Thomas Muller says there is not a lot to choose between Bayern Munich and Barcelona and the forward insists his side will be ready if the pair meet in the Champions League.

Both clubs have been in impressive form this season and the pair are on course to retain their respective league titles, while European glory is also firmly on their minds.

The Catalans won the Champions League last season after defeating Juventus in the final and that success added to their league and Copa del Rey trophies.

Barcelona ousted German giants Bayern at the semi-final stage of the competition last year and they are 2.63 favourites to retain their title in this campaign.

However, Muller insists his side will have a big say in the destination of the trophy and he is looking forward to the potential of playing Luis Enrique’s men in the last-eight.

He told Sport1: “You can see every week how good they are, but also you can see our games and say: ‘Yes, they are also very strong.’ If we find ourselves up against Barcelona again, we will be prepared.”

The 26-year-old has once again been in good goalscoring form for the Bundesliga outfit, having bagged 17 in 25 league games, and he is pretty much guaranteed a spot in Germany’s squad for Euro 2016 in France this summer.

Bayern are yet to book their place in the next round of the Champions League and they head into the second-leg against Juventus with the scores locked at 2-2.

The Old Lady are big outsiders at 7.50 to win the second-leg at the Allianz Arena, a draw is priced at 4.33 while the hosts are the firm 1.44 favourites.
