MILAN, March 18 (Xinhua) -- Juventus midfielder Claudio Marchisio said on Monday that his side harbor no fear for their Champions League opponents Bayern Munich.
The Old Lady were paired with the German giants in Friday's draw and Marchisio has admitted that they've been handed a tie against one of the favourites to lift the trophy.
"They're the strongest team in Europe alongside Barcelona and Real Madrid," he stated. "However, we're experiencing the Champions League campaign with great joy."
The Turin giants began their European Cup campaign with the hand brake on after collecting three consecutive draws.
However, they've won every game since and topped a group containing Shakhtar Donetsk and holders Chelsea.
"We won our group convincingly and we will give Bayern as good as we get," the 27-year-old Italian international added.
"We know about the strengths of Bayern Munich, but we'll go to Germany without fear," he said.
