Bayern are best team in last eight, says Mueller

18 March 2015, 17:30

Berlin - Bayern Munich will be the team to beat when the draw for the Champions League's quarter-finals is made on Friday, according to their Germany star Thomas Mueller.

Pep Guardiola's Bayern threw down a marker for their European rivals when they hammered Shakhtar Donetsk 7-0 in Munich last week in the last 16, second leg clash, having been held to a goalless draw in Ukraine.

The 2013 Champions League winners are eager to play in the June 6 final at Berlin's Olympic Stadium and Mueller, who scored twice in the Donetsk rout, said Bayern will be one of the top names out of the hat when the draw for the last eight is made in Nyon, Switzerland.

"We were strong in the group phase and put down a marker in the last 16 which certainly made all the other teams sit up and take notice," the 25-year-old Mueller told Sport Bild.

"From what I have seen so far, we are the most superior team in the Champions League this season."

The quarter-finals will be played over two legs on April 14/15 and 21/22 with the teams drawn first out of the hat hosting.

Guardiola led Bayern to the German league and cup double last season on his first season in charge, but his side were sent crashing out of the Champions League semi-finals after a 4-0 drubbing at home by eventual winners Real Madrid after losing 1-0 in Spain.
