Leon Goretzka insists Bayern Munich have no plan for Lionel Messi

Bayern Munich seems to be confident of beating Barcelona on Friday according to Leon Goretzka.

Lionel Messi who has 31 goals this season is eyeing his fifth Champions League title with Barcelona.

Bayern Munich thrashed Premier League giants, Chelsea, last Saturday to book a spot in the Champions League quarter-final.

Bayern midfielder Leon Goretzka urges his team to focus on other Barcelona players who can cause nuisance barring Lionel Messi.

“I think we can beat any opponent,” he told reporters in the Portuguese capital.

“But nevertheless, we know that waiting for us are a very good team with world class players.

“We’re going into the game though, with our chests out – something that we’ve developed over these past nine months.

“We don’t have a specific tactic [for Messi]. We know that there are other stars playing at Barcelona, so we will be ready for everyone.

“This is a knockout game so we have to go into the match with the right mentality.

“Look at the Leverkusen game yesterday. That annoyed me because they actually played a good game but were eliminated because of the first 20 minutes – I had the feeling they would have progressed over two legs.”

Barcelona face Bundesliga winner Bayern Munich on Saturday for their quarter-final Champions League clash.
