Fabregas: Barcelona wary of Bayern Munich strike force
Barcelona news: Cesc Fabregas praises Bayern Munich's attacking force ahead of Champions League encounter
Cesc Fabregas scored the only goal in Barcelona's 1-0 win against Levante in La Liga last weekend.
Yet, with Lionel Messi getting back to full form, there is no confirmation as to whether the 25-year-old Spaniard will be given a position in Barca’s starting line-up against Bayern Munich on Tuesday at the Allianz Arena.
Regardless, Fabregas knows that whether he plays or not, there are still a lot of skilful players within the squad out of which manager Tito Vilanova could form a strong side to resist the Germans.
Nevertheless, even though Barcelona have reasons to consider themselves powerful enough for their German opposition, Fabregas still has his eyes set on Bayern’s key players—among which are Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben.
The former Arsenal skipper praised both the Frenchman and the Dutch forward, underlining that their potentials are not to be ignored.
Fabregas told Barca TV: “They [Bayern] may not play counterattacking football as Real Madrid, for example, but they know how to, and if Robben and Ribery get the space [they need], they can do you a lot of damage.”
Fabregas further emphasized the efficiency of Bayern Munich’s attacking play: “They are really strong on the wings and their forward line.
“For example, Mandzukic… and Mario Gómez is on fire… and I really like Muller.”
Mario Gomez and Frank Ribery were both on target at the weekend, while Arjen Robben made an assist as Bayern Munich dismantled Hannover 6-1.
The Bavarians are undoubtedly in top form at the moment, having scored a total of 16 goals in their last three matches in all competitions - with Gomez grabbing six goals for himself.
