Ahead of their Champions League clash with Barcelona Tuesday, Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller said the match will be interesting even as he added that the Bundesliga side will be hoping to emerge victorious.
Müller said that the way teams in the Bundesliga and Champions League play are different and playing against Barcelona should be very interesting.
“We want to prevail in the duels, and we want to be active when we lose the ball. The game will be open”, Müller said. “In the Bundesliga we recently played against opponents who defended well. I think tomorrow it will be a game that neutral fans will like.”
The Champions League is probably the best way to introduce neutral fans to the game…and the best way to light a fire under players to perform better: “There are games that attract more attention, like CL games in San Siro or against Barcelona. That’s an extra motivation,” Müller said. “The attackers might run the extra yard that they might not do in the Bundesliga. It’s sometimes like that.”
“When top European teams meet, everyone is highly motivated”, Müller continued. “Of course, we are aware that Barcelona had a great start to the season. They already scored a lot of goals. I like them. We will push our limits to win the game tomorrow.”
