Bayern Munich vs. Juventus predicted lineups and team news

bayern-juventus

Bayern Munich hold a slight advantage coming into this match after they picked up a 2-2 draw at the Juventus Stadium in the first leg.

Pep Guardiola’s men raced to a two goal lead via Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben but Juventus rallied to score two quick-fire goals, which gave them some hope ahead of Wednesday’s decider.

The Bavarians had the ideal preparation for this game by trashing Werder Bremen 5-0 at the weekend with Muller, Thiago Alcantara and Robert Lewandowski amongst the goals to go five points clear ahead of Borussia Dortmund with eight games to go.

Juventus are also in great form with nine wins in the last ten league matches to go three points clear at the top of the table but they are winless in five Champions League ties against Bayern Munich (D2 L3).

To advance to the next round, Juventus will need an outright win or a high-scoring draw from 3-3 and above while Bayern only need a goalless or 1-1 draw to qualify. A 2-2 draw after 90 minutes will send the game into extra time.

Team news

Both sides have most of their key players available so we can expect strong lineups come Wednesday. The visitors have only Martin Caceres out of this match while Bayern Munich are without Holger Badstuber and Javi Martinez. Center-back Jerome Boateng is not expected to make an appearance despite returning to training last week.
