Munich - Fresh from their title-clinching success at Eintracht Frankfurt, 22-time Bundesliga winners FC Bayern Munich tackle Juventus in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final tie, looking to finish the job and book their place in the last four of the competition for the third time in four seasons.

Bayern were clinical and disciplined in their comfortable 2-0 first-leg win last Tuesday, but Jupp Heynckes and Co. know all too well that there's still much do be done in the Piedmontese capital on Wednesday night (kick-off 20:45 CEST).

"Top side"


"Be it in the Champions League or the Italian championship, Juventus have shown all season that they are without doubt a top side," said Bayern's head coach. "They will try to do the impossible. I'm expecting a fantastic atmosphere. That's going to be a great source of motivation for both sides."

Not that the Bavarian bruisers need any help in that department, having won 14 of their 15 assignments in all competitions since the turn of the year. "We will go about the game just as we did last Tuesday and of course try to win. We'll stay true to our playing style. We know what we have to do," added Heynckes.

"Dig deeper"


This determination and big game experience has served Heynckes' men unbelievably well so far this season, with Bayern racking up 13 wins from 14 away Bundesliga outings to date, conceding only twice on the road and losing only once in Europe away from the Allianz Arena against BATE Borisov.

With that surprise blot to the record-breaking copybook in mind though - not to mention the last 16 second leg defeat to Arsenal - vice-captain Bastian Schweinsteiger believes Bayern "will have to dig that little bit deeper" in Turin if they're to keep the dream of a rare Supercup, Bundesliga, DFB Cup and Champions League quadruple alive - a sentiment echoed by Dutch ace Arjen Robben.

Away goal the "key"


"It's not going to be easy," he explained. "We can't sit back. We have to stay fully focused. We have to be clever and, if possible, score as early as we can [..] It's not like we're the sort of side to hold back. An away goal will be key."

Just as well, then, that Bayern have hit the net in every single away encounter in this season's competition.

Possible line-ups:

Juventus: Buffon - Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini - Padoin, Pogba, Pirlo, Marchisio, Peluso - Vucinic, Quagliarella

Bayern: Neuer - Lahm, Van Buyten, Dante, Alaba - Martinez, Schweinsteiger - Robben, Muller, Ribery - Mandzukic
