Giorgio Chiellini insists that the Serie A and not the Champions League is Juventus's priority this season.

Juventus centre-back Giorgio Chiellini has insisted that the Serie A title is the priority for Juventus this season.

The Italian side were beaten 2-0 by Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final and Chiellini said that defeat will spur his side on in the league.

"Against Bayern we were hoping for a different performance, but I am certain that defeat will motivate us for the return leg on Wednesday," Tuttomercatoweb quotes Chiellini as saying.

"Our minds are now focused on the league match on Saturday. The scudetto remains our priority."

Juventus host Pescara on Saturday.
