Milos Krasic has made no secret of the fact that Juventus needed Sunday's 2-1 win at home to Brescia.
The Old Lady hadn't recorded a victory in four games and her season risked ending disastrously.
"The victory is all that counted," he said. "It took a victory to put an end to a negative spell, and it can give us the right motivation to finish the season well."
Asked about his goal, Krasic replied: "I hadn't scored for a while. I've gone close on many occasions."
Juventus remain in seventh place, five points adrift of qualification for the Europa League.
