Federico Bernardeschi welcomes the competition for places as “fundamental at a club of this level” as Juventus host Genoa.

“We know that this is certainly not an easy game, but we are fired up and want to win it,” Bernardeschi told Sky Sport Italia and JTV.

“This is the objective for every match. We hope to put in a great performance and bring home the points.

“Competition for places gives us great motivation and it’s fundamental at a club of this level. We all know that we’ve got to give 100 per cent to keep our place.

“Cristiano Ronaldo is focused and calm. He’s a great champion also because of his mentality and ability to concentrate entirely on the game.”
