Cape Town - Monaco
defender Djibril Sidibe insists they are not intimidated by the second
leg of their Champions League semi-final tie against Juventus.
The Ligue 1 outfit were beaten 2-0 at home by the Bianconeri in the
first leg, but Sidibe has made it clear that his teammates remain
determined to give the Serie A giants a run for their money in Turin.
The Juventus Stadium will be packed for the crucial European clash,
but Sidibe is looking forward to the challenge after working hard to get
into the last four.
“If we are here, it’s because we believe in ourselves and our chances
of qualification,” said the full-back, according to Football Italia.
“We lost the first round, but will do everything possible to fight
this out to the end. We were disappointed after the first leg and must
prove that we’re not finished. We will try to prove our worth.
“This is a competition we care about and we’ve got to try.”
He added: “We played in Dortmund, so certainly don’t fear the
Juventus Stadium atmosphere. Everyone aspires to play in a packed
stadium and we’re very happy to be here."
The action gets underway at 20:45.
