Blaise Matuidi is adamant that his side will have domestic glory this season.

“I’m not surprised to see Napoli so high up,” Matuidi said to Sky.

“They’re getting better and better. They’ve been playing together for some time, and they’ll stay with us until the end.

“It’s a long season, but I’m sure in the end Juventus will win the title.”

Juve will need to beat a strong Lazio side on Saturday.

“It’s a beautiful game, and a difficult one. They’re full of confidence but we’re playing at home and we want to win.

“My adaptation? It’s important for me that I have [Coach Max] Allegri’s confidence, so I can feel good for the national team too.

“My performances with my club determine those with France, and I’m happy with what I’m doing at Juventus.

“We have important objectives we want to achieve, like finishing above [Napoli Coach Maurizio] Sarri. I want to guarantee my contribution.”

Can Buffon win the Ballon d’Or?

“I hope he can find himself on the podium, because he had a great season. In any case we’re very proud of him. He’s a legend.”
