Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci was pleased with their approach to Real Madrid and expects “a real Final” against Napoli on Sunday.
The Bianconeri were held to a 2-2 draw in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
“Juve had two gears: a fantastic first half and less good in the second,” wrote Bonucci on his official website.
“In my view in Europe it’s true that there are teams with an advantage like Real Madrid, but if they are faced without fear and in fact with real gall, then you can really hurt them.
“These sides have to be taken on blow by blow with ferocity and absolute belief. If that is the case, then something important and magical can be achieved with this Juve. I am certain of it.
“I say this because now we must keep thinking ourselves stronger and be more aware of our capabilities. If we crushed Real Madrid in the first half, logic tells me we want to crush them in the second too!
“Having said that, now I await a real Final on Sunday between us and Napoli. It’s imperative for us to win, especially in our splendid stadium with our fantastic fans.
“I imagine it’ll be a great game. May the best side win.”
