AC Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri insists their clash with Juventus is no title decider.

Although Allegri insists the result of the tie won't be pivotal in the title race, he knows that three points could go a long way.

"I don't think the match will be decisive," he said on Friday afternoon. "However, it is clear that a win for either side would change the balance of the championship.

"I'd like to play badly and win. I'd sign for that today if that was offered to me. We are playing well right now though and we'll need to put in a great display.

"We'll have to try to win, even without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, because it is an important game at the top of the table. Who wins will see their chances of the Scudetto increase."
