Chiellini: 'Inter is battle within battle'

Giorgio Chiellini points out Juventus-Inter is “the battle within a battle, a special game for us, the club and fans.”

The rivalry between the two sides make this the Derby d'Italia and on Sunday there will be a showdown.

“There's no point hiding it, a match against Inter represents the battle within a battle. It's a special game for us, the club and fans, but also the table,” said the Bianconeri defender.

“It is a game that brings a great deal in terms of emotions, but also at the end of the day is worth three points, regardless of the different sensations it may give. We're convinced that we are in good shape and will go out there to win.”

Chiellini has returned to his old left-back role at both club and international level.

“I have always been at the disposal of the Coach and have no problems playing at left-back. I don't think it's a definitive change, but one does anything for the team.”
