Juventus v Cagliari: Preview

Juventus may have wrapped up the Scudetto already, but they could still set a new league points' record in the final two games of the season.

They welcome Cagliari to the Juventus Stadium tomorrow knowing a win would take them to within two points of the previous record which they set in 2006 under Fabio Capello.

That would just be just an added bonus attached to winning their final two games of the season, according to coach Antonio Conte, who will not accept his side lowering their guard following last weekend's title celebrations.

``All we are interested in is continuity,'' he said. ``The way to get that is with the right mentality and by finishing the season in the best possible way.

``If we then get this record, then it would be a further satisfaction. Of course we are just two wins away from smashing an important record and this gives us even more motivation.

``But we always go out to win games and that is what we will do tomorrow.''

Conte rotated his side significantly for the trip to Atalanta in midweek, but an Alessandro Matri goal was still enough to earn them all three points in Bergamo.

The chances of the regular first-teamers returning tomorrow are high with goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and defender Andrea Barzagli back after missing out in midweek due to knocks.

``Buffon and Barzagli should be available, but (Kwadwo) Asamoah and (Nicklas) Bendtner aren't due to injuries,'' said Conte.

``(Simone) Pepe is also still out, but everybody else is available.''

Cagliari arrive in Turin with their sights still set on a top-10 finish with three points separating them from that position with two games still to be played.

``10th may have slipped further away, but we are still in the hunt,'' said their coach, Ivo Pulga, after a 1-0 defeat to Parma in midweek.
