Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says the 0-0 draw away at Internazionale will not decide the fate of the title race.
The Bianconeri dropped two more points as they could only manage a draw against Roberto Mancini's side.
And Allegri says his team has to improve in attack if they are to defend the Scudetto they won at the end of last season.
"We needed to be as clinical in front of goal as [Andrea] Barzagli was at the back for us tonight," Allegri said.
"We got into some good positions this evening, as we have done all season, but nine goals in eight games isn't title-winning form. We've still got plenty of work to do.
"A point doesn't do a lot for us but on the plus side we stopped Inter from scoring and winning and we did so by defending very well. In front of goal, of course, we need to improve, but defensively we were very good tonight.
"Tonight's game won't decide the fate of the championship. So long as we're in contention for the title come March, I'll be happy. Slowly but surely we'll force our way back into the title picture by remaining calm and building up some consistency in our results."
