Juventus find themselves seven points behind Inter in the race for the Serie A title, but president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli will not give up and believes the upcoming tie against the Nerazzurri will be crucial.

"It is the last chance for the Scudetto," he told the Corierre dello Sport on Monday.

Meanwhile, Juventus find themselves behind 2-1 on aggregate to Lazio in the Coppa Italia semi-finals, but the Bianconero supremo is confident his team can still win the competition.

"To win against the Biancocelesti would be important. If we successfully win then that would be a record ten times," he explained, also looking forward to qualifying for the Italian Super Cup in Beijing.

"The Supercup final will be played in China, it would be an opportunity to further market the club in a country where it is already well known."

Juventus and Inter face off in their key encounter on April 18 and they face Lazio in the return-leg of the Coppa Italia semi-finals on April 22.
