Tevez surprised Juventus in Champions League semis

Juventus striker Carlos Tevez is surprised to be in the Champions League semifinals.

Juve will meet Real Madrid in the first-leg tonight.

"I didn't expect a semi-final," Tevez admitted.

"I expected to win the League, and we wanted to fight as much as possible for the Champions League.

"[Coach Max] Allegri, [President Andrea] Agnelli and the entire hierarchy have demonstrated that they are all very serious and want to win the Champions League together.

"I think it will be a very difficult semi-final, I believe it's wide-open, the two games will be very hard-fought and open.

"I don't think it's a semi-final in which there are favourites, whoever makes fewer mistakes will win the game."
