      The manager speaks exclusively to Juventus.com from the team’s California training camp: “When you cross the white line you mustn’t look at the name of the opposition”

      Antonio Conte says Juventus will have to face each and every one of this season’s Serie A opponents with “respect and thorough preparation” if they are to retain their Scudetto crown.

      This evening’s draw in Milan means the Bianconeri will be pitted against Lazio, Inter, Milan and Fiorentina within the first eight fixtures of the 2013/14 campaign, but Conte believes the order of the games comes secondary to the fundamental principles of focus and application.

      Speaking exclusively to Juventus.com in California, the 43-year-old said: “In a competition like Serie A, where every team is extremely tactically prepared, commenting on the fixture list has little meaning. When you cross the white line you mustn't look at the name of the opposition, because you can run into difficulties against any side if you don’t face them with both respect and thorough preparation.”
