Despite taking an early lead and scoring another goal soon after, the Germans were unable to prevent Juventus from scoring twice. This means that they can't afford to lose at home, but at least they could advance the next round even if they split points again.

It definitely helps that they score twice on the road, because even if the match and undecided, they are likely to advance to the quarterfinals. This won't lead to significant changes in the starting formation and they are still expected to field three strikers.
Juventus can't afford to take any chances either, because the Germans prove their quality in the first leg by scoring twice in a quick succession. Both teams are dangerous on counterattacks and since narrow margin victory would be enough for Juventus, few chances will be taken on either sites.
