Marchisio doesn't fear Chelsea

By Football News



Claudio Marchisio is confident that Serie A club, Juventus can get a positive result against Barclays Premier League team Chelsea in order to advance in the Champions League.

The reigning Serie A champions currently sit third in Group E, trailing joint leaders Shakhtar Donetsk and Chelsea by one point with two more games to go, and Marchisio has insisted that his side don't fear the current trophy holders.

"If we take to the field as we have done in the last couple of last games, both in the Champions League and Serie A, then we certainly have no need to fear Chelsea," Marchisio told reporters.

"We didn't fear them in the first encounter, when we found ourselves 2-0 down and fought back to draw.

"We'll have great respect for the reigning European champions, but we'll face them with the knowledge that we've grown considerably in the last year and have everything that's needed to get through to the next round."

Juventus host Chelsea in Turin on Tuesday November 20.
