Andrea Pirlo hailed Juventus' self-belief after their thumping Champions League win over Chelsea on Tuesday.

Juve thrashed the Blues 3-0.

"That was a great evening and we needed a victory like that to take a step towards qualification, even if we know that the last game with Shakhtar will be decisive," Pirlo told the official Juventus website.

"Beating the reigning European Champions gave us further belief in our own strength. We have always believed, but now we do even more."
