Pjanic expects ‘close fight’

Miralem Pjanic says he is expecting “a close fight between Juventus and Napoli until the final game” for the Serie A title.

Napoli lead Juve by a single point at the top of the table with only 13 games remaining, and Pjanic made it clear the Bianconeri would not let their dominance in Italy end lightly.

“It’ll be a close fight between us and Napoli until the final game,” the midfielder told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“We’re a step behind them for now, so we have to keep going for it game by game.

“After that, if we want to topple them, they’ll have to come and go for it here and we’ll have to answer this.

“We’re coming out of a complicated spell, with many away games, but we’re picking up good results and the important thing is that we’re all 100 percent ready.

“We all hope to recover as soon as possible, and with the whole team available, it’ll surely be easier to reach the end of the season still in all three competitions.”
