Barcelona play Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final and the winners here might be favourites to go all the way.

The Catalan outfit boast one of the world’s greatest-ever players in Lionel Messi, who is still capable of beating teams by himself, but Barca’s task will be made far easier if they find the right system to get the most out of Messi as well as their other talents.

Bayern look unstoppable at times though, with pace and guile throughout the team and their own goalscoring force in Robert Lewandowski having already hit 13 goals in the competition this season.
