Gianluigi Buffon is confident Juventus can beat Liverpool in the Champions League.Gianluigi Buffon is confident Juventus can dump Liverpool out of the UEFA Champions League.
Juventus entertain The Reds in Wednesday's second leg, having lost the first meeting 2-1 at Anfield last week.
But Juve goalkeeper Buffon does not feel the Italian giants are at a disadvantage to go into the game with a deficit to make up.
Instead, Buffon is expecting to put Liverpool to the sword in the same manner Juve vanquished Real Madrid in the last round of the Champions League.
"We KO'd Real Madrid in the last round," commented Buffon.
"We can knock out Liverpool, too.
"We'll go for many goals to avoid any possible scares."
Meanwhile, Liverpool striker Milan Baros has brushed off accusations from Juve defender Paolo Montero that he is a diver.
Montero hit Baros with that claim after last week's first leg but the Czech Republic international refused to be drawn into a war of words.
Baros said: "I really don't take those comments too seriously.
"It could well be just a psychological war.
"I will be fully focused on my job."
