Pep Guardiola says Bayern have to play better than they did at Camp Nou last week. / UEFA.COM

After Barça's 3-0 win in the first leg, Pep Guardiola spoke to the media before Tuesday's second leg at Allianz Arena in Munich. The Bayern Munich coach is aware of the advantage that Barça has, but he trusts the quality and potential of his players: "We can only play our game, not complain about the first leg."

Here are the highlights of what Guardiola had to say:

"We are down three goals against one of the best teams in Europe in the last 15 years, but we have to try."

"We have to attack more than we did in Barcelona. We have to control the game."

"We have to defend well too. With the strikers they have, every turnover becomes a counterattack."

"I think the players have shown they want to be in the final. It's a big challenge and we'll try our best."

"I'm the coach, I'm a realist, and I'll never say we don't have a chance. We have to play with our hearts and our heads."

Thomas Müller and Rafinha also spoke to the press. Here are the highlights:

Müller

"We want to turn the page. We want to get to the game already. In football everything is possible. We have a plan and we'll put it into practice, but we know it will not be easy. "

"We've had many injured players, but we also have the depth to replace them. With these same players we came back against Porto."

"Both Lewandowski as I look for a direct path to the goal, we understand each other very well."

Rafinha

"At Camp Nou we played very well for [most of the game], we have to keep that in mind. We know that we're very strong with our stadium and our fans."

"Everyone knows how good Messi is. We can try to keep him from scoring, but the problem is that any Barça player can hurt you."

"The coach decides the system. For me it will not be a problem if we play with three or four defenders, it won't matter."
