He said: "The enthusiasm created by the victory over Inter has already dissipated. That kind of euphoria is positive only if you keep it under control. When you win or lose, you must wipe it all off the slate and start afresh.

"We must give our best and continue to improve. We're focused and want to take it one game at a time, knowing none of them will be easy."

Considering Inter's stuttering form and Roma's injury worries, some have even suggested Juve could target the Scudetto.

"Our desire remains to finish as high as possible, but let's not forget we are not even mathematically in the Champions League yet," he warned. "Our only priority right now is to pick up three points on Sunday against Palermo."
