The Chile international made the vital breakthrough in the Turin derby, thus putting the Bianconeri in a position to clinch the Serie A title against Palermo next weekendArturo Vidal was ecstatic after Juventus moved to within a single point of their second successive Scudetto with a 2-0 success at Torino on Sunday.
The Chile international netted with just four minutes to go before Claudio Marchisio added an injury-time second to secure a victory which restored the Bianconeri's 11-point lead at the summit of Serie A with just four rounds remaining.
Consequently, Juve can now clinch the title with nothing more than a draw at home to Palermo next weekend.
“It was vital to win today," Vidal is quoted as saying by his club's official website. "There’s really not long to go now.
"But there’s still one point to get so we have to keep preparing well and then play a great game against Palermo. After that, we can celebrate.
“It was a difficult game. Torino played well and proved to be very well prepared tactically. It was tough, as it always is in derby matches.”
While Juve are poised to underline their Serie A superiority next weekend, Vidal insists there is no chance of Antonio Conte's men resting on their laurels given they desperately want to replicate their domestic dominance in European competition next season.
“We still have to improve," the midfielder acknowledged. "You always need to and that’s what we want to do, because our aim is to win everything.”
Vidal joined Juve from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011 and is now set to collect his second Scudetto in two seasons.
