Bayern In Fight To The Finish With Barcelona

Bayern Munich will “battle to the end” as they bid to overhaul a 3-0 first-leg deficit in Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final with Barcelona.
The German champions lost the first leg of their quarter-final 3-1 in Porto but won the home leg 6-1.
And Bayern boss Pep Guardiola, who used to manage Barca, said: “The only way we can make the final is by playing better than Barcelona and doing what we did in the second half [of the first leg].
“Our only desire is try until the end.” The German champions are without wingers Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, who are both out for the season, while Barcelona are at full strength.
As well as missing key men Ribery and Robben, Bayern defender Holger Badstuber and left-back David Alaba are also currently sidelined.
Including a penalty shootout Bayern have lost four games in a row, while Barcelona have won their last eight, keeping seven consecutive clean sheets.
