Juventus coach Max Allegri has urged the club and fans to ease expectations.
Juve have kicked off in promising form and meet Sassuolo this weekend.
Allegri said, “At this moment we need to raise our focus because there's too much euphoria around. We're only in the fifth game of the season tomorrow, with Sassuolo in recent years they have always been complicated matches.
“Tomorrow we will find a tough environment and team, with great revenge. We have to play a game with great technique."
Asked about the advantage of Juve being without European football, Allegri insisted: “I don't know what the advantage or disadvantage will be. It depends on your point of view. You have to think that Juve will have to play in the Champions League next year. It will be added value for the team.
“We will have to commit. We have to get into the top four, it won't be easy. Inter, Milan and Napoli are above us. A step at a time, with balance, without mood swings.
“The direction will be right if we reach the goal. Otherwise, if we don't get into the top four, we won't have done a good job as an objective. Since we are a team with less experience, we have to work… it's another matter.
“There will be less beautiful matches where we still have to achieve the same result. There will be more balanced matches."
