Juventus ace Andrea Pirlo is ready to face former club AC Milan this weekend.

The midfielder spent 10 years at San Siro, but scored his first goal in a Juventus jersey during last night's 3-1 win over Catania.

"I am happy and the goal was important, as we were trailing at the time. We always put in strong performances against the smaller clubs, but lately were unable to score."

Next weekend there is a head-to-head for the Scudetto against Pirlo's former teammates.

"The return to San Siro will be exciting, but I won't be emotional after that, as the game is too important. I don't think we are the favourites for this match."
