Del Piero: Juve must keep fighting

Juventus captain Alessandro Del Piero says his team must keep fighting if they are to finish the season on a high.

Sunday's stalemate with Fiorentina appears to have put paid to Juventus' chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

However, Del Piero claims Juventus must continue to look forward in the remaining five games of the season.

"It's useless to hide it: If we were concentrating only on the race for fourth place, the results on Sunday would be considered as having penalised our ambitions.

"But in reality you can't reduce it to all that because we have always said that we are looking at it on a game-by-game basis until the end of the season. Then we'll do our calculations.

"Anyway we have to go forward and end the season as well as possible without forgetting that we have won three of our last four games and drawn the other.

"That doesn't take away from the fact that we are not satisfied with the point that we got in Florence and that we wanted to win."
