Marchisio: 'Juve academy works'

Claudio Marchisio thinks it’s “a great sign” that he and fellow Juventus academy product Sebastian Giovinco scored in the Derby della Mole.

Marchisio bagged a brace and Giovinco got one in tonight’s 3-0 victory over city rivals Torino – a special occasion, as both were born and bred in Turin.

“It’s important that we got back to winning ways after a bad performance against Milan. It’s good for our confidence to win so convincingly,” said the midfielder.

“It’s a great sign that Giovinco and I both scored, as we grew up in the Juve youth academy.

“Now we have notched up important points that ensure we stay top of the table, we have to turn our attention to the Champions League.”

The Bianconeri travel to Ukraine and need a point against Shakhtar Donetsk to be sure of qualification, knocking out Champions League holders Chelsea.
