The Bayern Munich star has vowed to give his all as the Bavarians chase a first-leg lead over the Bianconeri in the Champions League
Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger says his side is ready to face Juventus in the Champions League next week.

The Bavarians have a chance of winning the Bundesliga on Saturday against Hamburg, before locking horns with the Bianconeri, and the Germany star is looking forward to a crucial stage of the season.

"Of course I'm ready for Juventus. But before, we have to focus on Saturday's match against Hamburg and get a good result. Maybe we'll be able to win the league early, that would be superb," he told FCB News. "Juventus are a tough opponent. They have very experienced players among their ranks, which is especially important in the Champions League.

“We will give everything to secure a good result at home. However, I think it's gonna be a tight affair. At the end, I hope that we can prevail with our class and quality."

Bayern and Juve meet at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.
