Bayern Munich striker Mario Mandzukic says his teammates are confident they can exorcise the demons of last season by winning the Champions League.
Bayern were favourites to beat Chelsea in last season’s decider at their home ground of Allianz Arena, but were upset on penalties.
The Bavarians beat Juventus 2-0 in the second leg of their quarter-final tie on Wednesday after winning the home leg 2-0, and Mandzukic has his sights set on an historic treble.
“If you want to win, then you’ve got to play against the best so I don’t mind who we get in the semi-finals. If we play as well as this – and we have such good players – then we know we can do it,” Mandzukic told UEFA.com.
“It’s a dream for me to come so far in my first season and we can win everything. It’s good that we’ve already wrapped up the Bundesliga so the coach can rest a few players.
“We’re going for everything, why not? We’ve shown that we have the quality and so we want to win everything.”
Mandzukic has been a key figure for Bayern this term, netting 20 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions.
