Victory over Inter Milan on Sunday has blown the title battle wide open.
â€œWe never stopped believing," said Pioli. â€œIt was a more balanced game than people seem to make out, and the statistics confirm that. We did well to stay in the match.
â€œAll the top five teams are in the battle for everything, including the title as well as a Champions League spot. As far as I am concerned, Inter and Juve are the strongest squads in Serie A.
â€œWhat Milan must do now is prove we are a mature team. The victory in the derby has to give us enthusiasm.
â€œConsistency is the key to staying at the top and we have always tried to play positive, attacking football."
