Juventus' long-serving forward Alessandro Del Piero has urged his team-mates to keep concentration during the run in for the Scudetto.
The record goalscorer scored a late free kick to give the Bianconeri a 2-1 win against Internazionale on Sunday, a victory which all but handed the title to the Old Lady.
Although Juventus are now 12 points clear of second-placed Inter, the 31-year-old has underlined the importance of his team-mates keeping their concentration for the rest of the season.
Despite claims that Del Piero's goal could be the one that sees the title remain at the Stadio Delle Alpi, the experienced striker will not be taking things easy for the remainder of the campaign.
"I don't know if the goal against Inter should be the one for the Scudetto, but there are many matches remaining," Del Piero said.
"Undoubtedly we have a big advantage, but I think the best thing is to keep our foot on the accelerator, that is what we are able to do best."
Juventus face a trip to Stadio Giovanni Celeste when they meet Messina in Serie A on Saturday.
