The Turin giants must overcome a 1-0 disadvantage from the first leg in Spain, and Del Piero is aware of the size of the task.
"This is the most important match of the season so far," acknowledged Del Piero.
"We will have to perform at our best if we want to get through to the quarter finals.
"The only way we can progress is if we play a perfect match, but it will not be easy when you consider the quality of the opposition."
Juventus president Franzo Grande Stevens is also hopeful the Bianconeri can overturn the deficit.
