Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has paid tribute to Juventus over their success under Antonio Conte.

Wenger, writing in his Eurosport column, highlighted the Bianconeri's achievement in topping a Champions League group containing Shakhtar Donetsk and Chelsea.

"Let's not forget Juventus, who eventually sealed their qualification on the final day," the Frenchman said.

"That they did so in such a fashion means something - it's the sign of the great team in an exceptional state of mind. I believe Juve have been reborn.

"Now we are into the knock-out phase of the competition - with direct elimination - I think Juventus can go far because they are capable of springing a surprise."
