Juventus midfielder Alberto Aquilani says his clash with Lazio is nothing special for him this weekend.

The former AS Roma star joined Juventus on loan this summer after a disappointing first year at Anfield with Liverpool.

"The match against Lazio isn't a derby, no," he said. "I play for Juve and now my derby is against Torino.

"Sure if we go and bring up the past again, this is a different game with respect to the others.

"Reja's side are certainly a surprise, but not a flash in the pan. I am convinced that they can cause a lot of bother until the end of the season.

"We got an important win in Catania. It shows that we are alive and that we can fight for the Scudetto."
