Lahm acknowledged that Barcelona and Real Madrid have the edge over the other Champions League contenders at present, but feels that anything can happen in a “direct confrontation” as Bayern are desperate to qualify for the final at the Allianz Arena on May 19.
“Knowing that the final takes place at our own stadium, our dream is obviously to make it there,” Lahm stated to L’Equipe.
“Barcelona and Real Madrid appear to be on another level to the rest, but anything is possible in a direct confrontation if we're having a good day.”
The Germany international then looked ahead to the second leg of Bayern’s quarter-final tie against Olympique de Marseille, and stressed that it is crucial for FCB to grab the lead on Tuesday.
“I think that it will be very important for us to open the scoring.” Bayern recorded a 2-0 win at the Stade Velodrome last week.
