Bayern Munich will host Juventus at Allianz Arena in the second leg of their round of 16 tie in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The tie is delicately poised after the first leg ended in a 2-2 draw at Juventus Stadium. The Bundesliga giants are the favourites to go through to the next round, but last year’s finalists will be no pushover.
The German club has already started the mind games ahead of the crucial fixture. Juventus’ star midfielder Paul Pogba celebrated his 23rd birthday on March 15 and was duly congratulated by the Old Lady’s Twitter account.
However, Bayern Munich’s Twitter account sensed an opportunity and decided to send their own twisted wish to the French footballer. Along with their wish, the German club warned Pogba that they are going to ruin his birthday celebrations on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola must be hoping that his club’s Twitter account hasn’t woken up a beast in Pogba ahead of the game.
The last time these two clubs met in the Champions League was in the quarter-finals of the 2012/2013 edition, when Bayern Munich emerged victorious with an aggregate score of 4-0.
