Lichtsteiner wants to avoid Bayern

Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner has admitted that he would like to avoid Bayern Munich in the next round of the Champions League.

The Bianconeri are through to the quarter-finals after beating Celtic 5-0 over two legs, whereas the German side currently hold a 3-1 lead over Arsenal in their last 16 clash.

But the Switzerland international has conceded that he does not want to face Jupp Heynckes' men.

“I would like to avoid Bayern Munich,” he told Sky Sport Italia. “They are a really tricky team who have a great desire to win.

“With Antonio Conte in charge though, we can compete with anyone. He is the difference.”
