Juventus will give Bayern Munich's Arturo Vidal 'a few kicks' - Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba has warned Arturo Vidal not to expect a warm welcome on his return to the Juventus Stadium on Wednesday night.

Vidal makes his first return to Turin since joining Bayern Munich from Juventus last summer and despite contributing to a successful spell which included four straight Serie A titles, he is not going to be given an easy ride on his return -- at least not by his former teammates.

"We know him so we will give him a few kicks -- but nothing too nasty! We hope to win against my friend 'Arturito,'" Pogba told UEFA.com.

"We know all about Arturo's quality -- he is very dynamic, he runs a lot and he can score at any moment. He is very skilful, he can play a great final ball, so he is a complete player; everyone knows it. We will work in training on stopping him and the other Bayern players."

France international Pogba added: "We're not favourites against Bayern, but that's no problem for us. Playing against PSG, Barcelona, Bayern ... it's the Champions League. There are no small teams in the Champions League after the group stage. We will give everything and try to qualify from this round."

Bayern won home and away the last time these two teams met in the quarterfinals three years ago, but Juve have improved since then and reached the final last term. Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon said losing 4-0 on aggregate in 2013 was not so bad anyway.

"I think they were almost unbeatable back then, and that's why we lost 2-0 home and away," Buffon said at Monday's news conference. "But Barcelona conceded four to them, so we didn't do that badly on reflection."
