Juventus and Bayern have met in four of the last ten Champions League tournaments, and they renew their rivalry again today in Italy. The Germans have won three straight meetings between the sides, but could have problems today with injuries to their back line.

Javi Martinez, Jerome Boateng and Holger Badstuber are all out of today’s contest. Pep Guardiola’s men still haven’t lost in the Bundesliga since December, and still have the likes of Lewandowski, Muller, and former Juve star Arturo Vidal attacking. Vidal admitted he still follows his former teams’ performances, and told reporters this week that the Italians “have some really dangerous players.”

Juventus had their run of 15 straight Serie A victories broken over the weekend, but a 0-0 draw to Bologna still extended their impressive unbeaten run. They lead Napoli by one point in Serie A, but it’s their impressive home form that could carry into today’s match. Juventus has played 12 matches in Serie A this season, losing just once and allowing only six goals. The last and only time Juventus was beaten at home by a foreign club was in 2013, when Bayern Munich won en route to a Champions League title.

Kickoff is set for 2:45 p.m. Eastern and US users can watch the match on Fox Sports 2.

Bayern come away without a win, but with two important away goals heading back to the Allianz. Juventus were dominated in the first half, but could’ve made the difference with a few early chances. Juventus had all the momentum late, and Massimiliano Allegri is surely hoping that momentum can transition to the return leg in three weeks.
