Juventus made an epic comeback to tie their first Round of 16 match with Bayern Munich. Now, can Juve put away the Germans on March 16 and advance in the Champions League? Or will Der FCB walk away with a win? HollywoodLife.com wants you to see this game so click to watch!
Bayern Munich almost shut out Juventus, but the Zebras came roaring back to tie the Reds in an epic Champions League game. Now, with the stakes even higher than ever before, can Juve beat Bayern Munich or will Der FCB trample their Italian rivals?
Juve will trade in the beautiful Italian scenery — and we’re not talking about some of the hottest hunks on the pitch — to visit breathtaking Munich, Germany on March 16. The Reds will host the Zebras at the Allianz Arena for the second of two Round of 16 Champions Leagues games. Action kicks off at 3:45 P.M. EST, so when you’re done gazing at some of the best-looking athletes in the world, be sure to watch every single minute!
Sadly, Juve might need a miracle to win this match. Their striker, Mario Mandzukic, 29, is doubtful for this game, according to the BBC. Plus, striker Paulo Dybala, 22, and midfielder Claudio Marchisio, 30, will sit this one out. Losing two major strikers right before a critical match? That’s the kind of “March Madness” that no team wants to catch. Hopefully, Juve can pull off a “Cinderella Story” of its own and win.
“We’re aware of how strong Bayern are, but they also possess weak points,” Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci, 28, said. “We go to Munich full of enthusiasm and determination to reach the next round. No doubt about it, we started the first leg in completely the wrong fashion.” Uh-oh. Be sure you’re in the right fashion by wearing your official Juventus jersey, which you can get here.
Bayern has its own issues, as Arjen Robben, 32, might be benched, per ESPN. “I don’t know if he can play,” coach Pep Guardiola, 45, said during a press conference. Pep considers this game “a final for both team,” and that the first meeting was kind of a disappointment. “The 2-2 is a result,” he said. “A 5-0 would have been better, but it was not possible.” It’s possible to show your support by getting a Bayern Munich jersey here.
Bayern got a 5-0 victory by thrashing Weder Bremen on March 12, according to US News. Perhaps they’ll be ready to hold off the Zebras attack when these two teams meet on the field for the second and final time. Whoever wins, the game will definitely be one of the best displays of soccer that Europe has to offer.
Who do you think will win the game, HollywoodLifers?
