Nobody wants to face Juve now - Bonucci

Nobody wants to face Juve now - Bonucci

Leonardo Bonucci believes no team will want to face Juventus in the Champions League semi-finals after they knocked out Barcelona on Wednesday.

Juve followed up last week’s comprehensive 3-0 beating in Turin by holding the Catalans to a goalless draw at the Nou Camp to reach the last four for a 12th time.

“It’s not about who we don’t want to face be­cause none of the other teams want to face us,” Bonucci told reporters after helping shut out Barca’s usually prolific attack for a second game running.

“Juventus provoke fear in everyone else and now our objective is to reach the final.

“We showed great unity and solidarity. We have belief in ourselves, because scoring three goals against Barcelona and keeping a clean sheet at the Nou Camp shows we are a great team. Now there are another two steps to go.

“This side deserves praise for how we ap­proach every game, whether we’re playing Barcelona or Pescara,” added the Italy defend­er, whose side have conceded two goals in 10 games in the Champions League this campaign.
