1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FC BAYERN MUNICH FORMER PLAYER PAUL BREITNER SAYING:

“We have to realise that we are going to play Barcelona, and we have to realise, and we know that we have to demonstrate, to play, on the best level we can, the same we played last Tuesday against Porto in the first half, we have to play at this level, not just 45 minutes, but twice, or 90 minutes and then I think we will reach the final, but also Barcelona have to play at their best level they can do.”

2. (SOUNDBITE) (English) FC BAYERN MUNICH FORMER PLAYER PAUL BREITNER SAYING:

“You, you will focus, you will be focused on Pep (Guardiola). Pep will work as our coach the same way he is doing right now, to prepare the team for the match of tomorrow, or for the semi-final of the German Cup next Tuesday against Borussia Dortmund, there will be no difference. Pep is 100 percent by Munich, and that’s it.”

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.

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.

Paul Breitner, Bayern Munich’s representative at the draw, said that at this stage of the competition, there is not much to choose between the teams but said that the German champions are ready to take on Barcelona.

“We have to realise that we are going to play Barcelona, and we have to realise, and we know that we have to demonstrate, to play, on the best level we can, the same we played last Tuesday against Porto in the first half, we have to play at this level, not just 45 minutes, but twice, or 90 minutes and then I think we will reach the final, but also Barcelona has to play at the best level they can do,” Breitner said.

“You, you will focus, you will be focused on Pep (Guardiola). Pep will work as our coach the same way he is doing right now, to prepare the team for the match of tomorrow, or for the semi-final of the German Cup next Tuesday against Borussia Dortmund, there will be no difference. Pep is 100 percent by Munich, and that’s it,” added the former German left-back.

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