Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci has said that his club will be right behind AC Milan in the race for the Italian Serie A title. Leonardo Bonucci has also said that Juventus will be able to take advantage of any slipup from AC Milan in the title race. The business end of the season has been approaching in Italy for quite some time now. Juventus have managed to stay in touch with AC Milan at the top of the table, although they have lost a few points recently.
AC Milan have been quite spectacular this season and have been the strongest team in the division. However, Leonardo Bonucci reckons that Juventus will be able to take advantage of any slipups that AC Milan might have over the next few matches due to the intense pressure.
Juventus and AC Milan recently played out a 2-2 draw at Turin. It was a draw that helped Juventus see off the threat from AC Milan for the Coppa Italia final. After the draw, Bonucci said that Juventus are more than a match for AC Milan in the league. Further, given that AC Milan have commitments in the Champions League – where they will be facing Barcelona in the quarter-finals – Juventus are the best placed team for winning the league title this season, ahead of Simon Kjaer‘s Roma.
“I am very happy to qualify for the [cup] final. In the four games that we have played against Milan, we have shown that we can keep up with them head-to-head. After all, we beat them twice and drew twice. This must give us strength and belief in our abilities. If Milan make a mistake, we are right there,” the 24-year-old defender wrote on his blog on the official website of Juventus. The club are currently four points behind AC Milan in the table.
