Juventus coach Ranieri insists Scudetto battle not over

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri refuses to give up on their bid to overhaul Serie A leaders Inter Milan.

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri refuses to give up on their bid to overhaul Serie A leaders Inter Milan.

“We can't just hope that the very strong team in front of us throw away the title,” Ranieri explained in La Repubblica. “The Scudetto is certainly Inter's to lose now, but we have to be ready to take advantage if they slip up.

“Juve-Inter could be a decisive match, I hope so. It will be more interesting for everyone if the gap between us is smaller.

“If things stay like this then it will just be an important match between the leaders and the runners-up.

“Hopefully we can get Mauro Camoranesi, Claudio Marchisio and Nicola Legrottaglie back from injury after the international break - that would be very important.

“Injury problems have affected every team in Italy and all over the world, it's not just a Juventus problem.”
