Serie A By: Ambrose Udeme | 09/12/2017

Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti has made it clear that only a against Juventus on Saturday would do for his side's hopes of a first Serie A title in eight years.

Spalletti and his troops face Juve in the Derby d’Italia on Saturday, with the Nerazzurri two points clear of the Scudetto holders going into the Turin tussle.

The former Roma who claims “I’d take Max Allegri” from Juventus, as opposed to any of their players in a pre-match interview said: “Now we have a precise identity and we know that we can compete at these levels,” the Coach said at a Press conference.

“In order to achieve our objectives, we’ll need plenty of points and every game must be an opportunity to pick up more. That’s why we’re going to Turin to win.

“We’re not playing against a team third in the table but one that have reached the Champions League Final twice in recent years. We’ll need to show character right from the first ball, also because Allegri’s one of the best in changing the face of his team during a match.

“We must be good at always answering them with the right move and play with the right attitude. Ultimately, however, this is the Derby d’Italia, with all the responsibilities that it entails, but we mustn’t get too fired up." Spalletti is quoted as saying in Football-Italia.
