Rummenigge believes that the Old Lady pose a greater danger to Bayern progressing in the Champions League than Bordeaux...

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is ready to welcome Juventus to the Allianz Arena for Wednesday’s Champions League tie, and he is convinced the Old Lady will prove to be their main rivals in the group stage.

“We are awaiting the Bianconeri,” he said to Itasportpress.it. “It’s an important return to this competition for them after the black mark of Serie B.

“Juve are a very strong side. We must take them seriously and be very concentrated and determined.

“We have already defeated them in Munich and this could be a small advantage for us as we play in front of our fans. Besides, the Bianconeri are our most fearsome opponents in our group. They are superior to Bordeaux.”

Juventus drew 1-1 at home to the French champions in the opening round of games earlier this month, while the Bavarians defeated Maccabi Haifa 3-0 in Israel.
