Massimiliano Allegri: "We have to focus and treat it as it's the most important game of the year. We have to try to secure qualification in Madrid that won't be easy for sure, but it could also take us to an unexpected final. Juventus are having a good spell from a physical point of view. The club hasn't played a game of this importance for 12 years, but I believe we now have the experience and confidence to play well at this level. On Wednesday we will need to deliver a performance that is almost perfect. I won't say perfect because that is impossible in football, but for sure we'll need our best performance to go through."

Carlo Ancelotti on Gareth Bale's agent suggesting the winger's teammates do not pass to him enough: "This is a world in which a lot of people talk and sometimes they talk too much. Bale's agent spoke who has never been to one of our training sessions, who doesn't know the atmosphere we have, who spoke from outside. Bale has never had problems with his team mates and his team mates have never had problems with Bale. So too many words and it would have been better to stay quiet. We are happy with Bale's season."

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique does not envisage trying to defend the three-goal lead tonight in Germany. “If we have got this far with good results then we have to do the same. We won’t sit back.

“In the previous round they came back. We know that at times we will have problems. We want the game to be like the first leg.”

Guardiola still believes his side can turn round the tie despite the three-goal deficit, and will not implement a radical change of tactics similar to last week, where he initially played a back three against Messi, Neymar and Suarez.

"We have to be more aware of what our offensive duties are and, after the game, the result will speak for itself."

Only one team has ever recovered a three-goal first leg deficit in Champions League history. That happened in the 2004 quarter-finals, when Deportivo La Coruna beat AC Milan 4-0 in Galicia after losing the first leg 4-1 in the San Siro.

Pep Guardiola: "You don't stop Messi, in this form, no. In the last few months he has been unstoppable. He is too good. Maybe you can try different tactics like getting close to him, making it difficult for him to get the ball, put three players on him but against talent of this size then you cannot defend against it. We will have to look at other ways to win the game."

No surprises in the Barca line-up as Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar forge that formidable frontline. Bayern are missing a raft of key personnel but are buoyed by the news Robert Lewandowski will feature and could well be wearing a protective mask. The striker broke his nose and jaw during a German cup defeat to Borussia Dortmund but is fit to start. Prior to news of his selection, Lewandowski said: "It's all OK. We'll take a look and see how it is, but I'm not afraid of anything."

The climax of this tie will see one side take their place in the 2015 Champions League final in Berlin's Olympic Stadium. But that fact has been almost overshadowed tonight, with Guardiola's first appearance back at the Camp Nou as an opposing coach taking centre stage. The 44-year-old Catalan won 14 trophies in a remarkable four-year stint at the helm of the club he served as a player with such distinction. During that period 'his' Barcelona emerged as one of the greatest club sides of all-time and many of those stars will be hoping to make it a nightmare return for him this evening.

H-T! Juventus 1-1 Real Madrid. The first half of the half was all about Juventus, the second belonged to Real Madrid. Massimiliano Allegri's side pressed brilliantly to start with and got their goal through Real Madrid's (very young) oldboy Alvaro Morata, but they seemed to run out of steam after 20 minutes and Cristiano Ronaldo's goal has given Real the upper hand in the tie. What can Juventus do to regain control?
