THE CHAMPIONS!!!!

Claudio Villa

No real surprises. No shocking developments that will make you throw something against the wall. It's pretty much the squad you would have expected to see for Juventus' first-leg quarterfinal tilt against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

I guess that makes us all geniuses, right? Eh, whatever.

The squad that has already eaten all their Easter chocolate and headed on a plane to Germany. From Juventus' official website:

1 - Gianluigi Buffon

3 - Giorgio Chiellini

6 - Paul Pogba

8 - Claudio Marchisio

9 - Mirko Vucinic

11 - Paolo De Ceglie

12 - Sebastian Giovinco

13 - Federico Peluso

15 - Andrea Barzagli

18 - Nicolas Anelka

19 - Leonardo Bonucci

20 - Simone Padoin

21 - Andrea Pirlo

22 - Kwadwo Asamoah

23 - Arturo Vidal

24 - Emanuele Giaccherini

26 - Stephan Lichtsteiner

27 - Fabio Quagliarella

30 - Marco Storari

32 - Alessandro Matri

34 - Rubinho

39 - Luca Marrone

A few somewhat important pieces of news from the Easter Sunday training session in Vinovo before the squad headed out to the airport for a flight to Munich:

1. Mirko Vucinic, who did not play against Inter after coming down with a fever, was not one of those who took part in any of the activities on Sunday.

2. Sebastian Giovinco, who was lucky not to have his leg snapped by Esteban Cambiasso's last-second tackle, also wasn't part of the training session on Sunday. No official word from Juventus on the condition of the knock Giovinco suffered, so who knows whether he will be on the bench come Tuesday night against Bayern. Also, reports that Giovinco didn't take part in training to actually serve as the Easter Bunny have yet to be confirmed.

3. No Mauricio Isla, who was not called up for the Inter win because of muscle fatigue.

4. No Martin Caceres, for obvious reasons.

Avanti!
