Can they still qualify? Bayern Munich have scored 39 goals in their last 12 Champions League games, a rate of 3. We have to look for another way to compete against them because of the enthusiasm they will have, so we will have to be intelligent and control our game.
Now to correct that, we need a great performance. What we want to do is play up to our level -- that will be needed because we play against a big team.
The confidence level is there, the needed result is there as well -- we know exactly what is required because a is not even a good result. To score goals, we have to attack.
