Match facts: Bayern v Juventus


UEFA Champions League statistics
• Bayern's next European Cup victory will be their 150th.

• The German club have conceded 399 goals in UEFA competition.

• Bayern have won 73 corners and collected 21 yellow cards, both more than any other side still involved.

• Claudio Pizarro's 16-minute hat-trick against LOSC Lille on matchday four was the third fastest in UEFA Champions League history.

• The round of 16 second-leg defeat against Arsenal FC ended Bayern's ten-game unbeaten home run in the UEFA Champions League, discounting last season's final, since a 3-2 loss to FC Internazionale Milano in the 2010/11 first knockout round – their only previous defeat in their last 18 home outings.

• Manuel Neuer has played every minute of Bayern's campaign.

• Bayern have scored 18 goals, the joint highest total in the competition along with Real Madrid CF.

• Jérôme Boateng (two matches) and Bastian Schweinsteiger (one) are available after suspensions; Javi Martínez serves a one-game ban while Dante and Philipp Lahm will incur a suspension with their next yellow cards.

• Saturday's 9-2 home defeat of Hamburger SV was Bayern's fourth biggest Bundesliga victory. Claudio Pizarro scored his first four league goals this season, the third one from an assist by Arjen Robben, who now has four goals in his last four Bundesliga games.

• It was the first time Pizarro had scored four times in one Bundesliga game; the striker is only the second player in Bundesliga history to have been involved in six goals – scoring four with two assists – in a single game. Dieter Müller struck six times in 1. FC Köln 's 7-2 win against SV Werder Bremen on 17 August 1977.

• Jupp Heynckes' side remain 20 points clear at the Bundesliga summit with seven games to go.

• Thomas Müller has scored 44 Bundesliga goals – the same number mustered for Bayern by Franz Beckenbauer and Michael Ballack.

• Bayern have won ten in a row in the Bundesliga in 2013, surpassing Dortmund's league record for the start to a calendar year set last term. Before Saturday, their haul of 69 points from 26 games represented a new high for the German top flight.

• That ten-game winning run equals a single-season Bundesliga record shared by VfL Wolfsburg (2008/09) and VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach (1986/87), the latter under the guidance of Heynckes.

• Heynckes' side have won 13 of their last 14 matches.

• Bayern have won 12 out of 13 on their travels in the Bundesliga this season, surpassing the record for most away victories in a campaign that had stood at 11. They have conceded just twice in the process.

• On 16 January Bayern announced that Josep Guardiola will succeed Heynckes on a three-year deal this summer.

• Bayern secured the title of autumn champions (the side top of the Bundesliga after 17 matches going into the winter break) with three games to spare – no team has ever achieved it earlier.

• Holger Badstuber could miss the rest of the season after rupturing knee ligaments against Dortmund on 1 December.

• Jan Kirchhoff, a 22-year-old who can play at the back or as a holding midfielder, will link up with Bayern from 1. FSV Mainz 05 this summer on a three-year deal.

• Bayern's eight straight Bundesliga victories at the start of the season was a new record, surpassing the mark of seven set by themselves (1995/96), 1. FC Kaiserslautern (2001/02) and Mainz (2010/11).

• Bayern started the season with nine straight victories in all competitions – the last time they began with even six, in 2000/01, they claimed the UEFA Champions League.

International duty
• Fifteen Bayern players were on senior duty during last week's international break: Neuer, Lahm, Schweinsteiger, Müller, Boateng (Germany), Dante, Luiz Gustavo (Brazil), Mario Mandžukić (Croatia), Daniel Van Buyten (Belgium), David Alaba (Austria), Arjen Robben (Netherlands), Anatoliy Tymoshchuk (Ukraine), Franck Ribéry (France), Claudio Pizarro (Peru) and Xherdan Shaqiri (Switzerland).

• Mario Gomez (strain) and Toni Kroos (knee) pulled out of the Germany reckoning with knocks. Van Buyten missed Belgium's second fixture against the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia with muscular problems.

• Müller scored twice on 22 March as Germany won 3-0 in Kazakhstan; Schweinsteiger missed the 4-1 home victory against the same side four days later through suspension.

• Alaba scored in Austria's 6-0 win against the Faroe Islands and the 2-2 draw in the Republic of Ireland, the latter an added-time equaliser. Mandžukić (Croatia 2-0 Serbia) and Ribéry (France 3-1 Georgia) were also on target.


UEFA Champions League statistics
• Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are the only unbeaten sides remaining in the competition.

• Juve have gone 490 minutes without conceding a goal in the competition, since Mikkel Beckmann's effort for FC Nordsjælland on matchday three. They have conceded four goals, the lowest total among the quarter-finalists.

• Gianluigi Buffon and Leonardo Bonucci have played every minute of Juventus's campaign.

• Juventus's win against Nordsjælland on matchday four ended an unprecedented nine successive draws in European competition; the previous high was seven.

• The last time Juventus started the group stage with three draws, in 1998/99, they reached the semi-finals.

• On matchday one, Juventus became only the second team to avoid defeat against Chelsea FC in the UEFA Champions League after going two goals down, following AS Monaco FC in the 2004 semi-final second leg.

• Stephan Lichtsteiner, Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal will incur a suspension with their next yellow cards.

• The Bianconeri have a nine-point lead at the Serie A summit with eight games to go following Saturday's 2-1 victory at FC Internazionale Milano.

• Before Rodrigo Palacio's 54th-minute effort for Inter, Juventus had gone 371 minutes without conceding a goal.

• Unbeaten in the league last season, Juventus have lost four Serie A games this term.

• Giorgio Chiellini, who missed the first two months of 2013 with a calf problem, injured his ankle in the 2-0 win at Bologna FC on 16 March and was ruled out of international duty but returned on Saturday.

• Martín Cáceres suffered facial bruising, cuts and a head trauma in a car crash on 17 March.

• A thigh injury sustained in a pre-season friendly has limited Simone Pepe to just 22 minutes of action this term.

• Fernando Llorente will join Juve on a four-year deal this summer when his contract runs out at Athletic Club.

• Juve's 49-game unbeaten run in Serie A ended on 3 November with a 3-1 loss at home to FC Internazionale Milano.

International duty

• Buffon won his 126th cap against Malta on 26 March, moving level with Paolo Maldini in second on Italy's highest appearances list. He marked the occasion by saving a Michael Mifsud penalty in a 3-0 victory.

• Pogba made his international debut in the 3-1 victory over Georgia on 22 March but was sent off four days later as France lost 1-0 at home to Spain.

• Vučinić scored the only goal as Montenegro won 1-0 in Moldova before helping earn a 1-1 draw against England four days later that kept his side top of Group H.
