Federico Bernardeschi believes his side will be ready for Lazio when the two sides meet on Saturday.
“It’ll be wonderful to see these great sides face off,” Bernardeschi said to JTV.
“This will certainly be an important round and we are well aware that Lazio are strong, have big objectives and are coming off a great season.
“They’ve started well this term too, so it’s going to be a real battle, but we are ready.”
Lazio got the better of Juve in August when the sides met for the Supercoppa Italiana.
“The Coach is right to say much of our qualification campaign goes through the meetings with the Portuguese side. It’ll be an enjoyable challenge, besides which the Champions League is always an extraordinary occasion, starting from the moment you hear the anthem…”
Bernardeschi capped his first Juventus start with a goal and an assist in a 2-2 tie with Atalanta.
“I have a long way to go and a lot of experience to attain, but I am happy, because every day I feel better.
“I love to play football and that remains regardless of the position I am playing in. I live the game moment by moment and do what feels right.”
