Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini is convinced of UEFA Cup progress after their 4-0 victory over Artmedia Bratislava.

"It was an important night because we have been waiting two years for this moment and you could say we have sealed the tie tonight," said Chiellini.

"We are still not 100 per cent fit, but the team is getting there and put in an excellent performance with four goals."

Artmedia Bratislava did create a few chances and play their best football on home turf, but the Juve star is not concerned.

"We must play them with the same grit we showed tonight, then there shouldn't be any problems."
