Schelotto: Inter ready for Juventus clash

The 23-year-old is confident that his side will be up for the challenge when the Nerazzurri host the reigning champions on Saturday
Inter winger Ezequiel Schelotto is eagerly anticipating this weekend's Serie A encounter against Juventus and has insisted that he and his team-mates will be more than ready for the match.

The Giuseppe Meazza side recorded a 3-1 away win in the first Derby d'Italia of the season back in November, and Schelotto is keen to bag the full three points and do the double over the league leaders.

"We've had the international break and that's given us time to prepare properly for the match and we've been working very hard. We're fired up and ready for it," Schelotto told reporters.

"Juve have just won an important game, whereas we didn't play, so we were able to rest a bit more. It's going to be a tough game."

Schelotto netted a crucial goal against rivals AC Milan earlier this season, and he admits he is keen to add to his personal tally versus Juve.

"Would I like to follow up my goal against Milan by hitting the net against Juve? It's always great to score but Inter comes first. I'm happy with my goal against Milan but if we beat Juve and I don't score I'll be just as happy."

The 23-year-old has scored once in six Serie A appearances for Inter so far.
