Juventus head coach Antonio Conte is not yet thinking about winning the Europa League, despite his side being in the semi-finals.

Juventus head coach Antonio Conte has insisted that talk of his side winning the Europa League this season is "premature", with three games still to go if they are to succeed.

The Old Lady play the opening leg of their semi-final away to Benfica on Thursday night, and Conte said that his side must be at their best to get past their Portuguese opponents.

"Talking about an eventual victory is premature," BBC Sport quotes Conte as saying.

"We know that to get to the final we need to play 180 minutes against a very strong team which lost the final against Chelsea last season and we cannot forget that Chelsea are a potential finalist in the Champions League this year."

Juventus are currently eight points clear at the top of Serie A.
