Juventus prepared for penalties

Seven Juventus players have been put on alert should their Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich go to penalties.

The Old Lady are 2-0 down after the first leg and the two sides will meet in the decider on Wednesday in the Champions League.

According to reports today, boss Antonio Conte prepared his team for a possible penalty shoot-out on Monday.

It is believed that if the game goes that far then the five Bianconeri penalty takers will primarily come from a group of seven players.

They will be: Mirko Vucinic, Fabio Quagliarella, Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio, Paul Pogba, Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci.

Arturo Vidal would have been a contender, but the Chilean international is suspended for the second leg tie.

Sebastian Giovinco could also be asked to step up, although it is unclear at this stage whether he will be fit for the game.
