Marchisio: No Bayern fear

Claudio Marchisio is well aware of Bayern Munich’s strength, but he maintains his Juventus side will have no fear in the Champions League last eight.

The Old Lady were paired with the German giants in Friday’s draw and Marchisio has admitted that they’ve been handed a tie against one of the favourites to lift the trophy.

“They’re the strongest team in Europe alongside Barcelona and Real Madrid,” he stated. “However, we’re experiencing the Champions League campaign with great joy.”

The Turin giants began their European Cup campaign with the handbrake on after collecting three consecutive draws.

However, they’ve won every game since and topped a group containing Shakhtar Donetsk and holders Chelsea.

“We won our group convincingly and we will give Bayern as good as we get,” the 27-year-old Italian international added.

“We know about the strengths of Bayern Munich, but we’ll go to Germany without fear.”
