On Friday, Bayern München were drawn against Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-final stage of the Champions League.


In an official statement made by the club, Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has shared his thoughts on the match-up against the French champions, who the Bavarians beat 1-0 in last season's final.

"Paris are a very good team. They're second in their league at the moment, but it’s a challenge at the highest level for us," said Salihamidzic.

"They have a new coach in [Mauricio] Pochettino. He's a good coach and doing good work. They have top players, and in [Kylian] Mbappé a striker, who has it all and is very dangerous."

The winner of the tie will be up against either Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund in the semi-finals.
