Lahm, Thomas Muller and Mario Gotze all believe the German giants must be at their best to get the better of the Premier League champions when they meet in the Champions League
Philipp Lahm has warned his Bayern Munich team-mates that they must be at their very best to beat Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday.
The two sides have been drawn into Group E along with Roma and CSKA Moscow and face each other at the Allianz Arena.
Ahead of the clash, Bayern captain Lahm insists his side must to up their game when they take on the Premier League champions.
“We’ll need to find another gear on Wednesday,” Lahm told the club’s official website.
“Manchester City are an absolute top team, but obviously, when FC Bayern play at home, we expect to win.”
Thomas Muller echoed the former Germany international’s remarks, stating: “We want to make a good start, [but we need] an excellent team performance.”
