Claudio Marchisio: Delighted with Juventus' win at Celtic

Juventus got off to a flying start when Alessando Matri fired the Italian champions in front after just three minutes.

The Bianconeri then soaked up a lot of Celtic pressure before hitting them with two late goals from Marchisio and Mirko Vucinic.

Despite taking a three-goal lead back to Turin for the second leg on March 6, Marchisio is refusing to consider that the tie is over.

"It is a very important victory, especially as we can be a little more concentrated on Serie A," said Marchisio.

"We haven't passed through yet, but it is a great win in a difficult arena and we put in a fine performance.

"It's true it is tough to overturn a 3-0 away win, but we must never be certain and always go out there with the same determination.

"This team is having a great Champions League. This was an important signal to ourselves and nobody else. It was crucial to come here and score a goal, but we ended up getting three."

Juventus displayed some strong-arm tactics when defending corners with several players grabbling with each other and Marchisio admitted it was a planned move employed by them to keep Celtic at bay from set-pieces.

"We saw they scored many goals from corners and with crosses into the box, so tried our best to make it difficult for them," added Marchisio.

"It is their nature to be gritty and physical, but we gave as good as we got."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
