MUNICH---Bayern Munich has
been relying on its fearsome attack
to overcome a shortage of trained
defenders. That has worked with
hardly a hitch in the Bundesliga,
where Bayern is rarely challenged.
The latest example: Bayern hardly
broke a sweat in a 5-0 thrashing of
Werder Bremen on Saturday.
Werder was limited to 17 per cent
possession, while Bayern's coach
Pep Guardiola rested Arjen Robben
and top striker Robert Lewandowski
only played the last 15 minutes, long
enough to score.
Robben missed yesterday's train-
ing, reportedly with a cold, and
Guardiola said he did not know if
the winger would be able to play.
Bayern usually seizes immediate
control and puts the opponent
under tremendous pressure from
the first whistle. How effective it
can be was evident in the first leg
against Juventus in the Round of
16 in the Champions League. For
an hour, Bayern dominated the Ital-
ian champion and led 2-0.
But then Juventus exploited the
lack of experience and size in Bay-
ern's defense as Paulo Dybala and
Stefano Sturaro scored to put last
season's Champions League run-
ner-up back on level terms. The
return leg is on Wednesday in
Both goals came after errors by Joshua
Kimmich, a midfielder thrust into Bay-
ern's central defense by Guardiola.
Guardiola has been full of praise for
Kimmich, but he does not have the
stature of a central defender.
Guardiola has been forced to exper-
iment because three of his defenders---
Holger Badstuber, Javi Martinez and
Jerome Boateng---are on the long-term
Two-time champion Juventus may
have figured out where Bayern could be
"We go to Munich full of enthusiasm
and determination to reach the next
round. We're fully aware of how strong
Bayern are, but they also possess a few
weak points which we'll look to exploit,"
defender Leonardo Bonucci said.
"No doubt about it, we started the
first leg in completely the wrong fashion.
It had nothing to do with what formation
we were playing, we knew that we had
to give more. We confronted one another
face to face and took it upon ourselves
to come out fighting and, from that
point onwards, we saw the true Juventus
once more," Bonucci said of the first
leg.Bayern captain Philipp Lahm does
not expect the return leg to be much
"We are not going to change our
game. We are a team that attacks a lot,"
the captain of the five-time Champions
League winner said. "But it's hardly
possible to shut down Juventus com-
pletely and to prevent them from having
"We always play to win and to score
goals," Franck Ribery said. "But we have
to play with patience and intelligence,
we are playing against a great team."
Here are some things to know about
Bayern may be fearsome in attack but
it is coming up against the rock that is
Gianluigi Buffon, who is in the form of
The Juventus goalkeeper is three min-
utes away from equaling a 22-year Serie
A record after keeping a 10th successive
clean sheet in Friday's 1-0 win over Sas-
Buffon has not been beaten in Serie
A in 926 minutes, now the second-
longest stretch in league history.
The unbeaten record in Serie A is held
by Sebastiano Rossi, who kept a clean
sheet for 929 consecutive minutes for
AC Milan from Dec. 12, 1993, to Feb.
27, 1994, beating the previous mark set
by former Juventus goalkeeper Dino Zoff
in 1972-73 by 26 minutes.
Buffon can match Rossi's record in
next weekend's derby match at Torino.
"Bayern is of course the better team,
but we think we can cause problems for
them," Buffon said Tuesday. "We man-
aged to get out of a nearly desperate
situation in the first match."
Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic
will be eager to return to Munich, where
he played for two seasons but was
Mandzukic did not score in Turin but
he was a constant threat and has the
size and drive to bother Bayern's defense.
At least, that's what Bayern captain
Philipp Lahm expects.
"Mario was always eager, also when
he played for us. He will want to prove
himself against his old club, that's nor-
mal," Lahm said.
Two other players will be seeing old
teammates again---Arturo Vidal and
Kingsley Coman played for Juventus
before arriving in Bayern this season.
Mandzukic, who appeared to be limp-
ing when he was substituted on Friday,
has been included in Massimiliano Alle-
gri's 21-man squad for the trip to Ger-
many, but three other key players are
definitely out with injury---midfielder
Claudio Marchisio, defender Giorgio
Chiellini and striker Paulo Dybala.
"He trained, he feels good," Allegri
said of Mandzukic. "He's an extraordi-
nary striker. He creates a lot of pres-

have to take risks and score at least one
Bayern has a top striker in Robert
Lewandowski as well as the mercurial
all-rounder Thomas Mueller but its most
effective force may be its wingers.
Veterans Franck Ribery and Arjen
Robben can tear apart any defense, while
their backups Kingsley Coman and Dou-
glas Costa have proven to be almost as
effective in their first season with the
Ribery is only coming back after an
ankle injury he sustained against
Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions
League a year ago. The Frenchman is
hitting form in the key stage of the sea-
son. Ribery and Robben were injured
last year as Bayern got knocked out of
the German Cup and the Champions
League in the semifinals.
"We have four incredible players on
the flanks," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola
It remains to be seen whom he picks
to play against Juventus. Coman set up
three goals in the 5-0 Bundesliga win
over Werder Bremen, but Ribery and
Robben have experience on their side---
but Robben is doubtful. (AP)
