Champions League within Juve grasp, says Bonucci

7 March 2013 13:28

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci believes his side has what it takes to win the Champions League after getting past Celtic.

The Serie A title holders recorded a 5-0 win on aggregate over the Scottish champions to book their quarter-final spot, 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," Bonucci said.

"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 Juventus must redirect their attentions to retaining the Scudetto for the time being.

"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."
