The 3-0 hammering of Lecce confirmed their splendid form and caught Juventus and Milan in the standings awaiting tonight's showdown. Marek Hamsik, Michele Pazienza and German Denis were the Azzurri scorers.
"We cancelled out a bit of a poor November showing. This was proof of our maturity. We immediately got the game under wraps and then did very well on the counter," explained the Coach.
"We do need to improve in our passing and movement, as if we get that sorted then we will truly become a very interesting side. I hope to maintain this excellent trend.
"Scudetto ambitions? No, the title is nothing to do with us."
