Marchisio targets Europa League

Claudio Marchisio says Juventus won’t underestimate the Europa League following their Champions League exit.

The Old Lady were demoted from Europe’s premier club competition after defeat at Galatasaray, but they will now be in a position to target a trophy whose Final will be played at the Juventus Stadium.

“We were really disappointed to go out of the Champions League, but unfortunately that was the way it went,” the Italian international told JTV.

“Now we know that we have to at least have a go at winning the Europa League, even if we know that will not be easy.

“We want to have the possibility of winning the trophy in our stadium, but we saw in the group stages of the two European competitions that there are some very important teams.”

Juventus will take on Trabzonspor in the next round of the competition and they could face Fiorentina in the last 16.
