Juventus boss Fabio Capello is confident of beating Werder Bremen on Tuesday evening.
The Bianconeri must recover from their 3-2 first leg defeat in Germany two weeks ago, but the coach believes his players can do it.
Ç£I'm hopeful as my team is in good shape both mentally and physically,Ç¥ said the former Milan and Roma boss.
"They have players with attacking characteristics and won't be able to forget that, especially as sides do look to score during away games in Europe.
Capello is expected to field his strongest side for the game, although striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a concern after breaking down during training.
Ç£Trezeguet and Ibrahimovic both trained today but Ibra had a slight problem at the end, we'll see how he is tomorrow," he added.
Should the Swede fail to make the starting line-up it is likely that Alex Del Piero will deputise, and he is quite confident that he can make an impact.
Ç£I've been in some good form for a while now, even if the whole team is doing well also,Ç¥ said the Juve skipper.
Ç£We are preparing for this game with the right amount of concentration and we know about what dangers we will be up against.Ç¥
