Marchisio: Juventus gunning for Inter revenge

The midfielder is desperate to make amends for the Bianconeri's home defeat earlier this season when both sides lock horns again at the weekend
Claudio Marchisio says Juventus will be gunning for revenge when they take on Inter at the Giuseppe Meazza on Saturday evening.

The Serie A leaders were beaten 3-1 in Turin earlier this season, and the Italy international has revealed the Old Lady are desperate to make amends.

"We are trying not to think too much about the Champions League. We have the league match against Inter coming up first, and we are all looking forward to that game," Marchisio told Tuttosport.

"Not just because we lost the home match versus them, but mainly because we want to maintain our lead over Napoli and AC Milan.

"However, there's of course that home loss against Inter, too. We were unbeaten at our new stadium until then.

"I cannot deny that we are gunning for revenge after the 3-1 loss in Turin."

Juventus currently sit atop of the Serie A table, holding a nine-point lead over second-placed Napoli.
