Cape Town - Former
Juventus striker Gianluca Vialli believes it is the club's turn
to win the Champions League because 'football karma' is on their side.
The Serie A champions have lost four Champions League finals.
were defeated by Borussia Dortmund in 1997, Real Madrid in 1998, AC
Milan in 2003, and Barcelona in 2015.
However, on the domestic front Juve have claimed five consecutive
Serie A titles, and Vialli believes they now deserve to claim the
Champions League as well.
Juve take a 3-0 lead into the second leg of their quarter-final tie with Barcelona, whom they face in Spain on Wednesday.
"Juve are instead in a time of stability and effectiveness, and they seem to have fun when they play," Vialli told the French publication Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I believe in football karma and I think after years of Italian
domination, and several finals lost by virtue of superior force in
Europe that I mentioned before, this team has earned the statement, the
victory. As Mourinho's Inter earned it."
Kick-off is at 20:45 on Wednesday.
