    Marko Pjaca previews Sunday evening’s Derby d’Italia against Inter among other topics in today’s interview with Sky

    Having featured in recent league wins over Lazio and Sassuolo, Marko Pjaca can now look forward to taking in his very first Derby d’Italia when the Bianconeri lock horns with Inter on Sunday evening at the San Siro.

    This imminent, mouthwatering encounter against the Nerazzurri would naturally form the topline of the Croatia international’s interview today with Sky, while other topics too would emerge from the feeling of facing his former club Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League to an assessment of his partners in attack.

    Here is a selection of Pjaca’s standout quotations:

    All eyes on Inter

    “It doesn’t matter if Inter lost yesterday. Sunday’s match is a derby and special occasion. We’re playing away from home, so it won’t be straightforward. Nevertheless, we want to win and will try our very best to do so. After all, Juventus enter every competition looking to go all the way in it, whether in Serie A or the Champions League.”

    Dinamo duel

    “Dinamo are a very strong side and they’ll provide tough opposition on the night (27 September), just like in any European tie. It will be an especially emotional affair for me, but right now I’m only thinking about winning the match.”

    Excellent up front

    “Dybala is a fantastic player, who reads the game excellently both in terms of building attacks and finishing them off. He’s got everything it takes in order to become one of the world’s best.

    “I already knew Mandzukic before coming here and he’s helped me settle in. Mario is probably one of the best strikers around within the 18-yard box.

    “Finally, in Higuain we’ve a truly great striker, both inside and outside the area. Physically speaking, he’s a beast.”

    Versatility a virtue

    “For Dinamo, I played both in midfield and up front. Here my role is that of the second striker and I’ll do my best to prove my worth to my team-mates, the manager and the fans. I want to help this club enjoy a successful season domestically and in Europe.”
