Dejan Stankovic has warned Juventus that they will face the real Inter at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Saturday.
The Nerazzurri have had a disappointing start to the season, while the Bianconeri are unbeaten and currently lead the standings.
"It feels like a huge game to me, partly due to the situation that has been created around it," the former Lazio man stated.
"We're up for it though. We'll prepare calmly in training for three days and then Inter will have to be at their very best."
Inter will go into the tie having narrowly avoided defeat at Atalanta thanks to a late penalty save from Luca Castellazzi.
Although the 1-1 wasn't the result they were looking for, Stankovic insists there were positives from the match.
"We had a good game – we battled and were solid on the pitch. We have to keep thinking positively and look forward," he continued.
"The penalty was dubious, very dubious, but that's how things are going for us at the moment.
"The main thing is that the team is in good shape, mentally and physically. We just need a bit more luck in these things."
