Juventus coach Conte: Stressful title race not over

Juventus coach Antonio Conte insists the Scudetto is not over after victory over Catania.Emanuele Giaccherini struck the winner deep into stoppages for a 1-0 result in Turin, sending them nine points clear of second-placed Napoli.

"It was a game we wanted to win at all costs with great strength and heart," said Conte.

"Catania were well-organised and made it difficult for us, especially with Alejandro Gomez and Lucas Castro so dangerous on the counter-attack.

"Last season if we had finished third, then the club and fans would've been very happy. This year we started out as favourites and winning again is never easy. We cannot make calculations right now, so take it one game at a time.

"This week has been very tough in physical and psychological terms, so I gave my lads one free day tomorrow. If we do well to achieve our objective, then we can relax a little more."
