Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic says that defeat to Chelsea in the Champions could derail their season.

The Serie A side begin a potentially season-defining week when they host fellow league high-fliers Lazio in Turin on Saturday but they could be forgiven for having one eye on their crunch midweek European clash.

Reigning champions Chelsea will arrive at the Juventus Stadium on Tuesday knowing that if they take a point from their visit they will all but end Juve’s hopes of progressing.

And with a tough trip to AC Milan to follow next weekend Vucinic knows there is little room for error.

“We cannot drop our guard this week,” the former Roma striker told his official website.

“These are three games which could determine the destiny of our season, between Scudetto and Champions League. We cannot afford to put a foot wrong, especially against Chelsea.”
