Juventus coach Antonio Conte insists a Serie A title defence would be an extraordinary achievement for the club.

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has claimed that a successful defence of his side's Serie A title would be "extraordinary".

A win over local rivals Torino today would take Conte's team go 11 points clear at the top of the table with four games left.

The Italian coach has insisted that it is not easy to win the title as favourites, but believes that they deserve the trophy should they see out the remainder of the season as expected.

"I would say a second title would be extraordinary because it isn't easy to win again when you're the favourite, and it isn't easy to win in Italy for the second time in a row," Conte told reporters.

"If we do win this Scudetto - and let's stress we're still talking about something hypothetical, it's still an 'if' - it will surely be a Scudetto remembered for the intensity of our play, our determination and our consistency.

"These are all characteristics we proved we have more of than other teams."

Conte took over as Juve coach in 2011.
