The February meeting between Milan and Juventus could decide the destination of the Scudetto, says Diavolo ace Antonio Nocerino.
The former Bianconeri midfielder was again on the scoresheet last night as his side beat Cagliari 3-0 to move back to within a point of leaders Juve.
“The championship is still long,” the Italian international told Sky Sport Italia. “However, ourselves and Juve are going strong.
“Let’s hope we can continue on this road until our game against each other. I think that tie will be decisive for both teams in the Scudetto race if we keep up this pace.”
The Italian giants are breaking away at the top of the table after Juve beat third-placed Udinese this weekend, while Inter dropped from fourth to fifth following defeat at Lecce.
Juventus beat Milan 2-0 at the Juventus Stadium earlier this season.
