Quagliarella hails strength of Juventus midfield

Juventus striker Fabio Quagliarella insists they're a match for Barcelona.

Quagliarella rates Juve's midfield as good as any in Europe.

"I said last year Paul Pogba was a phenomenon at his age, as he has everything. He's very talented, humble and has all the right characteristics to make his mark.

"We have one of the strongest midfields in Europe and in my view we don't have anything to envy Barcelona. The problem here is that we are considered to be 'in crisis' with a draw even if we're playing well.

"We changed system in the Champions League, as the team is mature enough to perform the tactical variations the Coach asks for. We're more aware of our strength than last year and the season before that. Some incidents helped us to realise Juve are still there and fighting.

"Antonio Conte is always hammering us, it's amazing how he has remained the same over three years. As time went on, Conte also recognised we are an extraordinary group."
