Bayern Munich

  • David Alaba 1'
  • Thomas Müller 63'

2 - 0

FT

  • 94'

    The only disappointment for Bayern is that they could have wrapped the tie up in the first half alone. Muller should have scored with one of his two chances at the end but the Germans will be confident of finishing the job next week in Turin. I, for one, won't be expecting anything else.

  • 94'

    FULL TIME - that is that! Bayern full value for their victory and plenty for Juve to do in the return leg.

  • 93'

    PSG level at 2-2 with Barca! Matuidi.

  • 92'

    Ribery off to a standing ovation, Shaqiri on.

  • 91'

    Lahm stumbles as he tries to cross. Into injury time now though no shot of the board to tell us how long left.

  • 90'

    Mandzukic comes off to a standing ovation, he's worked tirelessly, and Gomez comes on.

  • 89'

    Two chances to wrap the tie up for Muller! He comes inside from Mandzukic's flick and forces Buffon into a brilliant save, then he misses the follow up. Golden chances.

  • 88'

    Bayern have settled for this now. Juve scrabbling around. Uphill task if they can't find a goal.

  • 87'

    Barca lead 2-1 through a Xavi penalty.

  • 86'

    Ribery tries to beat Buffon from 60 yards. Inventive.

  • 85'

    Bonucci fires well wide from range after a good spell of Juve pressure. Pogba's shot was blocked as Chiellini bustled about too.

  • 84'

    Vidal will do well to keep his emotions in check here. Ribery gets away with the worst foul of the game.

  • 83'

    Vidal rolls off the pitch but Bayern still put the ball out, the replay shows that was an awful Ribery foul - studs up on the back of the leg. He deserved to walk. Vidal is raging.

  • 82'

    Clattenberg books Gustavo for diving now. He's having a whale of a time.

  • 81'

    Buffon punches clear from Schweinsteiger's delivery.

  • 80'

    Pirlo with a tired kick to bring down Gustavo. Free kick on the corner of the box.

  • 79'

    Robben tracks back well as Chiellini bursts into the area - an unlikely duel - and Bayern clear.

  • 78'

    Great run from Muller but sadly no shot to match when he finally unloaded.

  • 77'

    PSG level against Barca through Ibra!

  • 76'

    Lichsteiner booked for diving when he knocked the ball past Dante. He made sure there was contact, and there was, but it wasn't a dive. Inside the penalty area too. He'll miss the return leg.

  • 75'

    Pogba comes on for Peluso, who has been very quiet.

  • 74'

    Ribery caught offside when there was no need to be.

  • 73'


    Thomas Muller celebrates after doubling Bayern's advantage

  • 72'

    Vidal is fouled but Pirlo's free kick is cleared. Juve rebuild with Vidal on the right before Ribery pinches the ball.

  • 71'

    This could be an epic ding dong of a final chapter. Bayern sensing they can kill the tie off, Juve desperately trying to register an away goal.

  • 70'

    Ribery unleashes from range at the other end - Buffon punches clear instead of catching.

  • 69'

    Finally, Juve wake up as Vidal twice tests Neuer with a shot from the area then a deflected cross. Much better from the visitors.

  • 68'

    Juve are being schooled here. 20 minutes to save this tie.

  • 67'

    Vidal is finally booked, this time for a handball. Point blank range but his arm was out. He misses the second leg.

  • 66'

    Juve have been pretty rotten this evening and no wonder Conte has decided to change it. They have to come out and get a goal now you'd think.

  • 65'

    Juventus react with a double change: Matri and Quagliarella depart, Giovinco and Vucinic come on.

  • 64'

    Buffon at fault again I have to say, Gustavo's shot is parried, Mandzukic, who looked offside, grabs the ball and squares it for Muller to finish from two yards.

  • 63'

    GOAL Muller makes it 2-0!

  • 61'

    Juve have barely got out of their half since the restart. This is a classic Italian job now.

  • 60'

    A pretty aimless cross from Mandzukic, who has had limited impact since half time. Is it Gomez time?

  • 59'

    Robben is stopped in his tracks before Ribery dinks in a little cross. Mandzukic is on the floor again, claiming another arm to the face. That one looked worse than the first.

  • 58'

    Juve are definitely tighter - perhaps realising 1-0 isn't such a bad result.

  • 56'

    Not the thrills and spills we saw in the first half but still an intriguing contest.

