Juventus have had a long and frustrating season, but they managed to get through a very difficult Champions League group and have finally climbed back atop Serie A for the first time this season. Their reward? A Champions League round of 16 tie with Bayern Munich.
There's a lot of reason to think that Bayern can overwhelm Juventus in this tie, especially with the Italians hit pretty hard by injuries right now. Add that to former midfield mainstay Arturo Vidal being able to give Pep Guardiola intimate details about Max Allegri's tactics and things look grim for the bianconeri.
But you shouldn't count them out before the tie even begins. They still have Paul Pogba. They still have Gianluigi Buffon. They still have Paulo Dybala, arguably the hottest young striker in Europe right now. They still have a number of other talented players who will fight tooth and nail for all 180 minutes of this tie, plus extra time if they need to. Bayern have every reason to be confident, but Juventus can guarantee them one thing: they will not make this tie easy for the Germans for one second.
