Matri makes goal promise

Alessandro Matri is confident that he will start scoring goals again on a regular basis for Juventus.

The 28-year-old is struggling to ripple the net given that he has scored just once in nine games across all competitions so far this season.

And he was again left goalless after being handed a start in the 4-0 win over Nordsjaelland on Wednesday evening.

“As I have already stated, there is no regret that the goal didn’t arrive,” he stated. “I hit the bar, I had other opportunities, but I’m not unhappy.

“In fact, I think that I gave 101 per cent. I didn’t think I was in great form, but the important thing was that we won.

“A goal will follow – I promise!”

Matri could be given another opportunity against Pescara this weekend, although stories this morning suggested that Juve would start with Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella in attack.
