Fernando Llorente admits Juventus are closing on a third consecutive title. “Each time there are fewer games remaining.”
The Spaniard was on target in tonight’s 2-0 victory away to Udinese, which maintained the eight-point lead from Roma at the top of the Serie A table.
“It was a difficult match, but it was too important that we win,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“We are very, very happy, as each time there are fewer games remaining and the distance remains the same at the top.”
There are still 15 points up for grabs this season, including a head-to-head with Roma at the Stadio Olimpico, but they have an eight-point buffer.
“It has been a long season, so of course we’re tired, but we have time to recover for Saturday.”
This was Llorente’s 14th goal of the Serie A season.
“Whether it’s with my head or my foot, it’s still a goal! It makes no difference to me.”
