Bayern wanted return home advantage

Bayern Munich chief Uli Hoeness would have preferred home advantage in the second leg of their Champions League game against Juventus.

Bayern will entertain the Bianconeri on April 2 and then travel to Turin on April 10 following Friday’s last eight draw.

“It will be a very difficult tie because we are playing at home first,” the former West German international told Bild.  “I would have preferred to play the first game in Italy.

“Both Juventus and Bayern are great sides and I’m convinced that they are not encounters which will end 1-1.

“For now though we just have to think about our domestic League matches so that we get to the quarter-final games in a relaxed mood."

Who were the last team to beat Juventus in the Champions League? Bayern Munich – their next opponents in the competition.
