Bonucci warns Inter: Juventus hungrier than ever for Derby d'Italia victory

The Bianconeri stalwart is eagerly anticipating a win in Sunday’s clash with their arch rivals as a means to bounce back from their disappointing Champions League outing

Leonardo Bonucci has warned Inter that Juventus are hungrier than ever for Derby d’Italia victory this weekend following their disappointing 0-0 Champions League draw with Sevilla.

The Serie A champions are regarded as one of the outsiders to win European club football’s elite competition on Wednesday, but they failed to get off to a winning start.

And Juve will be looking to return to winning ways against Inter this Sunday having started their bid for a sixth consecutive Scudetto with three straight victories.

“Sunday’s match against Inter will be a tough test for us against a team in transition; no doubt they will be looking to prove to the home fans that they can compete at our level,” Bonucci told the club’s official website.

“Regardless, the Derby d’Italia is the Derby d’Italia and having missed out on the win on Wednesday, we’ll be hungrier than ever to succeed this weekend.

“My dream has always been to win trophies with Juventus and if we keep our focus on all fronts this season, we can truly enter into legend.

“We’ve made some excellent signings of genuine match-winning quality. Guys like [Juan] Cuadrado, [Marko] Pjaca and [Miralem] Pjanic love to receive the ball between the lines and cause trouble.

“Their movement is such that it makes my job of finding them very easy.”
