Juventus striker Alessandro Matri says he's in Turin to play in the Champions League.

Matri, 27, joined the Old Lady on loan from Cagliari before signing for the Bianconeri outright in the summer.

"I'd love to play in the Champions League," said the former Lumezzane man. "I am the age that I am and yet I still haven't played a single game in that competition.

"I want Juve to finish in the top three this season so that I can get the chance to play in the tournament next year."
