Bayern will play Olympique Marseille in the Champions League quarter-finals, a manageable task on paper for the Bundesliga side. However, the tie will be far from easy, personalities in Munich warned. “We can take nothing for granted. We should try and score at their place," said chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “We'll have 60,000 spectators against us," said Franck Ribéry, who played at Stade Velodrome from 2005 to 2007.
Reaction to the quarter-final draw:
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: “We can be satisfied. We have a minor advantage by playing the first game in France, as we saw against Basel. But let me warn against thinking this will be easy. Dortmund lost to them twice. We can take nothing for granted. It would be nice if we could come away with a result from the first leg which pushes the door open. We should try and score at their place. We’d be well advised not to think about the second step, but instead focus totally on the quarter-final. The goal is the semi-final and we will have to work hard on that. Milan against Barcelona is the plum tie, between two top favourites. It means one will be knocked out."
