Juventus defender Bonucci: We're now in business end of the season

Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci says they're now entering the business end of the season.

For Juve, the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 kicks off in Lyon on Wednesday evening.

“This is another stage of the season that begins now, we are ready to experience it with great enthusiasm and the desire to go all the way in every tournament," said Bonucci.

“I have good memories of this city, both when wearing the Juventus jersey and playing for the Nazionale. It's the right place for us to prove once again that when the crunch moment comes, Juve are there.

“We are top of the table, in the Coppa Italia semi-finals and the Champions League Round of 16, qualifying from the group stage with two games to spare for the first time ever, so I don't know what people expected if this is disappointing."
