Contento: 'We'll knock out Juve'

Bayern Munich defender Diego Contento insisted his side has what it takes to defeat Juventus in the Champions League after beating Hamburg 9-2.

The Bundesliga leaders face the Serie A champions in the quarter-finals and the first leg is in Germany on Tuesday.

 The German-born Italian full-back has claimed that his team will progress to the last four.

“Juventus are a great team with great players,” he told Eurosport. “It is no coincidence that they are top of Serie A.

“It will be a difficult game for us, but I am sure we will have the better of the games and eliminate them.”

Bayern Munich have not yet clinched the Bundesliga title despite thumping Hamburg 9-2 on Saturday.

They did not field a full-strength side, as Claudio Pizarro scored four goals, and Bayern need only two points from the last seven rounds to become champions.
