Felipe Melo insists crisis club Juventus are a match for Inter Milan.

The Bianconeri are floundering in joint fifth place and crashed out of both the Champions League and Coppa Italia.

"It is wrong to say that Inter are stronger than Juventus," Melo told Brazilian site globoesporte.com.

"We beat them in Turin before Christmas and the Coppa Italia quarter-final was also in the balance, so we could've won that too.

"The truth is that we are a team under construction and were handed to an inexperienced Coach, whereas Inter have been together for longer and have a great tactician on the bench."
