Sarri: Inter are a complete side, very dangerous

The Juventus manager wants his team to build on recent performances and impose their quality on the game, with Antonio Conte’s side on top form

Maurizio Sarri warned Juventus they will face “a complete team” when they play Inter at San Siro on Sunday and called for the Serie A champions to build on their recent strong performances.

Inter suffered a 2-1 defeat at Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday, but Sarri said his men would not be favourites to win.

“We are going up against a strong team, in a moment of good health,” Sarri told reporters.

“In this game there are no favourites; I only see two strong teams. It’s a great feeling to know how to play a game like this.

“Inter are a complete team, very dangerous and good at bouncing back. It will be a beautiful match.

“It will be important to leave San Siro having made a good performance. Looking at the table would be a gross mistake.”

“We must confirm the progress we are making,” said Sarri. “At this stage we must be very focused on performance.

“Our average ball recovery line has become higher than the first few matches. There was an improvement.

“We must go and impose our football with quality. Then the game will tell us if we need to adapt to other phases too.”
