However, the Serie A leaders will have to overcome a 2-0 deficit to keep their European dreams alive.

"We believe, because we are Juventus," the defender told Sky Sports. "It is still wide open, and Wednesday we will give 110 percent out on the field.

"We must use the full 90 minutes. There is always time to make goals."

And goals are a commodity the Turin giants are in desperate need of - and in desperate need to defend against.

Bayern stunned the visiting Italians within the space of a minute in the first-leg last week, before capping off a dominant performance with a second goal in the second half.

However, Bonucci is confident the mistakes of the first-tie will not be repeated as he and his team-mates are prepared to fight for a place in the last-four.

"Certainly we can continue our dream," he said.

"I think we have all the qualities to make life difficult for a strong team like Bayern, despite a bad first leg."
