Bayern will beat Barca, but then lose to Dortmund. I think that Jurgen Klopp knows that Dortmund need to establish themselves as a big team, and other teams need to be wary of them. Dormund can beat Real, the home leg at Dortmund will take it out of Real, but there is that chance Mourinho will mess with Klopp's mind. All in all, the tie could go anyway as it stands, but I think the more likely is Dortmund. Then we go to the Bayern tie with Barca; Bayern will be eager to win the Champions League after getting to the final then being knocked out on quite a few occasions. The league is no more a worry for Bayern, they can rest players and just focus now on Barca. Tito Vilanova won't be able to handle the pressure when it comes down to it imo, he doesn't have the mind to be able to make very quick decisions in these sort of circumstances. We saw that Messi changes Barca, not saying they're a one man team, but I reckon if Bayern can handle Messi they should have the tie under control. Barca's defense hasn't been amazing recently, and Bayern's attack has. A lot of goals is what we should see over the 2 legs.
