Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has not conceded in 748 minutes of football, but is expecting to be a bit more busy against Roma than he was in Saturday's 6-0 Bundesliga win against SV Werder Bremen. "We know Roma have made a good start to the season and that it will be difficult to win there. I am happy to be going there, because I have never played in the Olimpico Stadium. I expect Roma to have shots on goal. It will be an entirely different game, a difficult task for us, but generally speaking we go there to win!"

Bayern are scheduled to meet the pope after their game at Roma and Manuel Neuer said: "I believe we will wear our suits and will meet him in appropriate attire. Unfortunately we are not going to see him before the game, or we could ask for some support from up there for the match."

Neymar ahead of FC Barcelona's meeting with AFC Ajax:

It will be a very difficult and a very important match. We always play to win but I believe Ajax to be a great team both in defense and in attack. We will have to work hard to win.

For me Messi is the best player in the world, and I am happy to play with him. But Luis Suárez is there among the best too and I am sure he will bring many good things to our team.

Tomorrow we have a match we have to win, and only after that we will start thinking about El Clásico. What is more important for me - scoring tomorrow or scoring at the Santiago Bernabéu? Both.

BATE midfielder Aleksandr Karnitski ahead of his side's game against Shakhtar:

I do not think we will lack spirit after the Soligorsk game [a 4-1 victory over rivals FC Shakhtyor Soligorsk on Thursday in which Karnitski scored a hat-trick]. With a full stadium, we will not have to look for extra motivation, that is for sure. We will be on a high for this game. The spirits are high after three wins since the Athletic game - you could say we are in the zone. [Shakhtar goalkeeper Andriy] Pyatov should not feel too relaxed as I can hit them from any distance [Rakitski is known for his shooting ability, and scored one from 40 metres against Soligorsk, and another from 70 meters last year].
