ROME - Juventus boss Antonio Conte has warned his side not to take AC Milan lightly when the pair face off at the San Siro on Sunday.

The Turin club are four points clear at the top of the Serie A table and travel to the San Siro to take on a Milan side struggling in 12th place.

“Sunday we will play an important game against a team that are currently not around the top of the standings, but have great quality,” Conte told the club’s official website. “We are first in the standings, but remember that we have not done anything.”

Midfield playmaker Andrea Pirlo is equally wary and determined that his side emerge victorious. “It’s a special game as far as I’m concerned,” he said.

“We know we’ve done well up until now and that Milan have had a few difficulties, but we just want to remain focused on ourselves.”

Juventus should have Giorgio Chiellini fit for the clash after the defender complained of a leg injury following their 3-0 win over Chelsea. “It’s only a hardening of the calf should not be anything serious,” he said. “Two or three days of rest and I should recover for Sunday.

Allegri intrigued

Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri saw his side qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League last night after they won in Belgium against Anderlecht, but in the league they have not been as successful, already registering six defeats.

“Sunday will be a fascinating game even if we’re so far from Juventus,” said the boss. “They’re the strongest team and that’s where we want to be.”
