Inter Captain Zanetti Preparing For 'Great Challenge' Against Juventus

The Nerazzurri captain is hoping his side can gain even more of an advantage by winning the Derby d'Italia against the Bianconeri on Saturday...
Inter stalwart Javier Zanetti is pleased his side have a ten point advantage over Juventus in the race for the Scudetto and is confident that his club will play well against the Turin-based outfit this weekend.

"The match against Juventus will be a great challenge for everyone involved, not just for us, but for Juve as well," the Argentine international suggested, according to Calciomercato.

Many feel that the Beneamata have already wrapped up the league title, but a positive result at the Stadio Olimpico would cement their position at the top of the table even further.

"It is an important match in the history of the club and comes at a key moment in the season. We are preparing well and hope to perform in the best possible way," concluded Zanetti.

The 35-year-old has been an ever present force in the line-up once again this season, making 40 appearances for the club in all competitions.
