Vidal: Crushing Chelsea was ´perfect´

21 November 2012 14:35

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal said his side's 3-0 Champions League victory over Chelsea was 'the perfect night'.

Goals from Fabio Quagliarella, Vidal and Sebastian Giovinco helped Juve to a vital win and to second place in Group E, much to the delight of the Chile international.

"It was the perfect night, we played an incredible match against a great side like Chelsea and now we are very happy. We just have to keep on like this until the end," Vidal told the official UEFA website.

"We were eager to win this game. It was so important so that we could continue to grow as a team. It's not over yet – there is another game – but if we play as well as we did tonight it will be an interesting game for us against Shakhtar."

The 25-year-old also hailed the influence of their fans who willed them over the line at Juventus Stadium.

"When our fans support us like they did tonight our hearts become bigger on the pitch. It's so important to have this kind of support from our fans in this stadium," Vidal said.

Juve resume Serie A action on Sunday when they travel to AC Milan.
