Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez believes that Juventus are not a 'typically Italian team'.
The Bundesliga leaders are 2-0 up from the first leg their Champions League quarter-final.
But the Spain international has praised the Bianconeri's style, whilst also revealing his admiration for Andrea Pirlo.
“Juventus have proven that they are not a typical Italian team,” he told Abendzeitung.
“They are not limited only to defence. They play good football all the way from the back.
“I think we won [on Tuesday] because tactically we were a lot better.
“I have followed Pirlo's career closely for many years. He is an incredible player.
“I always try to learn something from him.”
