Robert Lewandowski is confident about winning the Champions League with Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich resume their champions league campaign with a trip to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. The defending Bundesliga champions will be facing Chelsea in the Champions League for the first time since suffering a defeat in the finals during the 2011/12 campaign.
Die Roten have been prolific in the Champions League after winning all their group games. These wins also include two thumping victories against Tottenham Hotspurs. After facing disappointment in the knockout stages for the past six seasons, Die Roten are well placed to have a deep run in the competition.
There are few players left from the 2013 squad that won a historic treble. Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller, and Javi Martinez are entering the twilight years of their career. The trio will be hoping to repeat this feat before bringing down curtains to their illustrious career.
Robert Lewandowski was on the losing side in 2013 final as Die Roten clinched a narrow victory against Borussia Dortmund. In a lengthy interview with Guardian, Lewandowski admitted that Bayern would soon reach the finals of CL and bring the trophy back to the Allianz Arena.
“The players feel more confident because they know what the trainer (Hansi Flick) wants from them.”
“The communication is much better. I still believe that one day we will play in the Champions League final and we will win it.”
More from Bayern Strikes
Bayern’s success in the Champions League will heavily depend on Lewandowski’s performances in the knockout stages. After sorting out his future at the club by signing a new deal, the Polish striker has been in sensational form this season. He has already scored 38 goals across all competitions for Rekordmeister.
Lewandowski has always been criticised for not turning up in big games, but things have been completely different this term. His overall play has improved, helping him to influence games even when he is not finding the back of the net. Along with being a tremendous finisher, the Pole is dropping deep and creating chances for other forwards.
Apart from Lewandowski, there are more positive things about Die Roten squad that can help them to do well in CL this year. This team is not the best in the world, but on their day, they have the quality to beat any team in the world.
