Bayern Munich host Juventus in the Champions League this week and the German giants will be looking to progress on to the next round of the competition after an impressive away performance in Italy earlier.

The first leg in Italy ended 2-2 and Bayern will be delighted with the vital away goals.

Guardiola’s men are having a very good season and despite some blips along the way, they are all set to retain the Bundesliga again this season.

However, the Spaniard will be desperate to end his Bayern reign with the Champions League and this is his last chance. Guardiola will join City in the summer and will want to leave a lasting legacy at the Allianz Arena.


Meanwhile, the away side are in supreme form as well. Juventus are one of the most in-form sides in Europe right now.

The Italians made it to the finals of the Champions League last season and will want to go all way this time.

New signing Paulo Dybala is in exceptional form right now and is perhaps the best player of his age in Europe right now. With the likes of Pogba and Morata supporting him, the Italian champions have every chance of coming away with a win from Germany.
