Pandev to avenge Juventus defeat

Goran Pandev is looking for Italian Super Cup revenge when Napoli travel to Juventus in Week 8.

The Old Lady defeated the Azzurri in August’s Supercoppa showdown thanks to a 4-2 scoreline, but only after Pandev and Juan Zuniga were dismissed.

“The Super Cup tie in Beijing was a fake,” the Macedonian noted. “I didn’t say anything to the linesman, but I was still sent off.

“One thing is certain, in the next game, I’ll keep my mouth shut. I won’t even look at an official in the face should I be fouled.

“I now understand how to play against Juventus…”

Both sides are currently top of the League and Pandev is hopeful that his Azzurri can be the first to collect an away victory at the Juventus Stadium.

“I’ve scored three times past Juventus while in the Napoli shirt and now I want another one,” he continued.

“We have to go to Turin without fear, because we have shown that we can play openly against anyone and we can beat the current champions of Italy.

“We must avenge the game of August 11 as we all know how that one ended…”

Juventus entertain Napoli on Saturday 20 October once Serie A resumes after the international break.
