Marchetti hopes for Supercoppa win

Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti has admitted he is looking forward to the new season, and wants to start with a Supercoppa win over Juventus.

The Coppa Italia winners face the Serie A champions at Stadio Olimpico in the annual campaign opener.

And the shot-stopper hopes the game can set the scene for the season, whilst also commenting on the recent Confederations Cup.

“I want to go and enjoy my holidays and return ready for the new season,” he told Lazio Style Radio.

“We played a good tournament in Brazil. There is a bit of regret for the semi-final loss to Spain, but we did well.

“Next season we immediately have a tough challenge with Juventus.

“They are a strong team and have reinforced even further this summer.

“We just want to play well and try to lift the trophy – hopefully that can kickstart our season.”
