Chiellini: 'Beating Inter is fundamental'

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini feels that beating Inter in the Derby d'Italia this weekend is absolutely fundamental.

There is no love lost between the two sides, especially after Calciopoli, but Juventus need a win in order to climb back into contention for a place in next year's Champions League.

Speaking while on international duty with Italy, he said: "The game against the Nerazzurri will be very important both for our season and for our fans."

Juventus are six points behind Inter in the table having played a game in hand.
