Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has rated Bayern Munich’s chances of beating Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night.

Muller said: “Statistically speaking, the match against City is probably the hardest draw we could have got in my opinion.

“If we played 10 games against each other the odds would probably be very even – and at Bayern, those odds are not to our liking.

“You don’t see such a strong influence of a coach on the direction of a team as much as you do with Guardiola. Teams coached by him are a goal threat with every attack. They always move the ­opponent around the pitch and it takes great strength to cope with that.

“In the end, we will do ­everything to be ahead of them after two games.”
