Juventus response pleases Marchisio

By Football News



Claudio Marchisio believes Juventus will take plenty of confidence from their convincing 3-0 Serie A derby victory over Torino on Saturday.

The Italy midfielder scored twice while Sebastian Giovinco added a third as the Bianconeri coasted past their rivals, and the 26-year-old was delighted two club academy products netted the goals which handed bragging rights to the Scudetto champions.

"It's important that we got back to winning ways after a bad performance against Milan," Marchisio told Football Italia.

"It's good for our confidence to win so convincingly.

"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 win moves Juventus five points clear of Napoli at the top of Serie A, with the second-placed side set to play on Sunday against Pescara.
