Facts about the tie
— Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) 18 March 2016
Logic suggests that Benfica will approach the first leg in Munich cautiously but as we saw from Juventus on Wednesday, there can be reward for going against the grain. Bayern are prone to conceding on the counterattack and a quick, technically strong Benfica will see an opportunity. The onus is on Bayern to get a result to take to Portugal, not least due to the negative experience at this stage in Porto last season – a 3-1 reverse. Philip Röber
Xabi Alonso, Bayern midfielder
"We have learned from the experience of last year against Porto – at this stage everyone is difficult [Bayern lost 3-1 before winning the return 6-1]. Of course there are bigger names, but we have to focus on our tie; you can't take anything for granted. We came through a tough tie against Juventus and need to keep going. We have to respect Benfica, but we have plenty of time to analyse them."

I think it's a good draw for us but Benfica have a great team and some fine players. Their stadium is superb and they have fantastic supporters.
Faith paired us with Benfica! At this stage there are no weak teams! We will do everything to make our dreams come true! @ChampionsLeague

We're looking forward to it although it won't be easy: Benfica won both their round of 16 matches against Zenit and deserved to get through. They're dangerous.

Together we are capable of achieving anything. We've proved before that we can do what others thought was impossible.
