Bayern Munich players, Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller feel they should be confident of defeating Chelsea in the last 16 of the UCL.
With the German club experiencing an improved form since Hansi Flick took over temporarily, Neuer feels his team can be quite sure of getting something from the tie.
His words, “We’re looking forward to London, where we’ve had some good experiences,”
“They’re a dangerous team, who we have to take very seriously and approach with concentration.
“Obviously, we want to get through to the next round. I think we can go into the games with a healthy level of confidence. We’re happy with the draw: it’s against an attractive and good team.”
Thomas Muller also said that he feels good about the draw, even if he knows Chelsea won’t be an easy opposition.
He said, “It’s clear that you’re not going to get any small teams in the Champions League last 16. We’re fairly confident. I’m feeling good about the draw.
“Chelsea have players who can hurt us, though. They have individuals in attack whose qualities are well-known.
“But it’s about the team performance, not individuals. My good feeling is based on us feeling very happy as a team at the moment. We want to be the favourites and justify that.”
Kimmich added, “We’ll go into the games with confidence. It’s still a long way off, so we can’t yet say what form the teams will be in, but I believe we’ll go into it as favourites and I’m confident we’ll progress.
“They’re difficult to assess; they’re not really on a consistent run at the moment.”
