Juve lead the table by six points.
"The Serie A race is still very open. The fact we and hopefully also Milan are in the Champions League quarter-finals can further encourage those chasing us in Serie A. Many of them deep down believe in a comeback," said Conte.
"Now Milan are eight points behind us, though we still have to play this weekend and there is the head-to-head still to come.
"Last season when everyone said we had an advantage in not playing in Europe, I replied I'd have preferred to be tired if it meant being in the Champions League. It's true cup competitions take away precious energy, but they increase confidence, belief and awareness of our own capabilities."
