Toni Kroos cautions Juventus clash in quarter-finals

23-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos said their clash with Juventus is an unfortunate one and believes Bavarians can go through quarterfinals.


Juventus has axed Chelsea, Champions League winners 2012, in-group stage matches and they are sanding first in Serie A table with 65 points.

Though Bayern stands top in table, they should play more careful against Italian club to reach semi-final. First leg they need clean sheet.

Toni Kroos has told this rivalry will be a tough one for them to go ahead.

‘Juventus knocked last year’s Champions League winners out of the competition at the group stage. It’s the least good draw after Barcelona,’

‘We’ll need two top performances to go through. It would be optimal if we won the first leg while keeping a clean sheet. Arturo Vidal has emerged as a top-class player with Juventus.’

Italian side plays crucial games in recent days and stressing opponents for their win.

‘Juventus are a big name and a great team. Italian teams are always well organised, but I still think we definitely have a chance of going through.

‘We’re looking forward to both games and we’re delighted to be starting at home.’

First leg between Bayern Munich and Juventus is decided at Allianz Arena on April 2.
