Amauri is still pinching himself after scoring in Juventus' victory over Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

"I have always dreamed of scoring in the Champions League and now that has finally happened," Amauri told Juve's website.

"We saw the real Juventus on the pitch. We were smarting from everything that had been said against us and people exaggerated by saying that we had a dressing room rift and weren't a united group.

"Now we just hope that this victory is something to build on after a difficult time. We weren't in crisis and this is a response to all our critics."
