Bayern Munich play host to Juventus on Tuesday in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinals tie. The matchup is perhaps the most tantalizing head-to-head in the last eight of Europe's elite club competition, with the two sides desperate to claim the trophy for the first time in over a decade.

Both clubs lead their respective domestic leagues as the home stretch of the season begins and can focus heavily now on success on the international stage. After struggling early in their European campaign, Juve have hit peak form and dismantled the likes of Chelsea and Celtic en route to the quarterfinals. They still have something to prove against Europe's very elite clubs, however, and now will look to make a statement against a Bayern side that reached two Champions League finals in three seasons.

Bayern survived a scare against Arsenal in the Round of 16, edging the Gunners on away goals after winning 3-1 in London. Despite sometimes struggling in the current European campaign, they have experience on their side and have beaten some elite sides in recent years.

Both Bayern and Juve are undeniably strong sides, and small details might make the difference in the two-legged tie. Click "Begin Slideshow" for analysis of the factors that could Bayern Munich through to the semifinals.
