Buffon: Morale is high at Juventus

The veteran goalkeeper has stressed that the reigning Italian champions are high on confidence as the new season approaches
Gianluigi Buffon is positive about Juventus' chances ahead of the start of the 2012-13 campaign.

The Turin giants won the Serie A title last term without losing a single game, while making it to the final of the Coppa Italia as well, and got the new term off to a great start by winning the Supercoppa Italiana.

And the veteran goalkeeper is optimistic about the rest of the season, despite coach Antonio Conte receiving a 10-month ban for failing to report match-fixing activities.

"It is a different environment with respect to last year. There is more positivity and belief around the place," the Italy international stated to the official Juventus website.

The goalkeeper then went on to discuss his side's Champions League ambitions, and stressed they will employ a similar approach to what helped them to Serie A glory last term.

"As far as the Champions League is concerned, we will face it with the same approach shown in the league just a few months ago."

Juve last featured in the Champions League in 2009-10, when they failed to get out of the group stage.
