Conte confident Juventus won't crumble at Real Madrid

Juventus coach Antonio Conte has confidence in his players going into their Champions League tie with Real Madrid.

Juve have struggled for form so far this season.

But Conte says: "We will play our game at the Bernabeu against one of the most successful clubs in the world. Tomorrow we'll have to know how to suffer under pressure, but we must also be able to hurt them.

"We respect Real Madrid, but have no fear. We are stepping on to the field well aware of our capabilities. This is going to be very tough, but it is an opportunity for us to give our all and prove ourselves too.

"Tomorrow's result will mean nothing in terms of qualification, whether we win or lose, as there are still another three games to go. We have to prove we're up to the standard of this great football stage, not with words, but on the pitch.

"I tip my hat to Carlo Ancelotti for his extraordinary career. It was great to have him as my Coach at Juventus."
