MANAGER QUOTES

Antonio Conte: “We are facing a very strong side. We have hunger and the right level of calm to approach this game and the awareness we’ll play very differently to the first leg. The first leg confirmed what we already knew, which was that Bayern are a very strong side who play a very physical game. We confirmed they are among the favourites for the trophy.”

Jupp Heynckes: “We’ll take exactly the same approach as last Tuesday and obviously, we’ll try and win in Turin. We’ll stay true to our principles, and we understand the job we have to do. They’re one of the very top teams, they’ll try and achieve the impossible. I’m expecting a fantastic atmosphere. We should enjoy playing there. It’ll be a motivating factor for both teams.”
