The Italians hold a slight advantage after a 2-1 win in Turin, but the tie still hangs in the balance.
“If we play as Borussia Dortmund should, then it’s tough for any team to beat us” he told Ruhr Nachrichten.
“I am not saying we are the best, but it is difficult for any side to win against us. We saw against Juve in the first leg that we played well, despite two injuries in the first half.”
“We now have to play on our home turf and everyone knows we are very strong here. We must remain concentrated from start to finish and give 200 per cent to win this game.”
“I think all the lads are warriors and we must make it a spectacular night for our fans too, as this year we’ve disappointed them.”
The two sides play the second leg next Wednesday.
