UEFA Champions League: Bayern Munich vs. Fiorentina
Bundesliga club Bayern Munchen (Munich) takes on Italian sideFiorentina at the Stadio Artemio Franchi tonight (20:45 CET) in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last 16 tie.
On February 17 a late goal from Miroslav Klose gave the Germans a 2-1 home victory over the Florence club.
While Bayern are seeking a second successive quarter-final appearance, the Viola have not reached the last eight of Europe’s elite club competition since 1970. And captain Riccardo Montolivo has described tonight’s fixture as the most important game of his life.
Fiorentina is coming off a 2-1 defeat to Juventus that saw them drop to 11th in Serie A, but the Italians had a perfect winning record at home in the group stage of the Champions League, beating Liverpool, Debreceni and Lyon.
UPDATE: Bayern lost 3-2 to Fiorentina but still managed to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals on away goals.
