Predicting a 7-0 win. Julio Cesar will be haunted by these players since he let in those 7 goals nearly 2 years ago for Brazil. Hopefully Boateng/Martinez returns for this leg in time

Mehmet Scholl once offered a mixtape CD to Oliver Kahn. Kahn replied: Do you want me to shoot myself? Keep your crap to yourself.

I hope our players don't make the mistake of underestimating the opposition. We need a good result in the first leg because the second one will be away.

It's just two weeks away. Considering Boateng didn't even start team training, even a second leg return seems a bit far-fetched. We should hope for him to return for the semis. That's where we'll really need him. However, I really expect Javi to be back. He's been fit for some time now and I wouldn't be very surprised for him to be on the bench tomorrow.

Happy about this draw, but MUTU is right, a good first leg result is a must, especially considering our most recent match in Portugal...

Our players need to stay focused. They are seemingly a weaker team than ours, but surprises can happen.

It's Pep's job to pick up the right team, keep solid behind (to avoid conceding fluke goals), and help the players remain focused.

As soon as I saw the draw I thought exactly the same. We tend to fall into that arrogance trap against such teams very often !

Our players are aware that the worst opponent are themselves. They need to find their best football for beat a good team.

It's a home match. We have as many options except at CB (by the time of that game only Badstuber/Boateng are missing) as we had years ago.
The last teams that could be put in the same box as Benfica have all has nightmares in our stadium.
Without any arrogance I expect a trashing. Even with Robben only being a possibility from the bench most likely.

Bayern in the CL (quarter-finalists)
1. Most goals (25 vs RM's 23)
1. Best shot accuracy (53% vs RM's )
2. Most shots (130 vs RM's 135)
1. Most assists (20 vs RM's 13)
2. Most created chances (138 vs RM's 143)
1. Best passing accuracy (90,5 vs PSG's 89,8)
5. Most dribbles (92 vs Barca's 112)
1. Most possession (71,6 vs. Barca's 68,33)
8. Best tackle success ratio (49,58% vs PSG's 55,2%)
5. Fewest goals conceded (7 vs PSG's 3)
3. Fewest allowed shots (81 vs RM's 74)

Interesting how PSG have allowed arouns 25 more shots but only 3 more on goal and also conceded 4 less.

Correct. We last played in the last 16 in 1996, when we won the UEFA Cup.
We also played in the last 16 in 1982, when we lost the European Cup final to Aston Villa.
The first and only other time we played was in the quarter final of 1976, when we won our third consecutive European Cup.

We've also reached the final every time we've eliminated Juve, btw. (2009/10 and 2013) :) We played them twice in the group stages of 2004 and 2005, but neither team was eliminated.
