Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci believes that his team have what it takes to get into the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Bianconeri managed to top their UCL group stage this season, finishing ahead of the defending champion, Chelsea. They will be battling for a place in the quarter-finals against the Spanish side, Villarreal.
Although the match will only start next February, Juve’s defender, Bonucci is confident that his side can make it through. The Italian international believes that his side deserved to reach the quarter-finals of that competition.
“Juventus deserve to be in the quarter-finals in Europe, so we have to move forward,” Bonucci said in an interview during Globe Soccer Award 2021(via Football Italia).
It’s a bold statement from the center-back considering Juve failed to make it that far in their previous two consecutive seasons.
Juve went out in the last 16 against Lyon in the 2019-2020 season and suffered a similar fate last season against Porto.
