Bayern ready for anybody in UCL draw

Bayern Munich duo Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller both revealed that they don't mind whom they are paired with in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

The Bavarian giants finished runners-up in Group D behind Atletico Madrid after collecting 12 points out of a possible 18 and as a result will get a less favourable draw against either Barcelona, Arsenal, Leicester City, Napoli, Monaco or Juventus.

However, despite losing two of their group games against Atletico and Rostov, the Bayern pair insist they do not mind who they come up against. 

"I'm relaxed about it," Hummels told the club's official website. "I haven't played before. Perhaps, it will be one of the best teams or possibly a supposedly easier one. It doesn't really matter to me."

Muller reiterated his compatriot's sentiments, saying they boast the quality to lift their sixth Champions League trophy.

"We'll take it as it comes," The German forward added. "We finished top last season and drew Juventus who were champions of Italy five or six times on the bounce.

"I think we're in a good position if we can produce the goods. Never mind who the opponents are." 

The draw gets underway on Monday, December 12.
