"The thrashing of Barca was crazy, it was fantastic"

Manuel Neuer still can't believe Bayern Munich's 8-2 win over Barcelona. The German keeper, in the buildup to the Lyon match, recalled how he experienced those minutes in Lyon.

In the Champions League quarter-finals, Bayern Munich hammered Barcelona in Lisbon in a recital for the Germans, especially in attack. Neuer, from his goal net, enjoyed every passage of play from his team... and he acknowledged it in an interview with the club's official media channels.

"Sometimes it happens to me that after playing Champions League games that end very late I can't sleep well. The next morning I got up early and rode my bike a few times before breakfast. Obviously it was crazy what happened and what we experienced. You go over in your head every passage of play, every goal... It's a shame because we couldn't celebrate with our fans. It's sad because it would have been nice to celebrate it together", the goalie acknowledged.

"The Barca thing was something fantastic. I think you really realise what you've accomplished when you slow down at night, rest in bed and think about everything that happened", he added.

The key to that hammering and Bayern's great moment was their work: "We train intensively because it is the only time we can improve. We train hard because we don't have days off. So we meet at the hotel and talk. That's also important for our play".

The next step is Lyon: "In the world of football, everything goes very fast. You can't relax and think, 'Wow, what we've achieved'. No, we have to take the next step and move on. We have to stay awake against Lyon and not get too confident. We're doing very well mentally, physically and morally".
