      The Spaniard believes Juventus have every reason to fancy their chances of further progress in this year’s Champions League: “We represent a very tough prospect for every opponent and are capable of winning against anyone”

      Fernando Llorente says Juventus should be confident of their chances of further Champions League progression regardless of who emerges from the hat in Monday lunchtime’s draw.

      Speaking to the media after tonight’s goalless draw with Atletico, the 29-year-old said: “It makes no difference to us who we face in the next round. We represent a very tough prospect for every opponent and are capable of winning against anyone.”

      The forward experienced a challenging night up against the brittle defensive pairing of Diego Godin and Gimenez, but never once shirked from his responsibilities as he battled tirelessly to find a way through.

      “The Atletico centre-backs are good players and it’s difficult to shake them off. When Tevez drops off in search of the ball I’m left a little bit more isolated, but that doesn’t cause me concern.”

      Concluding by revealing his delight at the final outcome, he added: “I’m happy. It’s important to be a starter for Juventus and the Champions League is every player’s dream. To achieve this I aim to give everything I can in every game, and show that I can be of assistance to the team.”
