Fernando Llorente remains confident that Juventus can qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League after Tuesday's 2-2 draw at home against Real Madrid. The Serie A champions currently sit fourth in Group B with just three points from four games, but Llorente - who scored the equaliser after Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale had cancelled out Arturo Vidal's opener for the Bianconeri - thinks they can still progress if they win their remaining two matches. "The group is still very open and if we win the next two games, I think we will qualify," the 28-year-old told the official Uefa website. "We managed to earn a very important point especially considering that Galatasaray lost in Copenhagen. "I think we have played a very good game against Madrid. We saw a strong Juve, a Juve side fully aware of what was at stake. "It wasn't easy but the team worked hard and did well." Juventus resume domestic action on Sunday when they host Napoli.
