Line-ups: Juventus-Bayern Munich

Juventus try to overturn their Champions League quarter-final tie with Bayern Munich, looking to Paul Pogba, Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella.

The Bianconeri lost the first leg 2-0 in Germany and were completely out-played, but Coach Antonio Conte has promised “a very different performance.”

Arturo Vidal and Stephan Lichtsteiner sit out bans, while Sebastian Giovinco, Simone Pepe, Nicolas Anelka and Nicklas Bendtner are injured.

Vucinic partners Quagliarella in attack, while Pogba steps in for the banned Vidal in midfield with Claudio Marchisio and Andrea Pirlo.

Simone Padoin is the surprise pick on the flank with Kwadwo Asamoah taking the other side.

Martin Caceres returns to the bench for the first time since his horrific car crash last month.

Bayern Munich have already been celebrating over the past week, as they secured the Bundesliga title with a record-breaking 20-point lead and six rounds to spare.

Javi Martinez was suspended in Munich, but returns to the side, while Toni Kroos is still unavailable after suffering a thigh strain in the first leg.

Arjen Robben and Mandzukic will be hoping to again cause the Juve back line real problems.

The last time these sides met in Turin was the 2009-10 group stage, when Juve had taken the lead only to collapse 4-1.

The Bianconeri won 1-0 in the 2004-05 group phase and 2-1 in 2011-12.
