Thoughts From Both Camps

“We have to accept the result of the first leg. Juventus are Juventus, with their own special spirit. I know the Italian mentality, it has won them so many trophies. They wait for their moment. They know how to defend and how to score goals. After the first game, my appreciation and respect for Juve is even greater.”

– Pep Guardiola, Bayern Munich.

“We have to play a perfect game tomorrow. If we are not able to do so, it will be very difficult. We know Bayern are a team that normally take control of the game. It is possible Bayern are underestimating Juventus. But I don’t think so, they have lots of respect for us, as we do have for them. We have to be very careful and try to be the better team tomorrow. It is as simple as that.”

– Massimilano Allegri, Juventus.
