Ancelotti said after the draw today: “Bayern are one of the strongest sides amongst the top eight, they have a great tradition and are a very physical side.
“They had some difficulties during the winter months, but then were able to eliminate Real Madrid. It will be a very balanced tie as they are one of the hardest teams to face.
“They have a very good Coach [Ottmar Hitzfeld] and he has proved his qualities in the two-legged match with Real. However, I am glad we didn’t draw Roma or Manchester United.”
