Ranieri Pleased with Third Straight Win as Juventus Await Next

Claudio Ranieri is finally seeing some positive results in Sardinia, with a second straight win in Serie A now lifting the Isolani marginally above the drop zone. He is ready to lead his team into safety as the league table takes shape.

Ranieri spoke to DAZN (via CagliariNews24) following the 2-1 victory over Genoa and pointed out the improvements within the team.

“I’m happy for the three points. We knew we had to expect an uncomfortable position in the standings. I’m happy for Nicolas Viola because he’s always ready. I’m also happy for Gaetano Oristanio, I’m satisfied for everyone. Seeing how expert players like Leonardo Pavoletti, Gianluca Lapadula and Viola train is a spectacle. They are the essence of my locker room. Then, of course, there are some considerations to make, which I know can be good for the team. This is a positive moment even if we commit some small naiveties, and we collected important points for the ranking.”

Cagliari and Ranieri face Juventus next, with the Bianconeri on an impressive six-match unbeaten run, all arriving with clean sheets.

“We must think of Juventus who are in a moment of grace, they are fighting to win the Scudetto, and they are not playing in cup competitions. Massimiliano Allegri knows how to motivate and lead his team. It will be a difficult match. Do I think that Juventus is the favorite for the Scudetto? I think not having cup fixtures is an advantage.”

Cagliari sit in 17th spot, just one point above relegation contenders Hellas Verona. Meanwhile, Juventus are second in the table with 26 points, just two off table toppers Inter.
