Leonardo Bonucci believes Juventus can win a treble of Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League titles, but insists it is their strong mindset that sets them apart from the competition.
“Achieving something like that over 180 minutes against Barcelona, without ever really being under a lot of pressure from one of the two-three best teams in the world, that means Juve can now target the Champions League,” Bonucci told Sky Italia.
“This is a special moment and you are at the limit. All you need is to get the approach to one game wrong and you have compromised everything that was done before. There are four sides left in the Champions League, who have proved on the pitch they are the best in Europe. Now it’s up to us to prove we are hungry enough to go all the way.”
“We have a very good chance of reaching the Final in Cardiff and raising this trophy to the sky. Now it’s all about the mentality, as we must keep our feet on the ground without letting ourselves get swept up by excessive enthusiasm.
“We are in the running on all three fronts and they are within reach, so now it’s all in the mind. We must maintain our concentration for a month and a half to go all the way.
“Over the years this squad has proved it is compact and knows what it takes to achieve victory.”
