Alessandro Del Piero believes that Juventus are close to securing the Serie A title after drawing 0-0 with Milan.
Juve are now 10 points clear at the top with only nine games remaining, and Del Piero is confident that they can finish the job.
"We took an important step towards the title, but it is not complete yet. We must push until the end," said the captain.
"The draw allowed us to keep a 10 point advantage over Milan, despite a bad pitch which didn't help either side."
General manager Luciano Moggi was also aware of the result's importance, but urged the team to keep their focus in the remaining games of the season.
"The League isn't mathematically won," he explained. "Nine matches are missing so 27 points are still up for grabs.
"The lead of 10 points is important, so to lose the title from here would be a failure."
