Marchisio confident ahead of Inter

Claudio Marchisio has insisted he has great confidence in his Juventus teammates to put in a good performance against Inter.

The Bianconeri play the Nerazzurri this Saturday in the Derby d’Italia, and the midfielder, who is injured for the clash, believes it will be a tough encounter for his men.

“Inter have always made it difficult for us,” he told reporters. “They beat us last year and also have a new Coach.

“They are capable of playing good, fierce football.

“For us to beat a strong team like Inter on the third day of the season would be a real boost of confidence.

“I am sorry not to be there, but the team is doing well. I have great confidence in my teammates.”
