Van der Vaart dismisses Bayern´s Euro hopes

18 April 2013 14:13

Rafael van der Vaart says Bayern Munich do not stand a chance against Barcelona in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Van der Vaart and his club Hamburg were on the wrong end of a 9-2 defeat against Bayern in the Bundesliga last month, yet he feels the German champions do not have what it takes to deal with Lionel Messi and his team-mates.

"Bayern do not have a chance against Barcelona. When both sides meet, Bayern will only have 30 percent possession or so. Barca always have the ball. Their system is unbelievable," the former Real Madrid and Tottenham playmaker told Sport Bild.

"There is one player who makes the difference between Bayern and Barcelona and that's Messi.

"The Bundesliga has reached new heights this season and is the most interesting league in my opinion. I do not think Bayern have a chance against Barca, though."

The first leg between Bayern and Barcelona takes place at the Allianz Arena on April 23.
