Luis Suarez says “anything is possible” for Barcelona ahead of their Champions League quarter-final clash against Bayern Munich.

The Uruguay international was on target in Barca’s 3-1 win over Napoli at the Camp Nou on Saturday that sent Quique Setien’s side into the final eight tournament in Portugal.

Barca will now take on Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, who thumped Chelsea 7-1 on aggregate in the last 16, with Suarez offering his thoughts on the game after the match.

“Against Bayern in a one-off game anything is possible. They are one of the candidates to win this, but so are we,” he said.

“We spent two weeks preparing really well against a rival we knew would be very tough after what we saw in the first leg.

“As the game matured we created more and more chances and went 3-0 up. I guess when they went to 3-1 it gave us something to think about. So in the second half we knew they’d try and pressure us but the way we ‘managed’ the match was very positive.”
