Juventus boss Conte delighted to be in Europa League semis

Juventus coach Antonio Conte is delighted to be in the Europa League semifinals after victory over Lyon.

Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio struck in the 2-0 win.

The other semi-finalists are Benfica, Sevilla and Valencia, who crushed Basel 5-0 in extra time.

"I think that when we reach these levels, we meet excellent teams who are well organised," Conte told Mediaset.

"It's not that just because we are called Juventus we are greeted by a red carpet ushering us through to certain victory.

"Anyone who thinks everything is easy just because we are Juventus is deeply wrong. There is always a journey to go through.

"This season, even though the competition is different, we are still having an important journey in Europe. Juventus hadn't reached this phase in Europe for 10 years."
