As soon as the FC Bayern left the Allianz Arena following the 3:1 victory over Darmstadt, the German record champions turned their focus to the upcoming Champions League quarter final match in Turin, Italy against Juventus.
“It's going to be a difficult match. Juve are clever, the stadium is superb. I'm looking forward to it,” said Thomas Müller, seeing room for improvement after the match against Darmstadt. “We failed to make best use out of our chances, which is what caused our problems. We have to deliver a different performance against Juventus.”
The team can count on French Attacker Franck Ribery for the Tuesday match against Juventus. The noise level at the Allianz Arena during the 3-1 victory over Darmstadt peaked for the afternoon on 53 minutes when Franck Ribéry rose from the bench and took up station on the touchline. The Frenchman, coming on as a substitute for Kingsley Coman, waited for his fellow countryman to leave the field and then sprinted onto the pitch to huge cheers from the crowd. Ribéry had been anticipating this moment for 347 days.
