Matri: Goals will give me confidence

Juventus match-winner Alessandro Matri has admitted that he has struggle with confidence over the past few months.

The former Cagliari man scored two against his old club as the Bianconeri won 3-1 against Ivo Pulga's side this evening.

But the 28-year-old has conceded that his second and third goals of the season have been a long time coming.

“I've been looking for those goals for a long time,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “Morale goes down when you haven't found the net, but the team has helped me a lot.

“Cagliari are a team that will always be in my heart.”

He also commented on the victory, which saw Antonio Conte's side score three goals in the last 15 minutes to claim the three points.

“There was a strange atmosphere here today, and it was difficult to play in this environment.

“We had a good reaction in the second half and this win puts out a good signal for the championship.”
