Conte: Juventus don't fear Bayern

Juventus manager Antonio Conte is confident his players have "no fear" of the Champions League challenge posed by Bayern Munich after disposing of Inter Milan 2-1 in Serie A.

Conte's men remain nine points clear of the field after goals from Fabio Quagliarella and Alessandro Matri secured the three points at the San Siro.

But, more importantly in Conte's mind, the victory gave his squad the belief they can stop the Munich juggernaut from rolling to a second successive Champions League final.

"In Italy, we're on the right road [to success], but now we have to show what we're made of in Europe," Conte told AFP,/i>.

"We're going to Munich with no fear and a lot of confidence. We'll be up against a strong Bayern side, but we believe in this dream."

However, Juventus head to Munich on Tuesday suffering from a lack of striking options. The Turin giants could be without the services of Sebastian Giovinco, while Mirko Vucinic is still recovering from illness.

That could mean successive games for the potent Quagliarella and Matri partnership, a line-up the 28-year-old Matri would relish.

"It's up to the coach, of course, but it goes without saying I'm ready to play against Bayern," said the Italian. "It seems I always score when I'm playing alongside Quagliarella, as we get along well.

"Europe remains a dream for us. Bayern have some great individual players, and we know how they play."

Meanwhile, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has told Sky Italia he believes there is no clear favourite, saying: "It's the quarter-finals and, with a team like Juve, it's a difficult challenge. It's wide open. It's like the final's come early."
