Vialli trusts in Juventus

Gianluca Vialli says that he likes this current Juventus side and thinks that all they're lacking is a little bit of continuity.

The Old Lady had a wobbly January and currently lie eighth in the table, 11 points behind League leaders Milan.

Speaking ahead of the Derby d'Italia against Inter, Vialli said: "Juve have had a few highs and lows. It's not easy.

"There is a new Coach and like in any project it's not simple to reorganise. There have been many injuries and extenuating circumstances that explain why the team has not always expressed itself well.

"The game against Inter will be important. If Juventus win it, they'll get their confidence back."

Asked about the signing of Alessandro Matri, he said: "In my opinion Juventus' problem is that after Trezeguet and Del Piero they were lacking a couple of stable strikers who they could count on.

"There have been many strikers, all very good, but not partnerships. In my opinion the two up front are fundamental. When you know that there is someone in attack who will score sooner or later, it also means you can defend with more tranquility."
