Claudio Pizarro admits that winning against Juventus on Tuesday will not be easy for Bayern Munich.

Bayern Munich striker Claudio Pizarro has admitted that winning against Juventus in the Champions League on Tuesday will not be as easy as it was against Hamburg on Saturday.

The German giants defeated HSV 9-2 at home in the Bundesliga, with the Peruvian striker scoring four goals.

"It was a Bundesliga game, but I think it also served as a preparation for Tuesday's game which gives us confidence," Pizarro told "We think we can play another good game on Tuesday.

"Yes, I think so too [that it will be more difficult against Juventus]. But if we can get a goal, then maybe they will open up a bit at the back.

"Maybe we can then take advantage of that and get a few more goals. That would be important for the [return] match in Turin."

Bayern will host the first leg of their quarter-final tie at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.
