thumbnail Hello,

The attacker is eagerly anticipating this weekend's showpiece event in Beijing, but realises that it will not be an easy game for the reigning Serie A champions

Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic is determined to come out victorious in the Supercoppa Italiana against Napoli on Saturday.

The Old Lady were beaten 2-0 by the Partenopei in the final of the Coppa Italia in May, and the Montenegrin ace is gunning for revenge when both sides meet again this weekend, albeit in China.

"The Super Cup is a difficult game, regardless of who you’re up against, so we’ll stay focused and look to bring the trophy home. We have the desire to win in order to show how strong we are," Vucinic said to reporters.

However, Vucinic is not counting his chickens just yet, as he was quick to note that Napoli will prove to be a tough opponent, having acknowledged their performances in the Champions League.

"We managed to get an important point at the San Paolo last term, which is a tough place to play.

"Napoli can give anyone problems and they also showed that in the Champions League. We’re working to face them in the best possible way."

Saturday's match at the National Stadium kicks off at 14:00UTC.
