Madrid, Jan 3 (IANS) Germany midfielder Sami Khedira believes his club Juventus can upset German football giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League. Khedira will be travelling to his homeland for the Round of 16 clashes next month.
“These are in or out games and we picked the toughest team in the draw, this is a competition we play to win, so it doesn’t matter who we face. We need to be able to beat anyone,” Khedira was quoted as saying by football-italia.net.
“Bayern are among the best in the world, but we are strong too, even if we needed a little time to get into gear. I am convinced Bayern know we’ll cause them trouble. It’ll be two fantastic nights of football.” The 28-year-old said he is happy playing for the Italian heavy weights and added he has recovered from his fitness problems. “I am very happy in Turin and settled in right away, despite some fitness problems. Now I am finally in good shape and I am enjoying my football,” he said. Khedira concluded by saying that he thinks Germany won’t be able to win the Euro Cup this year. “We must be honest, in our current condition we cannot win Euro 2016. The performances of the last few months have not been good enough.”
