Former Juventus coach Marcello Lippi believes the Bianconeri could sew up a third straight Serie A title if they beat Roma, but fears a win for Antonio Conte's side will make the division boring.
The Guangzhou Evergrande boss commended unbeaten Roma for its efforts so far this season, which sees the Giallorossi five points adrift of Juve, but insists it cannot afford a slip-up Sunday if it wishes to stay in the title race.
“Roma are playing an unbelievable championship but cannot lose in Turin if they are to keep the excitement alive," Lippi told RaiSport. “If Juve win on Sunday, the league would become boring.”
The reigning Serie A champions have dropped just five points so far and victory over their nearest rivals would put them eight points clear at the top of the division.
Meanwhile, Lippi also took time offer his sympathy toward current Italy boss Cesare Prandelli, as a result of national side's relationship with the Italian press ahead of World Cup 2014.
“I've been there myself, just before the World Cup in Germany. In Italy there is only desire for sensationalism, especially when there are big characters within the squad.”
