Rome, April 3 - Coach Antonio Conte has admitted
Juventus still have a long way to go to regain their position
among European soccer's elite after Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at
Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final first leg.
"We were facing a great team, there's nothing new there,
one of the favourites to lift the trophy," said Conte, whose
side were comprehensively outplayed in Bavaria and were perhaps
lucky not to lose by more.
"Physically they're very strong, they were tough in the
tackle and fired up after losing last year's final (to Chelsea
in Munich).
"Games like this can only help us grow and realise that we
still have some way to go before we're on a par with Europe's
top sides.
"Bayern spent 48 million euros just on (Spanish midfielder
Javi) Martinez last summer. That's unthinkable for us".
Nevertheless, Conte has not abandoned all hope of seeing
the Italian champions reverse the result to reach the last four.
"Football is full of surprises and we won't lie down till
it's over," said the coach, whose side need to win next week's
second leg in Turin win by three goals.
