Yepes excited for heavyweight battle

24 February 2012 14:17

AC Milan defender Mario Yepes is eagerly anticipating Saturday's Serie A blockbuster against Juventus at San Siro.

All eyes will be on Juventus playmaker Andrea Pirlo as the midfielder returns to the club where he achieved great success, but Yepes has warned that there is more to their opponents than just the 32-year-old Pirlo.

"Juventus are not reliant on just one player. They are a very strong collective, and every player is important for them," Yepes told Goal.com.

"They have an immense desire to win and to return to the top. They are high on confidence and are still unbeaten. That boosts their morale even further and makes them more determined to win."

Milan currently sit top of the table with a one-point lead over their Turin-based rivals, and are keen to extend the gap by bagging all three points. Nevertheless, Yepes has stressed that Saturday's encounter will not be decisive in deciding this season's champions.

"The match versus Juventus won't be decisive for the Scudetto. There are still many games to be played and points to be earned. A win would obviously be a big boost though, and we hope to record a victory," he said.
