Juve target Champions League place

SoccerNews in Serie A, UEFA Champions League 11 Apr 2011


Luigi Delneri said Juventus must maintain their approach from their 3-2 win over Genoa if they are to finish fourth in the Serie A.

Juve currently sit fifth – six points behind Lazio – who occupy the last Champions League place, with six matches remaining.

Juve claimed the three points to maintain their push for fourth after twice clawing back from behind against Genoa on Sunday.

“The team has done really well to bounce back after giving away an early own goal,” Delneri said.

“My players fought for 90 minutes and we created at least eight goal-scoring chances.”

“We were always in the game and the Genoa goalkeeper (Eduardo) made excellent saves today.”

Delneri said his side would fight for the last Champions League spot until the very end.

“We have to continue to work and show the same approach in our remaining matches,” he said.

“We will continue to battle and try to climb further up in the standings.”

Striker Alessandro Matri, who scored the second goal in Juve’s win, said he was feeling more settled since his loan move from Cagliari.

“The group helped me a lot. They’ve made me feel at home here since I’ve arrived,” he said.

“They’ve been very close to me since my arrival and, as I was saying before, the presence of a lot of Italian young players at Juventus helps a lot a young guy like me – a guy 26/27 years old who is having his first experience at a top level team.”

Juventus travel away to Fiorentina next weekend.
