First-team coach Massimo Carrera has said there is a long way to go before Juventus, quoted 4/9 by bet365 in the outright betting, can consider themselves worthy Serie A title favourites.
The Turin giants make the trip to Florence on Tuesday to take on rivals Fiorentina attempting to make it five wins from their opening five fixtures of the new Italian domestic season (Fiorentina 11/4, draw 9/4, Juventus 21/20 – 90 minutes).
Victory against Vincenzo Montella’s Viola would see the Old Lady extend their lead over nearest rivals Napoli by five points, but Carrera is refusing to get carried away by his side’s electric start to the new campaign.
The 48-year-old warned there will be many twists and turns before the Scudetto is decided and said his and the players’ sole focus was the next game.
Speaking at a press conference in Vinovo, Carrera said: “We’ve only played four championship fixtures. Yes, the other teams have started badly, but they also have time to improve and will do so accordingly.”
He added: “There’s also plenty to develop from our point of view and we’ll try to work on this as much as possible.”
With no new injury or suspension worries, Antonio Conte is expected to name an unchanged Bianconeri squad for the Stadio Artemio Franchi clash.
