Bayern are also drawing diagrams - this is how they will tame Messi

Bayern (Munich) are also working hard on their tactics for the upcoming hot duel against Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge shared how he believes the team can deal with the biggest threat - Lionel Messi. Leo is a footballer who must be followed very carefully, while staying a little time and enjoying his game. He wants to have fun on the field. But if you can intelligently and tactically exclude him from the game, then you have good prerequisites for success, the former striker told Bild. `I have great respect for Messi, ` Rummenigge continued. `He has something that perhaps no one else on the planet has. `Leo is able to decide each match on his own. He also proved it against Napoli on Saturday. The meeting between the two giants is on August 14 in Lisbon. In general, Calais is excited about the way the season ended in the Champions League. This format is like a ticking bomb. The biggest thrill for the fans is this scheme with matches of direct elimination. Based on experience, I can say that in two meetings on an exchange visit, the better one always prevails. But in a clash, anything can happen - both to overcome a stronger opponent and to lose to a weaker one, Rummenigge continued. The director of the Bavarians assured that the club is ready to part with Thiago Alcantara, but only if someone pays the necessary amount for him. The Spaniard is expected to move to Liverpool. Rummenigge also confirmed that Philippe Coutinho will leave after the end of his lease because Bayern cannot afford to buy him out.

Barcelona`s plan to overcome Bayern

For the final, the boss revealed that he spoke again with FIFA President Canni Infantino about the possible organization of a poll for the Golden Ball. After France Football officially announced that there would be no such vote this year, Munich felt disadvantaged because they thought Robert Lewandowski was the favorite to win the award. FIFA is seriously considering giving such a prize, Rummenigge assured.
