‘Juve are strong, but so are we’

Emiliano Moretti says that Torino hold Juventus in respect, but do not fear them ahead of this weekend’s derby.

Il Toro travel out to the Juventus Stadium for Week 25’s clash on the Sunday evening in continued good form, but still the underdogs to the Bianconero League leaders.

“We know that the task will not be simple, they are strong, both in their individuals and as a collective,” Moratti has conceded to Tuttosport on the fixture ahead.

“But so are we, from July until now, we have been prepared to fight for the team. We will leave the field without regrets, as has been the way throughout the year.

“Even against Bologna [when Torino lost 2-1], for example, we give it our all. Then, of course, some games go a certain way.

“We are not worried, we must give the best of ourselves. Then, after the game, we will do the sums.

“Conte? He is a hammer, and shows very well the difference between good players and champions - the latter are the first to arrive in the field and the last to leave.”
