Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola says he is not worried about who his side face in the last four of the Champions League, following their stunning win over FC Porto.

Having lost the first leg of their quarter-final 3-1 in Portugal, Bayern were under pressure to put in a big performance in the Allianz Arena on Tuesday evening.

We are very happy with our performance…but we can play even better.

And they responded superbly to the challenge, sweeping Porto aside 6-1 in Bavaria to progress to the semi-finals with a 7-4 aggregate success.

That left Guardiola planning for what will surely be another big occasion, with Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Monaco the other sides currently left in the competition.

He told “I don’t care too much who our next opponents will be. We’ll try our best whether it’s Real Madrid, Barca, Atletico, Juventus or Monaco, so it doesn’t matter.

“We are very happy with our performance, particularly since we’ve struggled to score goals in recent weeks, but we can play even better.

“Even after the game in Porto I felt we could do it. You always make up the difference in your head and try to analyse your opponents.

“Porto are a very good team, but they were not able to reach their level.”

Bayern are chasing a sixth European Cup title, having been crowned champions three seasons in a row between 1974 and 1976.

Their fourth triumph came in 2001 when they defeated Valencia on penalties in the San Siro and in 2013 they edged out Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund 2-1 at Wembley.

Bayern can be backed at 2.75 to lift the trophy again this season, with holders Real Madrid 4.00 and Barcelona 2.75.
