‘Bayern can score at Camp Nou’

Jupp Heynckes says that Bayern Munich can score away to Barcelona and that they are keen to prove the first leg was no fluke.

Bayern have made the trip out to the Camp Nou for this Champions League semi-final second leg, which they are 4-0 up going into.

“We have to take into account the rival,” began Heynckes at today’s pre-match Press conference.

“We have our philosophy on football and this season we have proved that Bayern is a great team playing top quality football.

“We have our culture and we are capable of scoring goals tomorrow at the Camp Nou.

“We can't think too much about the first-leg result. After the match we can evaluate things, but I cannot say which team is the better one.

“Barcelona have played at such a high level for so many years. Bayern want to prove that the match in Munich wasn't a one-off.”

The Bavarians are in with a chance of making the final for a third time in four seasons and a second consecutive time after last year’s defeat on their own ground to Chelsea.

“When you experience a final like we did against Chelsea, then you understand all the consequences.

“Some clubs give up, but everyone at Bayern reacted in a very positive way.

“We made changes, signed good players, modified some things, and strengthened the team spirit.”

Wednesday’s clash at Barca is a return to Spain for the 67-year-old, who has had spells in La Liga with Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao.

“When you coach big teams in Spain, you also incorporate that culture to understand everything better.

“I know I can return to Spain whenever I want. I won the Champions League with Real Madrid and I also had great achievements with Athletic.

“In Barcelona, there's a huge sporting culture, especially after the Olympics. It’s a wonderful city with a huge amount of culture, so I love being here.”
