Lionel Messi: Barcelona will have to be at 110 percent to get past Bayern Munich

Lionel Messi is wary of the threat posed by Bayern Munich and, of course, by Pep Guardiola. He knows the Catalan coach like few others and he knows that Barcelona “will have to be at 110 percent” if they want to play in the Champions League final in Berlin on June 6. The Argentine crack, however, is confident of getting past the Germans and hopes to participate in the goals — something he did not manage against Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain, despite playing well.

It is the first time since 2006-07 that Messi has failed to score in the knockout rounds of the competition, although that can still change against Bayern. Barça will need their No.10, who has scored eight goals in the Champions League this season, on form to get past Pep’s side. And Messi himself has recognised that on social media.

“We have a really tough Champions League semi-final ahead of us,” he wrote. The first leg will be on May 6 at Camp Nou. Messi has the date marked on his calendar for a game which Luis Enrique’s side will be desperate to win.
