I want to see a team that is aware of its strengths

I want to see a team that is aware of its strengths, but tomorrow's game will not be decisive: we will have to be good at managing everything over the 180 minutes.

The league defeat taught us a lot: when we're not on the ball we're not ourselves. We were lucky that the next challenge was a final, the Super Cup against Napoli just three days later, which immediately raised our spirits.

We've had some great games, but we mustn't get complacent: we're only at the start of the second half of the season and there's still a lot to do.

I expect the usual Inter game, which will try to implement the ideas of Conte, a coach we know well. We've been preparing over the last few days for what might happen: they're very good at closing down and break forward. We'll have to play a careful game.

My greatest certainty is the group, guys who still have a great desire to win, which is fundamental for an ambitious team like Juve. That's the strength I carry within me every day.

Compared to the win against Sampdoria, Buffon will be back in goal, the only one missing will be Ramsey, who had a slight injury yesterday in training and we hope to recover him for Saturday. For the rest we'll see tomorrow.

Arthur an attacking midfielder, very good at handling the ball and setting the pace. He is always on the move, he gives us great vision.

Morata is the modern striker we were looking for, he's giving us a lot. He's not a static striker who stops in the middle of the area, but he likes to move all over the place, he attacks deep and he knows how to play with his teammates.
