Juventus right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner was delighted after his side returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory at Chievo.
Lichtsteiner scored what proved to be the winning goal shortly before half-time after Alessandro Matri had given the visitors the lead in the 10th minute.
Cyril Thereau set up a tense finish by pulling a goal back in the second half, but Juve held on to record their first Serie A victory since January 19.
“Today’s victory was very important for us. We dropped many points in January, which was also down to an element of bad luck,” the defender told Sky Sport Italia.
“We struggled a bit in the second half and could have handled things a little better after the restart. We’re still top of the league, but we know we’ll need to remain alert because Napoli are a great side, as are Lazio and Inter.”
Juve assistant coach Angelo Alessio praised his side and felt they were always in control of the clash.
“The game was always in our hands,” he said.
“In the first half we scored two goals and could’ve had more. We only failed to control the match properly in the opening 10 minutes of the second half.”
