    Having put two goals past Trabzonspor over the two legs, Pablo Daniel discussed how he's finding life with his new strike partners, before calling for focus ahead of Juve's forthcoming visit to San Siro

    That's two starts and two goals in Europe for Pablo Daniel Osvaldo - not a bad return for a January arrival still settling in to life wearing the black and white stripes.

    Speaking to the media after the whistle blew on Juve’s 2-0 win over Trabzonspor this evening, the striker grinned:  “It's quite good! We played well tonight. We had them on the back foot right from the off and fortunately we managed to get an early goal. That took a bit of the tension out of the rest of the match.”

    Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has described him as the prototype of the modern striker: one who harries, covers every blade of grass and chips in with the goals too, and another of his assets is his ability to adapt to team-mates.

    “I find it easy to play with Tevez, Llorente and Giovinco. They all have different qualities and I'm trying to get used to each of them. Seba and I did our fair share of defensive work tonight as well, that's what we needed most. Luckily I managed to score too.”

    Osvaldo was then asked for his view on Juventus' next European opponents and the short trip down the road to Florence to face Vincenzo Montella's team, so far the only Serie A outfit to have taken three points off Antonio Conte's men in the league this season.

    “I'd have happily done without Fiorentina, they're a top side,” he commented, but stressed the importance of clearing one hurdle at a time by then adding: “Before thinking about anything else, we must first concentrate on AC Milan.”
