Italian Serie A News, Results, Analysis and Features on Football Soccer

In about 5 hours Serie A viewers should know whether or not Juve and Milan will be joining Fiorentina in the final 16 of Champions League. Juventus although playing at the stadio Olimpico in front of the hometown supporters (assuming they turn out) in my opinion is the more challenging venue.

The Bianconeri are to be without 2 key components from the rear defence with talk of keeper Gigi Buffon and defender Georgio Chiellini missing today’s main event against German side Bayern.

Head-to-head Juventus and Bayern drew 0-0 in their first encounter in this season’s Champions League yet in 2004/2005, Juventus beat Bayern in both group stage matches by a scores of 1-0. The good news for this encounter is Juve have not lost in their last 16 CL home matches, since losing 0-1 against Deportivo La Coruña in Mar 2004
