Juventus assistant manager Angelo Alessio praised the attacking intent of his side following Saturday's 6-1 demolition of Pescara.

Fabio Quagliarella hit a hat-trick, while Arturo Vidal, Kwadwo Asamoah and Sebastian Giovinco were also on target for the visitors, as Emmanuel Cascione scored Pescara's consolation.

The win extended Antonio Conte's side's lead at the top of Serie A to four points over Inter Milan, their conquerors last week who travel to face Atalanta on Sunday night.

Juventus have scored 10 goals in their last two matches and Alessio believes Saturday's win coupled with the 4-0 hammering of FC Nordsjælland on Wednesday shows how prolific they can be in front of goal.

"Both in the cup match and this evening we played our game with intensity and attacked the opponent," he told Juventus.com.

"The approach was right. Our football is organised and unpredictable.

"These are the weapons that have characterised this team.

"Quagliarella? Fabio did well on several occasions and has now scored three goals. In this team, there are no hierarchies, Antonio simply decided who played based on who looks best in training."

The striker came off the bench during the week to score and Saturday's treble took his to tally eight for the season.

"It 's my first hat-trick and that is nice, but it was important to win," he said.

"We showed that it was a blip against Inter.

"It is now past. We worked on our mistakes and we immediately resumed (winning)."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