  • 55'

    Alaba takes a Bayern free kick and Buffon pushes away his fizzing low effort.

  • 54'

    Bayern's fans go wild as Chiellini is booked for winning a header, brushing Mandzukic with his forearm in the process. Clattenberg has made himself the centre of attention yet again.

  • 53'

    Gustavo with a wild shot - miles over the bar.

  • 52'

    Alaba's shot blocked then Ribery's cross cleared. Juve penned in.

  • 51'

    Mandzukic penalised again. He looks disgusted. He needs to be careful.

  • 50'

    Juve sitting more compactly. If anything they've retreated since half time. Less space.

  • 49'

    Lichsteiner tripped by Alaba, he demands a yellow from Clattenberg. Doesn't get it.

  • 48'

    Good break from Bayern, Gustavo feeds Mandzukic and his near post effort is saved by Buffon.

  • 47'

    Barzagli in strongly on Schweinsteiger, again no card from Clatternberg. Now he penalises Mandzukic, who is definitely not his biggest fan.

  • 46'

    We begin again...

  •  


    Alaba's shot squeaks past Buffon

  •  

    Robben's introduction turned that half round - Bayern looked far more potent when he came on, if a little more open at the back. Juventus need a change of tactics for the second half I reckon.

  • 45'

    HALF TIME - a thoroughly entertaining half of football in which Bayern took the lead after 26 seconds, then wobbled, then stormed back with Robben as their talisman. They should be at least 3-0 up and may well be made to pay for their profligacy.

  • 45'

    Plenty of argy bargy in the box - Schweini and Quagliarella go flying. Clatternberg wants a word. Then from Pirlo's corner Bonucci flicks a header narrowly over.

  • 44'

    Good clearing header from Schweini as Vidal looked to get round the back post. Vidal is clipped by Mandzukic and gets booked. Astonishing. Clattenberg has let far worse fouls go.

  • 42'

    Now Schweinsteiger fires over on the stretch after lovely work from Muller. Juve on the ropes.

  • 41'

    Ribery is on fire tonight, he brushes Vidal aside but doesn't play the right ball for Robben. Barzagli clears before Buffon can get there.

  • 40'

    Gustavo thunders into Lichtsteiner and is lucky not to be booked. Pirlo curls in a lovely cross but no Juve player was attacking the danger zone.

  • 39'

    Barca lead in Paris thanks to Messi.

  • 38'

    Now Alaba fires a low ball across goal. Bayern are rampant here and must get a second.

  • 37'

    Great work from Ribery twice as he delivers dangerous crosses - from the second Mandzukic looks like he's bundled over by Bonucci. Juve fortunate.

  • 36'


    Robben misses a gilt-edged chance

  • 35'

    Robben shoots straight at Buffon with his latest sight of goal.

  • 34'

    Mandzukic makes sure he is bumped by Barzagli and wants a booking. Clattenberg keeps his cards close to his chest again.

  • 33'

    Matri tries to get in over the top but Neuer is out. Robben has transformed this game and should have had two goals already.

  • 32'

    What a chance! Robben has missed a glorious opening, Muller gets to the byline and pulls the ball back and from eight yards out Robben has missed. Incredible.

  • 31'

    Juve giving the ball away in dangerous positions, which is unlike them. Robben can't capitalise on the latest. Now Buffon is the culprit!

  • 30'

    Scweinsteiger's free kick is long and goes out for a goal kick. Not a mile away from the top corner.

  • 29'

    Bayern's fans are not happy at all about that. Ribery limps off for treatment. Vidal then cheekily suggests the free kick is being taken from the wrong place. That did not go down well.

  • 28'

    Vidal gives the ball away, then fouls Ribery and I'm very surprised he hasn't seen a card for that. He's committed two or three fouls already. Clearly not bothered about playing in Turin.

  • 27'

    Now Mandzukic wins a corner - everything coming down Bayern's right where Robben is stationed and Ribery is prone to wandering.

  • 26'

    Brilliant control from Robben, then a nice jink into the box but a poor touch with his right foot lets him down and he hands Juve a goal kick.

  • 25'

    Juve's flurry is curtailed and Bayern are dominant now.

  • 23'

    Dante wins the corner again, then van Buyten claims a tug from Chiellini. Mark Clattenberg waves away the suggestion.

  • 22'

    Good Bayern break, Lahm comes away and then Robben and Ribery combine to win yet another corner.

