In the three-way fight for the two Round of 16 places on offer in Champions League Group F, Bayern know three points are a must in their home meeting with French side LOSC Lille on Wednesday evening (Live in English from 8.30 pm CET on FCB Web Radio). “We have to win," declared Franck Ribéry on the eve of the latest reunion with his former club, “we have to play like we did in Hamburg and take the three points."
With half the group programme completed, FCB are third in the group standings, although they are level on six points with Valencia and BATE Borisov, who face off in Spain in the parallel fixture. Following Bayern's narrow 1–0 victory in the north of France two weeks ago, Jerome Boateng said it was “even more important to follow that up at home in front of our own fans and collect the points."
