thumbnail Hello,

The defender is confident that the Bianconeri can spring a surprise in Europe, and has urged them to turn their focus to Serie A again

Leonardo Bonucci believes that Juventus have what it takes to win the Champions League this term after eliminating Celtic in the round of 16.

The Serie A champions recorded a 5-0 win on aggregate over the Scottish champions to book their ticket for the quarter-finals, and Bonucci is optimistic about his side's chances at European glory.

"The dream continues. Anything’s possible when you get to this stage, you just need a bit of luck to go all the way. There’s little difference between the sides, they’re all very strong," the defender told reporters.

"Celtic looked to get back into the tie with long balls for [Georgios] Samaras, but we handled them well and did well to pounce. And then there’s Gigi [Buffon], who also put in a great performance tonight."

Bonucci then turned his attention to the title race in Serie A, and stressed that Juventus must remain focused.

"Catania are next up and we can’t allow ourselves to be distracted. We’ve got a six-point lead in the league, but last year we were seven behind and then managed to win the Scudetto.

"So we’ll go on with a humble and focused approach, against a team who are enjoying a great season."
