Bonucci confident Juventus can overcome Bayern

The Italian side's defender remains confident in his team’s ability to reach the semi-finals, despite the 0-2 first leg loss at the Allianz Arena
Leonardo Bonucci says Juventus can overcome Bayern Munich in the second leg of their Champions League quarter final tie despite their first-leg deficit.

Despite being 2-0 down after the first game, Bonucci believes his side have the quality to beat Bayern in Turin and advance to the semi-final stage.

“We believe, because we are Juventus,” the defender told Sky Sports. “It is still wide open, and Wednesday we will give 110 percent out on the field.

“We must use the full 90 minutes. There is always time to make goals.”

The visitors have suffered just one defeat from four games on the road this year in the competition but Bonucci believes the Bianconeri can still progress.

“Certainly we can continue our dream,” he added. “I think we have all the qualities to make life difficult for a strong team like Bayern, despite a bad first leg.”

The Italian defender also addressed comments made by Franz Beckenbauer directed towards Gigi Buffon after the first leg.

“We have respect for Beckenbauer, but I am sure that his statements will motivate Gigi and the whole team,” he said.
