Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini happy with Empoli points

Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini was pleased with victory over Empoli on Saturday.

The next few weeks will be key in determining whether Juve's season is a success.

Chiellini told TuttoJuve: "It was an important weekend, we managed to continue our consistency. Winning against the so-called smaller teams is hard, especially after a Champions League game in which we expended a lot.

"We did very well to continue to keep our order, to take advantage of our qualities and take home three key points.

"The coming matches, especially with Udinese and Sampdoria away from home, will be massively decisive for us. Even more so than matches against Napoli, Milan and Roma.

"We know it is a crucial period. Between the League, Champions League and the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-final, from now until 20 March when we have the international break, we have a very important period in our season.

"We are competing in all competitions and it would be a shame not to progress in each of them."
