Carlos Tevez Confident Juventus Can Beat Anyone In Champions League
Carlos Tevez is confident Juventus can beat any team in the world and win this season’s Champions League.
The forward has compared the Manchester United side he was part of that won the Champions League in 2008 and the Bianconeri’s current squad
The Bianconeri face Monaco in the first leg of their quarter-final tie on Tuesday after beating Borussia Dortmund 5-1 on aggregate in the last eight.
However, Massimiliano Allegri’s side suffered a shock defeat to Serie A whipping boys Parma on Saturday, though Tevez is confident the loss was nothing more than a minor blip.
“Parma was an accident,” he told La Repubblica.
“Dortmund has shown that we can go far. It only depends on us. Juventus can beat anyone and we’ve shown that. Nobody is out of our reach.”
Tevez won the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008, scoring his side’s first penalty in the 6-5 shootout victory over Chelsea.

The Argentina international was part of a squad featuring a host of star names but says his Juventus team are very different in their make up.
He continued: “That was a different situation. There were some amazing examples: Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand, Paul Scholes.
“I think that now there is a team instead. We are very hard to beat.”
The Argentine believes Juve can take heart from Atletico Madrid’s run to the final last year, but is hoping for a better ending than Diego Simeone’s side’s 4-1 extra-time loss to Real Madrid.
“We can be like Atletico but with a better ending,” added the 31-year-old
