Match: Champions League - Round of 16

When: 13th February at 1945 hrs

Where: Allianz Stadium

Referee: Felix Brych

Form: WWWWW (Juv) DWDWW (Tot) All Competitions

This is the first competitive meeting between us and Juventus

Juventus are unbeaten in their last 22 Champions League home games (W14 D8), their longest ever run without defeat in the competition on home soil. They have also kept nine clean sheets in their last 13 home games in the competition. They have lost only two of their last 19 CL games (v Real Madrid in last season's final and Barcelona in this season's group stages), winning 12 and drawing 5. However as per last season's CL, they have allowed the fewest shots on target - 2.3 per game. They have reached the final of the CL in 2 of the last 3 seasons. They have also lost the last 5 CL finals they have featured in

Meanwhile, we have reached the knockout stages of this competition for the 2nd time in 3 appearances after 2010 / 11. We have never progressed further than the quarter finals. We are one of 4 teams still unbeaten in this season's CL, alongside Barcelona, Besiktas and Liverpool. Among the 16 clubs left in this season's competition, we are the only side along with Shakhtar Donetsk yet to score from set-piece, all 15 of our goals have come from open play.

I want us to be very competitive in the best way we know how, i.e our pressing. Will be satisfied with a score draw, but obviously a win would be better!

I know we had a relatively taxing game on Saturday but with the opportunity for significant rotation at the weekend, I'm hoping for non-stop pressing and hassling them from the off.

I've got that Milan in the San Siro feeling about tonight. I'm confident of a 1-0 with Sonny getting a breakaway goal.

Christ they've only conceded one goal in their last 12 league matches, one in 19 if you include cup games.

Official squad from Juventus and Mandzukic is in. Kind of surprised as he was carried off on Sunday so must have been precautionary. Still a good first 11 they can have but not as strong as it could be. Dembele and Dier i hope will boss that midfield.

They're good but the days of us fearing anyone are gone now.

Go at them with pace and power and give them something new to think about.

We must be more clinical than recently as chances are likely to be few.

must be careful to not leave gaps when pressing aggressively, Juve are good at making & playing into space
