1.(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) FC BARCELONA VICE-PRESIDENT JORDI MESTRE SAYING:

“It’s going to be a difficult game, they are going to be two difficult games, with the second leg happening on Bayern’s pitch, but well, we are in a good moment, we want to compete at our maximum level, perform two good matches and we hope we will win this qualifying.”

STORY: Barcelona will have the chance to avenge their 2013 humbling by Bayern Munich after being paired with the Germans again in the Champions League semi-final draw held in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday (April 24) which also pitted holders Real Madrid against Juventus.

Bayern thrashed Barcelona 7-0 on aggregate two years ago before going on to beat Borussia Dortmund to win their fifth European Cup.

Former Barca coach Pep Guardiola was on a year’s sabbatical at the time but will doubtless enjoy the challenge of trying to repeat that achievement on his first return to the Nou Camp since taking over at Bayern.

Jordi Mestre, Barcelona vice-president said he was expecting a tough encounter against the former Barcelona boss.

“It’s going to be a difficult game, they are going to be two difficult games, with the second leg happening on Bayern’s pitch, but well, we are in a good moment, we want to compete at our maximum level, perform two good matches and we hope we will win this qualifying,” Mestre said.

Bayern, who play the second leg against Bayern at home, will go into the tie on a high after their 6-1 quarter-final second-leg demolition of Porto but Barcelona were similarly impressive in dispatching a powerful Paris St Germain side 5-1 on aggregate.

The semi-finals will take place on May 5/6 and 12/13 with the final in Berlin on June 6.
