The European champions take will take on the Scudetto holders this Wednesday and the England ace respects the Old Lady.
“Every year is harder and harder,” he said. “Real Madrid and Barcelona are stronger than ever, but we have to keep focused and do well since it is the first match of the group.
“We know that the match against Juventus won't be easy. They are a very strong team that is part of football's history.
“They won the last Serie A unbeaten, they have invested a lot and in the right way, so they are a hard nut to crack for us.”
