We fear no one - Morata

Dortmund - Goal-scorer Alvaro Morata insists Juventus fear no-one in the draw for the Champions League's quarter-finals after their emphatic 3-0 win at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

Carlos Tevez scored twice as Juventus sealed a 5-1 win on aggregate in the last 16 tie as he and Morata, who had each scored in the 2-1 first-leg win, again did the damage in Dortmund.

Just as he had done in Turin, Tevez gave his side an early lead with a breath-taking strike to catch out the Dortmund defence.

After setting up Morata for a tap-in on 70 minutes, Tevez added his second and Juve's third nine minutes later when he fired home Arturo Vidal's pass.

The result means Italian league leaders Juventus join Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, AS Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain, Porto and Real Madrid in Friday's last eight draw.

"There are no easy teams. But if we play like we did tonight we've no reason to fear anyone," said Morata.

"It was a really impressive display. We defended when we needed to and struck when we had the chance to attack.

"It was a difficult game but the entire team tackled it in an incredible manner."

Morata singled out Tevez for praise after the 31-year-old beat Dortmund's off-side trap to give the Spaniard a simple tap-in to put the Old Lady in the last eight.

"It's a dream to play with Tevez. When I was a youngster I watched him on the TV and now he sets me up to score goals," beamed Morata.

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri was delighted with this side's display over the two legs.

"The most important thing for me tonight is the confidence we have shown," said Allegri.

"We delivered a big technical and physical performance, we have been doing our work in Italy since the start of the season, but now we are doing it on the European stage.

"We put in two great matches against Dortmund and we deserve to go through.

"It doesn't matter who we now meet at this level whether its Barcelona, Munich or PSG."
