Samuel Umtiti: Juventus are good enough to beat anyone
The Barça defender gives his thoughts on the blaugranes' opponents in the Champions League quarter-final in an interview with UEFA's official media
Samuel Umtiti is no stranger to facing Juventus as he was part of the Olympique Lyonnais team that took on the Italians in the 2013/14 UEFA Europa League. Ahead of his first meeting with ‘La Vecchia Signora’ as a Barça player, the French defender spoke of the Champions League quarter-final tie and his first season as a blaugrana in an interview with UEFA’s official media. “We will have to play really well as they have an excellent defence. I really like Bonucci, Chiellini and Barzagli,” explained the French international, showing his admiration for his Juventus counterparts.
“They’re a team, even though they have two or three individuals who really stand out. I think they’re strong as a team and they can beat almost anyone. It’s going to be a really big game,” concluded Umtiti.
