Alessandro Matri admits that he is pleased with Juventus's performance in the 2-1 win over Chievo this afternoon.

Juventus forward Alessandro Matri admitted that he was surprised by the quality of his goal, but spoke of his delight with his side's response.

Matri played a key role in Juve's crucial 2-1 victory over Chievo this afternoon, scoring a good opening goal.

The 28-year-old said that the game was a "great response" to Napoli, who had drawn level on points with them with a 2-0 win over Catania on Saturday night.

Speaking about his goal, Matri said: "It felt like a great goal. Strange though, because normally when I strike it well, I don't score.

"But today it went well and we provided a great response to Napoli's win. These are the games that win you championships, not the direct encounters."

Juventus top the table with a three-point lead over their nearest rivals Napoli.
