Milan-Juventus the most anticipated game? Alessandro Del Piero, interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, answers: “For some years it has been. In the nineties in particular, but also a little further. But one can’t go on without mentioning those against Inter or Roma or many others. Of course, the appeal of playing at San Siro against the Rossoneri is hard to match.”

“Until the end”, “Winning is the only thing that matters”: when did you realize that it is not just a slogan?
“The essence of sport is to beat your opponent, giving everything to win, having the victory as an obsession. That’s the only way to respect and honor the sport. It is not a slogan, but what it means to be champions. At Juve this is very clear. When you win and when you don’t win.”

Is the Scudetto already decided in favor of the Bianconeri?
“Absolutely not. Anything can still happen, but it would certainly surprise me if Juve let the Scudetto slip away. Napoli is an extraordinary organisation, has played an exciting football and will react. I admired the work of Sarri, it would be a shame if they gave up because it would mean throwing away something great that they are building for the future. But they will not.”
