Ranieri: Juventus victory won't end AC Milan's top four hopes

Juventus coach Claudio Ranieri doesn't believe victory over AC Milan would end the Rossoneri's Champions League hopes.

"I don't know whether a win would knock Milan out of the race for Champions League qualification, it depends on other teams," Ranieri stated.

"But we would move into an even greater advantage in our bid to reach Europe. We are focused on our campaign and we have to know how to defend our position.

"Milan have picked up a lot of points away from home. They are champions and they will battle as they did against Cagliari. But we are also playing well. It's a big game.

"We want to finish at the top and we will give everything in every game. I don't think that we will be hindered by tension, motivation or nerves."

Ranieri also admitted he's been disappointed with Juve's campaign this season.

"I thought I could do more because at the start you always have the greatest ambitions," he revealed. "We had to lose some games before we could recognise that there are stronger sides than us. I am satisfied, but I am not settling for this."
