Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon believes that Bayern Munich will go on to win this season's Champions League after knocking his side out.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has tipped Bayern Munich to win the Champions League after the Germans cruised to a 4-0 aggregate victory over his side in the quarter-finals.

Jupp Heynckes's side came out 2-0 winners in this evening's second leg, and Buffon believes that experience was the difference between the two sides.

"The big difference between them and us is experience. I was even more impressed tonight than in Munich," BBC Sport quotes him as saying.

"In the first leg we did not give our all, but tonight we did and still there was nothing we could do. I think Bayern can win the Champions League."

Mario Mandzukic and Claudio Pizarro were on target in Turin as Bayern strolled into the last four of the competition.
