Juventus coach Luigi Delneri said his team cannot afford to mess up any more as they cling to the faint hope of playing Champions League football next season.

The Turin giants sit eight points behind fourth-placed Udinese with just seven games left but have been buoyed by winning their last two games, only the second time since the turn of the year they have won two games in a row.

If they beat Genoa at home on Sunday, it will be the first time this season they've managed three victories in succession.

Their 2-0 victory at Roma last weekend has instilled some confidence in the side but Delneri knows they can ill afford any more defeats if they are to play in Europe, even the Europa League, next season.

"We can't mess up any more if we want to keep hoping. We need to repeat the performance we showed against Roma and we have the desire and quality to do that," he said.

"We're ready to reap what we can, we'll give our all and at the end of the season we'll have no regrets."

"Then we'll see if it's possible to achieve something. I'm superstitious so I don't want to talk about (the Champions League)."

However, Delneri says his team still needs to learn how to see out games.

"Maybe we would have had five or six more points if we'd shown a little more determination at the end of certain games," he added.
