Zoran Mamić, Dinamo coach
It is a privilege to be at this stage of the competition and to play against a giant club like Bayern. We are aware of Bayern's quality and we need to play well above our abilities if we want to be a threat. We gave away the first three goals against Bayern in Munich and we need to be more focused. We need to be much better in every area to achieve anything good.
Josep Guardiola, Bayern coach
I have never met a player who didn't want to prove himself and didn't want to win. I want my players to give their all. The prestige is very important for the club, not to mention the money garnered for wins. After the first match against Dinamo I learned more about their team and watched their other matches. They have two good wingers, left and right.