  • 21'

    Bayern's latest corner is met by Dante but he can only glance it wide.

  • 20'

    Now Ribery goes close! Bayern are in charge now as Mandzukic is dispossessed and Ribery's shot is deflected a yard wide of the post by Barzagli.

  • 19'

    Now Robben wins a corner and he has injected some verve into Bayern's attacking play.

  • 18'

    Robben goes close! Ribery's cross is cleared right to the Dutchman and his powerful shot is blocked brilliantly by Buffon, who didn't actually have to move.

  • 17'

    Robben drives to the byline but can't get a centre in or win a corner. Still, warm applause for his effort.

  • 16'

    Robben has gone to the right and Muller has come inside slightly in the Bayern rejig.

  • 15'


    David Alaba celebrates his opener on 26 seconds

  • 14'

    Kroos is helped off - it looks like a thigh injury. Robben replaces him.

  • 13'

    Super effort from Vidal after Lahm had given the ball away, he cuts inside and hammers a shot a yard wide of the post. Now Kroos is down. Robben warming up.

  • 12'

    Pirlo caught that beautifully, it dipped about six inches over the crossbar with Neuer watching it all the way.

  • 11'

    Van Buyten tugs Quagliarella down and Juve have a free kick 35 yards out. Pirlo over it.

  • 10'

    Ribery picks up the ball and runs at Juve, he offloaded to Muller and then stopped, rather than going for a return pass.

  • 9'

    Bayern have hardly had a kick since taking the lead.

  • 8'

    Bayern won 9-2 over Hamburg but both the goals they conceded came from corners. No doubt they've worked on defending set pieces in the last few days.

  • 7'

    Good pressing from Juve forces Alaba into a wayward pass that hands the Italians a corner. Neuer punches clear, less than convincingly.

  • 6'

    Conte barks instructions from the touchline. To be fair Juve have responded well to that early body blow.

  • 5'

    Van Buyten goes down after a hook back from Peluso, I think. Vidal then fouls Ribery and is lucky not to get a card - one which would rule him out of the return leg.

  • 4'

    Pirlo's corner is poor (collector's item) and Bayern clear.

  • 3'

    It took a decisive nick off Vidal - a little one but that was enough to turn the ball and career it back the other way. Juve hit back and win a corner.

  • 2'

    That swerved like a beast! Alaba's shot lacked power but started to veer one way before crashing back the other and Buffon was completely wrong-footed! What a start.

  • 1'

    GOAL Alaba shoots and scores inside 26 seconds!

  • 1'

    KICK OFF

  •  

    We're all set. Let's do this....

  •  

    Bayern, let us not forget, beat Hamburg 9-2 on Saturday - the fourth biggest win in Bundesliga history. Juve beat Inter 2-1 in the San Siro. Bayern haven't kept a clean sheet in the UCL this season though.

  •  

    Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are the only unbeaten sides remaining in the Champions League.

  •  

    This stat should cheer any Italian fans: Juventus have won all five European quarter-finals against German opponents and are unbeaten in 18 games in UEFA club competition, qualifying included.

  •  

    right, let's get down to some nitty gritty in the form of stats. Previous meetings first. The last one was in the 2009 group stages when they drew 0-0 in Munich but Bayern won 4-1 in Turin. Prior to that they couldn't be split - in the 2005 group stage the home side won 2-1 and the year before both sides won 1-0 away from home.

  •  

    Yes David Beckham might be starting for PSG against Barca tonight, but why follow that when you can enjoy a clash of the titans between German goal getters Bayern and the Old Lady herself, Juventus? It should be a belter.

  •  

    Bayern: Neuer, Lahm, van Buyten, Dante, Alaba, Gustavo, Schweinsteiger, Müller, Kroos, Ribéry, Mandzukic. Subs: Starke, Robben, Shaqiri, Pizarro, Boateng, Gomez and Tymoshchuk.

  •  

    Juventus: Buffon, Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini, Lichtsteiner, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Peluso, Matri, Quagliarella. Subs: Storari, Marrone, Padoin, Pogba, Asamoah, Vucinic, Giovinco.

  •  

    In order to be the best, you have to play the best, writes Juve blogger Mina Rzouki, while Susie Schaaf thinks Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has plenty of options.

  •  


    Bayern are in top form and won 9-2 last weekend

    Join us at 1945 BST to see if it will be German giants Bayern or Italy's leading club Juventus that takes the advantage in the Champions League
