Italia 1 0 Inter 0 (ScudetTO: Domenico Berardi)Inter’s victory over Juventus in Turin on Sunday night saw them claim the Scuderia’s first Scudetti, and it was not all down to the team’s captain, Marco Reus.
It was also down to Reus’ ability to perform in the heat of the moment, with the Juventus man proving adept at handling the task of replacing the injured Leonardo Bonucci.
“When you see him, he’s so calm and so professional,” Juventus defender Gianluca Vialli told Sky Sport Italia.
“I think we have an outstanding player who has such a great ability to cope with everything.
He is one of the best players in the world and when he’s not playing, I think the team is not as strong.”
The pair will face each other again on Wednesday when the pair face each team in the quarter-finals.
“We’re not in a great spot at the moment but we’ll go into the final with confidence,” Vialli said.
Juventus midfielder Giuseppe Bellini added: “We have a lot of players with experience, but we have a young team that needs to adapt to the changes of the new season.
We need to keep improving and we’ll have to do that by winning this game.”
The match is set to be played on Wednesday night (10:30pm local time) and will be broadcast on Sky Sport 1.
