Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli is happy to take winning form into his side’s Champions League clash with Celtic on Tuesday.

A first-half strike from Mirko Vucinic and a bizarre goal from Alessandro Matri – scoring in his socks after his boot fell off – was enough for Juventus to defeat Fiorentina 2-0 on Saturday as the league leaders moved five points clear at the top of the Serie A table.

But now their attention turns to the opening leg of their last-16 Champions League clash against Celtic during the week and Barzagli believes his side travels to Glasgow in a positive frame of mind.

“We will be playing in the Champions League on Tuesday and that game is very important for us, so it’s helpful that we won today,” he said.

“We’re very happy because it wasn’t easy to win the match and we did it with an excellent performance, so we’re more than happy.”

Fellow defender Federico Peluso said Juventus will not setup with a defensive approach against Celtic and that his side will attack against the Scottish champions.

“No, we are not a team with a defensive attitude, we train to attack, it’s one of our main characteristics and today we put it clearly onto the pitch,” he said.

“It’s a good victory for us, good for our morale and the best thing for Tuesday’s match (against Celtic), which is very important for us.

“It will have great emotion, everyone would like to play in (the) Champions League, let’s be hoping for the best.”
