Bayern Munich will look to play their own game against Manchester United at the Allianz Arena tomorrow, skipper Philipp Lahm has insisted.

The Bavarians are on their worst run in three years, failing to secure a single win in three consecutive matches in all competitions.

Moreover, the loss against Augsburg during the weekend has put the team under pressure going into the crucial second leg against David Moyes' men in the Champions League.

The tie as it stands now is well balanced with a 1-1 scoreline and even a goalless draw on Wednesday will be enough to see the defending champions making it to their second consecutive semi-final in the tournament.


"We've got to do what we always do; we have to make the most of our possession", Lahm told UEFA's official site.

"[United] are very good on the counter-attack [but] tomorrow we want to play our game, have the ball and score goals."

The 30-year-old feels that Manchester United are a world-class team, but thinks that his side will have the opportunity to create chances to score goals.

"Manchester United are world class, with great history and big, experienced players.

"We have to play good football, in attack and in defence. We did not give them many chances in Manchester and we have to play like that again.

"It was difficult for us in Manchester, but we worked well as a team in defence", Lahm added.
