Alvaro Morata has upped the anticipation for next week's UEFA Champions League clash between Juventus and Bayern Munich...by complimenting Robert Lewandowski's ripped abs.

The two European giants meet in Turin on Tuesday for the first leg of their last-16 tie, where Morata will be particularly wary of one man.

"Lewandowski is the best striker in the world for me," he told Sport Bild (h/t FourFourTwo). "I remember swapping shirts with him, he has an incredible six-pack."

Despite his admiration of the Polish striker, Morata warned Bayern that they will be faced with a tough task at the Juventus Stadium.

"The first leg will be very difficult for Bayern," he said. "Our stadium will be like hell for them. We are very well-organised and compact. We have conceded only once in our last nine games. We are a very intense team, and everybody is willing to go the extra mile for a team-mate."

We can't wait, and by the sounds of things, neither can Morata.
