Bayern has the same side that lost to Barcelona last week in UEFA Champions League semi finals. Barca leads 3-0 to Guardiola’s army. Calamity has struck Bayern, Injuries for Arjen Robben, Alaba and Ribery is still haunting the German Giants. In a statement Muller clearly stated that the match is far from over.
It will not be prophetic to say that the team, who has the potential to score six goals in quarter finals against Porto will let Barcelona win without giving them a sweat. Gotze is likely to start for Bayern in a few hours. The road to finals for the Mess-led squad will not be as easy as Camp Nou. Bayern has a record of outclassing Barca but the statistics say something else this year. Nevertheless, Bayern has a 100 percent record in UEFA at Home.
Guardiola’s former team-mate and Barcelona’s Manager, Luis Enrique now sees it as a win. El Classico in the finals is on the cards.
Talking on Messi, his performance in the last match against Bayern created a fire among team mates- Neymar and Suarez. Neymar in a statement said “Messi inspires me every day.”
People have started saying, nothing, and no-one can stop him from achieving his goals, not Boateng, not Manuel Neuer, not even Pep Guardiola.
