Bayern München coach Niko Kovac believes his team could go all the way in the Champions League this season.

Asked if Bayern are in contention to win the Champions League, Kovac told Sky:

"I think so, yes."

"That's what we're working on here, that's a goal for us. But everything has to fit. We need a bit of luck when it comes to our draw, injuries and hitting form at the right moment, that's clear."

Bayern were beaten by Liverpool in the round of 16 of last year's tournament. The Bavarians begin their European campaign this season with a home game against Red Star Belgrade tonight.
