Chiellini: Crunch time for Juventus

Giorgio Chiellini is confident that Juventus are ready for a make or break week, with two crucial matches in four days.

The Turin club take on Inter Milan in the Derby d'Italia before a crucial Champions League crunch match against Bayern Munich three days later. Defeat on Saturday will Juve them fall 11 points behind Inter and a negative result against the Germans will mean Champions League elimination.

But Chiellini is confident his side will triumph. "These are make or break games for us, but we will go into both ties with no fear," he told Corriere dello Sport. "We are used to certain situations and are also convinced that we have what is needed to re-emerge."

Third-placed Juve need a win to keep themselves within reach of leaders Inter, and the Italy international admits their 2-0 defeat to Cagliari on Sunday put added pressure on the team to win this weekend. "The real blow was at Cagliari as the gap between ourselves and Inter grew," he said.

Chiellini, who joined Juventus in 2005, is no stranger to big clashes with both Inter and AC Milan, and the defender knows the form book is irrelevant when it comes to games such as the Derby d'Italia.

"I never take to the field with the idea that we are going to lose and I'm not going to start now," he noted. Nevertheless, this is a game where we can see a home win, a draw or an away win. It'll be a balanced game as all these ties are."
