Bayern Munich players have welcomed their Champions League quarterfinal draw against Manchester United.

Bayern say they go into the game without fear.

“The mood among the players during the draw was good,” revealed Dutch midfielder Mark van Bommel. “It's a very difficult draw, but a fantastic one too. Manchester are a leading European club, just like Bayern. It’s a shame we’re at home first."

Full-back Phillip Lahm is also looking forward to the challenge.

“It's a tough draw, a truly big name. We’ve been drawn against opponents who like to play football, which suits us fine. There’s obviously no way we’ll underestimate them. The most important thing is to keep a clean sheet in the first leg at home."
