Juventus Women returned from the international break in real style on Matchday 10 of the Serie A season, claiming a 4-0 win over Pomigliano.
The game marked Martina Lenzini's 100th for the Bianconere, and she was beaming with pride after hitting a century of appearances with a clean sheet.
The post-match comments
“We worked during the week to keep the group fresh, mentally too. The girls have played a lot with their national teams, but this has become normality for us. We’ve found confidence, we played with a lot of calm, and I’m seeing more maturity in the group. We have our way of playing and we believe in our game.
“Thomas has the quality to be a reference point in attack. She attacks the lines and moves well, we’re working on this. Our attack works with width and with midfield support, and having fluidity in attack is vital, as well because it doesn’t give the opposing defence a point of reference.
“[Ella] Palis has grown a lot, we saw her quality today too. Now she needs to find consistency and she can be a very important player for us, she’s a very intelligent player.”

“I think the game wasn’t easy in the first half, we were trying to search for that goal and we were happy we got it before the second half. We tried to find space on the pitch but Pomigliano made it quite hard for us in the first half, but I think in the second half we played better, we found those spaces, we put in those crosses, we got the goals and we’re happy with that win to.”
“Reaching 100 appearances give me a lot of pride, it’s an honour. I’m happy, and as a Juventus-supporting child I never would have thought I’d achieve this.
“Where do I think I fit best? At centre-back, but I adapt well and I can play at full-back, I just try to give 100% any time I play.
“We mustn’t look at what Roma are doing, we have to focus on carving out our own path and winning as many games as we possibly can.”
