Juventus target 92 points

Juventus have one more objective left this season – to beat the 91 points won by Fabio Capello’s Old Lady side.

That record total was collected by the latter in the 2005-06 campaign, although the club were later stripped of that Scudetto and demoted to Serie B for their part in Calciopoli.

“We’re going to try our very best to beat Capello’s record,” assistant boss Angelo Alessio stated after the 1-0 win over Atalanta.

“We managed to win a very difficult match in Bergamo. Credit to the lads who always train really hard and ensure they’re in shape for the game.

“Over the last two years, this group of players has been amazing and really embraced the club’s hard-working culture.

“Coming here and winning against an Atalanta side fighting for survival was no easy task.”

Juventus, currently on 86 points, need wins in their last two games – at home to Cagliari and away to Sampdoria – to set a new club first.

The Bianconeri have won their last nine games in the top flight.
