Former Germany striker Oliver Neuville believes that Juventus will be going to "war" against Bayern Munich in Turin on Wednesday.

The Bavarians hold a 2-0 lead from the Germany leg last week and the 39-year-old feels the Italian fans will give Jupp Heynckes' side a hostile reception.

“It will not be a pleasant atmosphere for Bayern. It will be a war against the Germans," he told

"I know that in Turin, they have a small stadium and the Juve fans create a really good atmosphere. It is a different game [from the first leg].”

However, Neuville went on to back Bayern to progress thanks to their good work at the Allianz Arena last Tuesday.

“In football, you never know what happens, but I assume that Bayern will do it,” he continued.

"Should Bayern score, then Juve will need four goals [to progress]. I do not think they can succeed. Bayern are too strong this season.”
