Dante has warned his Bayern Munich teammates that Barcelona ‘will be desperate for revenge’ and that ‘they will do whatever it takes to level the tie’.
Barca go into the Champions League semi-final second leg at the Camp Nou with a 4-0 deficit to try and turn around.
“They will be very motivated and aggressive. We are in a good position, but we have to be vigilant,” Bayern centre-back Dante warned this week in Kicker.
“We have to stay focused to the end to get the qualification to the final.
“Barca will be desperate for revenge.
“They will do whatever it takes to level the tie, but we cannot let ourselves be surprised.
“How do we stop Lionel Messi? The key is to not wait to encounter him when he has the ball under control.
“You have to try and attack as soon as possible.”
