Marchisio 'dreams' of Champions League glory

The Bianconeri midfielder says nothing would make him more happier than winning Europe's most prestigious trophy
With Juventus now in the pot for the last eight of the Champions League, midfielder Claudio Marchisio has admitted it would be a "dream" if the Serie A giants could go all the way and win Europe's premier competition.

The Old Lady dispatched Celtic this week to book their place in the quarter-finals which will be drawn on March 15.

The Bianconeri last lifted the trophy in 1996 after beating Ajax on penalties, and Marchisio wants to bring Juventus their third European crown.

"The Champions League is a dream," the 27-year old told Sky Sport 24.

"I know that will not be easy but we are giving all in the league and in Europe.

"We're playing great this season despite some criticism. After the [quarter-final] draw we'll see."

Antonio Conte's men are top of Serie A boasting a six-point gap ahead of second-placed Napoli, but the Italy international is pleased with how the team have performed on the European front, too, having finished first in a group which had Chelsea, Shakhtar and Nordsjaelland.

He added: "In the Champions League we have overcome a difficult group against strong teams, we beat Celtic in the second round, a team that was difficult for Barcelona."
