Pressure on Juve, says Stankovic

Dejan Stankovic insists Juventus will be feeling the pressure when his Inter side travel to Turin on Sunday evening.

“They have more to lose than us,” the midfielder told the Gazzetta dello Sport. “They are playing for the title and we know what kind of pressure that leads to.

“They are forced to win – and that will be even more the case should Milan, who play a day earlier, collect three more points.”

While Juve are four points adrift of Milan in second, Inter are seventh – seven points behind the last remaining Champions League spot.

“The League table is clear and it’s not nice to lie,” continued the former Lazio player. “However, to finish third you have to win a few direct clashes and we have those against Udinese and Lazio.

“It is also never good to have an Inter side chasing you. Despite everything this season, I think we are still feared.”

The 33-year-old is known for his contribution in front of goal, but the veteran has yet to ripple a net this term.

“I still have 10 games at my disposal,” he noted. “Perhaps Sunday will be the right day. I’ve never ended a season without scoring a goal. Never.

“I don’t think it is possible for me to not score in a campaign and I don’t even want to think about it.”
