Pirlo: Juventus will fight Inter Milan until the end

Andrea Pirlo, the Juventus coach, hopes that he has more options on the bench so that he can make substitutions that would change the course of the match, after his substitutions on Tuesday evening contributed to the victory over Spezia by winning 3-0 in the Italian League.

Pirlo told Sky Sport Italia: “The slow start was more physical fatigue than psychological, which can happen when you have many matches with the same players, we tried to control the match and then when the new legs appeared, we were more intense and capable. To make the most of our opportunities. "

He added, "It was important to advance from the midfield and attack the spaces more, we aim to create individual positions on the wings and then put the ball in the penalty area, where we have players who can damage, sometimes the wingers and sometimes the back."

He continued: "We have a great team, unfortunately I couldn't make as many changes as I wanted recently. We can do more to rotate the team and renew things with targeted changes during the match."

Pirlo was asked if he could bridge the gap that separates Juventus and Inter now, and said: "The gap is only the points that separate us. We know it will be a long chase. Inter have worked on that for two years, and they have a well thought out approach, while we have just started this." Season We still intend to be there until the end. "

Juventus raised its score to 49 points in third place in the Italian league table, with a postponed match remaining for him with Napoli, 7 points behind Inter Milan, the leader with 56 points, while Spezia's balance stopped at 25 points in the fourteenth place.
