Marchisio on Derby d'Italia

Claudio Marchisio has insisted he does not have to explain why Inter against Juventus is such a big game.

The two play each other this Saturday at San Siro, and the midfielder has claimed that it one of the biggest matches in Europe, whilst also commenting on his recovery from injury.

“I cannot wait to get back on the pitch,” he told the official Serie A website. “I am recovering well and will, hopefully, next week, get back on the field for some tests.

“That will determine whether I’m ready to get back with my teammates.

“I believe that there is not much to explain with Inter-Juventus.

“It is a game that is felt not just in Italy but throughout Europe. All the players know how to prepare for this challenge.

“We will be strong regardless of who plays.”
