      The midfielder calls for Juventus to show greater focus in forward areas: “We’re creating a great deal but misfiring in the final third”

      Claudio Marchisio says the Bianconeri will have to sharpen up in attack if they are to continue their positive start to this season’s Champions League as well as making up ground on the domestic front.

      The midfielder, speaking after this evening’s goalless Group D draw with Borussia Mönchengladbach, admits that the team’s slow introduction to their Serie A campaign has been a bitter pill to swallow, especially for the new arrivals, but insists greater focus in the final third will see Juventus fulfill their undoubted potential.

      The 29-year-old said: “We’ve been creating plenty since the start of the season and now have gained greater consistency at the back. All we’re missing is that clarity of mind when picking out the final pass. All of us, not just the strikers, are misfiring in the final third. That’s what we need to work on.

      “Starting the season on a losing note didn’t help the group. It hasn’t been easy for the new arrivals, knowing they’ve joined a team that always wins. We need to try and overcome this moment, because there’s a lot of quality in this squad.”
