Bayern Munich man Toni Kroos has claimed that 'only Barcelona' would have been a tougher draw than Juventus.
The Bundesliga leaders will play the Bianconeri in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
And the 23-year-old has admitted that his team are in for a tough challenge.
“Juventus have eliminated the winner of the last Champions League [Chelsea],” he told uefa.com.
“So I think, for us, they are the hardest team to face after Barcelona.
“To win we have to give our best and do not concede a goal at home – that will be crucial.
“Arturo Vidal has become a key player for them.”
