I guess I shouldn't underestimate Inter, they seem like a very solid team. Still I feel like Dortmund have the edge, I see more players with the "X factor" in BVB, players like Sancho/Reus/Hummels that can make the difference but we'll see. I guess Inter have Lukaku and maybe Icardi if he stays, that's potentially a very strong attacking duo.

oshua Kimmich: I'm especially happy that we have the Champions League finalists in the group. Against Tottenham we have a good chance to prove that we can compete internationally at this top level. We as FC Bayern must have the aspiration to finish this group in the first place.

Thomas Müller: Tottenham is a very interesting opponent that I've never played against. In Piraeus, there will be a big atmosphere. Against Belgrade, I'm looking forward to meeting my former Germany teammate Marko Marin. All in all, our goal must be to qualify first.

Manuel Neuer: I think the race for first and second place will be between us and Tottenham, even though Olympiacos and Red Star are good teams. Spurs have a good team and showed that last year. But I'm also looking forward to the other 2 teams, especially the away atmosphere.

Niko Kovač on the draw: This is a very interesting group, I'm looking forward to these opponents and also to the stadiums away, which promise big atmospheres. I am confident that we will make it to the knockout round.

Heung-Min Son: Bayern will be special because they are one of the biggest teams in Europe, you’re always excited to play in this competition against these teams. We need to remember and learn from what we did last year.

Hasan Salihamidžić on the draw: We can live with that group. Our expectation is to qualify for the knockout stages as group winners, but we shouldn't underestimate any team.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on the draw: I think we can be satisfied with the draw. It's important to start with big focus and motivation and treat each team with respect.

Pedro Martins, Olympiacos coach:
Everything can happen in football, but we have been drawn in a very tough group. Bayern are among the 10 best teams in the world while Tottenham were finalists last season. We will do our best to qualify, however these are high hurdles ahead.

I don’t get it... They’re basically saying the same...

Maybe it’s the bad translation?!

You can interpret Mueller comments as either qualify in first place or that the primary objective is to qualify. Dumbledore is assuming the latter I think.

Yeah but that would be wrong... It’s merely badly translated...

Is it just me or do the Portuguese teams always have the easiest draws?
