Marchisio: Juventus can take confidence from convincing derby win

The midfielder was thrilled with his side's response following their defeat to AC Milan last week, adding that it is great to see two club academy products on the scoresheet
Claudio Marchisio believes Juventus will take plenty of confidence from their convincing 3-0 derby victory over Torino on Saturday evening.

The Italy midfielder scored twice while Sebastian Giovinco added a third as the Bianconeri cruised to victory, and the 26-year-old was delighted that two club academy products netted the goals which handed bragging rights to the Scudetto champions.

"It’s important that we got back to winning ways after a bad performance against Milan,” Marchisio was quoted as saying by Football Italia. "It’s good for our confidence to win so convincingly.

"It’s a great sign that Giovinco and I both scored, as we grew up in the Juve youth academy.

"Now we have notched up important points that ensure we stay top of the table, we have to turn our attention to the Champions League."

The win moves Juventus five points clear of Napoli at the top of Serie A, with the second-placed side set to play on Sunday against Pescara.
