Meggiorini highlights Giovinco threat

Torino striker Riccardo Meggiorini has admitted that if he could have one Juventus player ahead of this weekend's derby, it would be Sebastian Giovinco.

The 27-year-old forward has conceded that the former Parma man is the one he believes could make the difference on Saturday, and also commented on the atmosphere he's expecting for the match.

“If I could have one Juve player? It's a difficult one, but it would have to be Giovinco,” he told Radio RTL.

“We have been focusing intensely on this game for several days now,” he continued. “Each player has his own way of dealing with these pressures, but for me, I find it hard to sleep.

“Hopefully it'll all be worth it though. I know it's against the odds, but it would be beautiful if we could get a positive result.

“They have found a great atmosphere in their new stadium. But once we're on the field, we'll only think about playing.”
