Giaccherini talks up Juventus' chances

Juventus midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini says the club have not given up hope of defeating Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The Italian champions will have to overcome a 2-0 deficit after a first-leg defeat in Munich, but, speaking after his side's 2-1 Serie A win over Pescara on Saturday, Giaccherini said the club will not be going down without a fight.

"Yes we need the best Juventus on Wednesday because we will be facing one of the best teams in the world in Bayern Munich," he said.

"They've already proved in the first leg how great they are and they have already won their league this season. We will try and give all that we have and hopefully we will watch the best Juventus."

And Giaccherini was pleased with his side's display against Pescara.

"I think that Juventus played a great match today - we created a lot of chances, Pescara never attacked in the first half and they scored a goal with their only shot at goal in the second half," he said.

"Our only problem was scoring a goal and we finally managed at the 65th minute of play, after that the game became much easier."

Two goals from Mirko Vucinic sealed the victory and the striker was delighted with the win.

"The three points were definitely important for us and we're all happy we managed to gain them," the Montenegrin said.

"The most important thing tonight was to win, not the performance."
