(SOUNDBITE) (German) BAYERN MUNICH COACH NIKO KOVAC, SAYING: "It is a highlight game, tomorrow is about us wanting to reach the quarter finals.

It will be a very difficult game.

There is always a lot of pressure when it is a knockout game but I don't see this pressure as something negative, I see it as positive.

Tomorrow the whole world will be watching, tomorrow's game is an absolute highlight, everyone is looking forward to it.

Not just the players and the trainers but the media and the fans, so I don't think that either side has a real advantage." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (German) BAYERN MUNICH COACH NIKO KOVAC, SAYING: "I can't say.

Tomorrow there won't be a 0-0.

We want to win it and that is how we will approach the game.

You cannot rely twice on a goalless draw to advance." 4.

WHITE FLASH 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (German) BAYERN MUNICH CAPTAIN AND GOALKEEPER, MANUEL NEUER, SAYING: "Tomorrow is a final, so anything could happen.

The two top teams are going up against each other.

We saw how it played out in the first leg game.

Everybody played extremely tightly, nobody wanted to make a mistake and everyone wanted to take a good result into the second leg.

And as we have the game on home turf tomorrow the Allianz Arena will of course be on fire and we will try to win this very important game as it has been a while since we have beaten a bigger team or an international one at home so is about time we show again what we can do." STORY: Bayern Munich's David Alaba and Kingsley Coman have been ruled fit for the Champions League last 16 second leg against Liverpool on Wednesday (March 13), coach Niko Kovac said.

The pair had been racing to recover from injuries after their goalless first leg draw at Anfield last month.

French winger Coman, who had nursed a hamstring injury, has also recovered but it is not yet clear whether he will start.

Bayern, who will be without suspended Joshua Kimmich, took over at the top of the Bundesliga from Borussia Dortmund with a 6-0 demolition of VfL Wolfsburg on Saturday for their 12th win in the last 13 league games.

They are in fine form and Kovac said he did not expect another goalless draw against the English side.

Bayern may have been scoring lots of goals lately but they have also been wasteful up front, the Croat said, hoping his team will improve their finishing in front of a fiery home crowd.
