Udinese coach Francesco Guidolin has cooled talk of winning the Scudetto this season.

The Friulani are unbeaten in 2011 and completed an amazing comeback to fly into fourth place.

"The Scudetto is a three-horse race. We are too far behind, so we do not feel involved,” insisted Guidolin ahead of Udinese’s trip to Lecce.

“Considering the campaign we are having, the team deserves a ticket to Europe. The Champions League would be a triumph.

“I am worried about how starved of points Lecce must be. Their position in the table does not reflect the quality of their football. It is a good side and Gigi De Canio has formed a squad that fears nobody.”
