Juventus will face Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League.

The draw ceremony has just been completed and Juve face arguably the toughest team in this years competition.

Bayern topped Group F securing wins against Arsenal, Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos while Juventus did the double against Man City and lost just one group game against Sevilla.

Arturo Vidal and Kingsley Coman will return to Turin just months after leaving the club to join the German champions.

The first leg of the ties will take place on February 16/17 and 23/24, with the return legs due for March 8/9 and 15/16.

Juventus director Pavel Nevded was in Nyon for the draw and gave his thoughts on facing Bayern.

“I’ve had better days,” he told Premium Sport.

“The group was already difficult, the team did well to get through it without great difficulty.

“Maybe we were hoping for better luck today but this means that we have to suffer once again.

“I really like the team in Europe, we’re confident of playing two good matches.

“We have improved a lot to be competitive in Europe, but with Bayern it will be very difficult.

“No one is unbeatable, we must think like this.

“Dybala? Marotta and Paratici have worked perfectly. We are not weaker than last year: we lost some champions but we set up a team that can play these games in Europe.

“All we need is a bit of maturity andnexperience, but these are the matches where we will acquire that.

“We’ve found certainty and security with this formation, but that doesn’t mean that later we won’t make changes with players in better form or who have recovered.

“It doesn’t depend on the formation, we talk too much about this.”
