Mirko Vucinic has warned Chelsea that Juventus are aiming for a win at Stamford Bridge in their Champions League clash on Wednesday.
The Italian giants will take on the reigning European champions in their opening game in Group E This is the first time that Juventus will play in Europe's premier club competition since their return to Serie A in 2007, and Vucinic is determined to kick things off with a victory in London.
"Stamford Bridge is not the best place for us to open the group but there exists no fear," he said in the Daily Star.
"We are the champions of Italy and that gives us a prestige we need to exploit. This is our return to the Champions League and therefore very special. "Chelsea are European champions and deserve our respect, but we go to London without fear and with a lot of confidence.
"This is not the same Chelsea as last season because in the last few weeks they have failed in several matches and that increases our chances for Wednesday.
"Will we play for a draw? Never! Our challenge is to win all three points. We are the best team in Italy and it's a matter of pride for the players."
