Iuliano: 'Juve can upset Bayern'

Juventus may not have the quality of Bayern Munich, but Mark Iuliano thinks they still have a chance of Champions League progress.

The two sides will face each other in Germany on Tuesday in the first leg of their quarter-final encounter.

Bayern will start the tie as favourites, but Iuliano, signed by then-European champions Juventus in 1996, is backing his former club.

“The last eight of the European Cup is a round that is always very difficult to get through,” the now 40-year-old commented.

“There are quality sides left in the competition, but hunger and character can make more of a difference than a champion in your team.”
