Juve are currently on a 49-game unbeaten streak in the league but Stramaccioni is not intimidated in the least by the prospect of facing the defending Serie A champions at the Juventus Stadium.

The 36-year-old claimed that settling for a draw was never on his mind but also played down the consequence of the result in the title race this early in the season.

"I won't settle for a draw. In the few games I've been coach, I've never thought about going out on the pitch to do anything but win," he told reporters at a press conference.

"I believe tomorrow's result will have more of an impact in the media than anywhere else. You might get a good result only to then spoil it later on, or get a bad result, which will not decide your season."

Stamaccioni went on to say that his side will have to play close attention to Andrea Pirlo if they are to succeed on Saturday.

"He's the playmaker both for Juventus and the national team; I think it makes sense to pay greater care to him to make it more difficult for him to set the tempo."
