Zanetti ready for Juventus challenge

Javier Zanetti says that his Inter side will face Juventus on Saturday in confident mood after another Serie A victory.

The Nerazzurri fell behind to Sampdoria on Wednesday, but eventually won 3-2 to move into second place – four points adrift of the Old Lady.

“We'll go there as a team on the up and will look to play our own game,” the captain told Inter Channel. “We know we're playing a great team, let's hope it's a good game of football.”

Inter have now won their last six matches in the Italian top flight, but it was the manner of their victory at San Siro which pleased the Argentine.

Our comeback was a great sign,” he explained. “We conceded a goal, which can happen, but we had the strength to respond without getting impatient and we used our quality.

“In the first half we created many chances, while we did everything we could after the break to win the match and we succeeded.”

Inter were catapulted to victory by the skills of Rodrigo Palacio, Antonio Cassano and Diego Milito.

“We have three excellent forwards who are all doing their bit,” Zanetti stated. “They're all stars and we're lucky enough to enjoy their ability, both in training and matches.

“I hope they continue in this vein.”
