The Rossoneri are chasing Napoli in a close race at the top of the Serie A table.

Milan boss Stefano Pioli says his side need to “get above” 85 points to secure the Serie A title this season.

The Rossoneri are enjoying fantastic form at the moment, preparing to continue their league campaign on a four-game winning streak.

Pioli’s side have faced serious competition from Napoli in the Scudetto race this season. However, the Italian boss believes topping the table before the World Cup is not their main goal.

“We have many important games in a few days, but the team are doing well,” the Milan boss said ahead of his side’s match against Torino. “I have players who are available and strong.

“I will field those who I consider appropriate to win these challenges. Tomorrow is the most important, we are prepared to face it in the best possible way.

“We need to score as many points as possible. It will not be decisive to be first on November 13, but you have to get above 85 points. The more games you win now, the better.”

He added: “We want to give continuity by looking for a streak of results as long as possible. Napoli are doing very well and winning on Sunday would be important.”
