“?Bayern are used to dominating the league and performing well in the Champions League,” he told ?Bundesliga.com.
“They know what it is to win titles almost every year. They’re much more experienced than we are right now. Their players are older and still have a lot of quality, like Franck Ribery for instance. His career is closer to its end than its beginning, but he’s still playing at a very high level.

“We do not go to Dortmund as favourites, but as underdogs – for the first time in a long time.”
