Old Lady fears no one, says Morata
DREAM TEAM: Juve's Morata, who scored once against Dortmund on Wednesday, says it has been a dream to play with Tevez, who scored twice in the match.

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

Carlos Tevez scored twice as Juve 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.

The result means Italian league leaders Juventus join Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, AS Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), Porto and Real Madrid in today'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 of Wednesday's match.

"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 offside 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 his 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 it's Barcelona, Munich or PSG."
