Bayern Munich On "Full Power" Againts Mighty Lyon

Jürgen Klinsmann is adamant that Bayern Munich will be pulling out all the stops to beat Lyon in order to claim top spot in Group F of the Champions League.

Klinsmann: No Bayern B-Team Against Lyon
Both sides are already assured their spots in the knockout rounds thanks to their respective wins on Matchday 5, but Klinsmann insists that Wednesday's clash will be much more than just a glorified friendly.

“It’s very important we win the group,” he said looking ahead to the round of 16. "The statistics prove it - by playing the second leg at home, the chances of getting through are bigger. It is why the best Bayern team will be aligned at Lyon.

“We’re approaching the match with plenty of confidence," he added. "The team’s come together so well, we’re sure we can cause Lyon problems in front of their home crowd.”

Despite his best intentions, Klinsmann has been hit with two late withdrawals of key players. Centre back Lucio has pulled out ill, while midfielder Zé Roberto is ruled out with a slight muscle strain.
