Inzaghi: I want to beat Juve as a coach

Lazio head coach Simone Inzaghi is eager to get one over the Serie A's top dogs Juventus, when the sides meet at Juventus Stadium this weekend.

Inzaghi's charges have been performing above expectations so far this season and find themselves in fourth position in the standings, five points adrift Juve, who have a game in hand, in top spot.

The Biancocelesti will clash with the Old Lady in Turin on Sunday, and Inzaghi is hopeful his side will pull off an upset.

"We've got to applaud these lads, as at the start of the season nobody believed Lazio would put together 40 points and frankly deserve a few more," he told Rai Sport.

"We are up there and have proved we belong there, even if there are sides who are better-equipped to challenge for those places.

"We've won five of the last six games, losing only to Inter despite an excellent first half. We know Juventus have the record for home wins in a row and have been dominating Serie A for five to six years, but we can only give it our best and see what happens.

"Aside from tactics, we'll need the right interpretation of the game. I thought we had a good performance against Juventus in August and Sami Khedira punished us for an error.

"I beat Juventus as a player and would love to know what it feels like to beat them as a coach too."
