to keep our feet on the ground. After the win against Zenit, we have to concede fewer goals and we need to put the last two defeats in Serie A behind us. Let's keep quiet, keep pushing and keep working.
"The match against Zenit is not a turning point, it must be normality, which fortunately we have had in the Champions League but not in the league. It is a mental growth that we have to do. You win a game, you put it aside and think of another."
Allegri wants his team to be more greedy to reach the top of the table.
"The only game in which we took the wrong approach was Verona. Our real problem is [that we] pull back when we take the lead, because that's where we become vulnerable.
"I like these challenges that we are facing now, there are many things to improve upon. Each defeat has its own story and it must be analysed well. The performances haven't been bad, but if you concede a lot of goals, something is missing."
