Champions League Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Bayern Munich

Claudio Villa

THE CHAMPIONS!!!!

So, Juventus' visit to Germany didn't go all that well. Or, to be frank, it pretty much sucked. There's not much more to say about what happened last Tuesday at the Allianz. It's pretty much in the past and we'll just leave it there. No reason to bring up one of the crappiest Juventus games in quite some time, right?

But because of it, Juve's task to keep the European dream alive is a monumental one. Down in a 2-0 hole even before they take the Juventus Stadium field tonight, the Old Lady needs a some sort of minor miracle to advance into the semifinals of the Champions League. It's a tough task — especially when you factor in Juve will be without Artruro Vidal and Stephan Lichtsteiner.

What will it be, Juve? The stadium will be packed. The tifosi will certainly be signing at full voice, trying to will their beloved team to a victory. Bayern showed vulnerability the last time there was a second leg in the Champions League. Hey, if Arsenal can do it, so can Juventus, right? RIGHT?!

That's a great way of looking at things. Positivity, thy name is Juventus!

Or maybe what I've spent typing is a bunch of hooey and Bayern will prove, over two legs, that they're the better team.
