Juventus are beatable – Hernanes

The 29-year-old feels the Nerazzurri can start the year with a positive result against the Bianconeri and mount a challenge for third place

Hernanes says Juventus are “beatable” and is confident Inter can begin 2015 by shocking the Serie A champions on Tuesday.

The Bianconeri are top of Italian top flight, but were stunned by Napoli in the Italian Super Cup as they lost 6-5 on penalties after the game ended 2-2 in their final match before the winter break.

Inter are well off the pace in 11th spot in Serie A but Hernanes, who recently returned from an injury lay-off, is confident of starting the New Year with a victory over Massimiliano Allegri’s men.

“We must start well, then we’ll see what happens. I do not do predictions, but I feel it will go well for us,” Hernanes said to La Gazzetta.

“We will have to be aggressive, but also ordered and polished. Inter are close to a turning point.

“You can talk about different statistics of the latest games, including possession, but we have to be more consistent in a single match – often carelessness costs us dearly.

“Yes [Juve are beatable], it showed against Genoa. But it remains very tough as they have since found additional confidence and security by reaching the next round of the Champions League.

“When I was at Sao Paulo we closed a gap of 11 points in the second round of fixtures and won the title. We must always believe. If we correct the details on which we are working, we will arrive at the top.”
