Are we completely discounting the other teams in the competition then?

He's Brazilian, so he's supporting his homeside squad.

It still won't change the fact that Bayern is a complete team (more complete than Chelsea). They'll win that tournament.

Overrated when it comes to the English media making them look like gods.

Unstable because they have some games where they trash their opposition, and in some their performance downgrades when they're supposed to be destroying teams given the amount of huge talent they have in their squad.

Rubbish! The English media don't even like Chelsea!! They are too busy being up the a*se of Manchester United! If you think differently please show me an example where the English media is making them look 'like gods' as you put it!! And as for your second point considering they currently sit 2nd in the league I suggest that with the exception of Arsenal all other English teams are far more 'unstable' as you put it - and that includes Manchester United, Manchester City, Spurs, Liverpool and Everton!!

Bayern would destroy Barca - I think they will cope with any South American team.

I for one most certainly do not underestimate South-American teams. But like another poster stated: there is SO much superb European football to see, that I just don't have the time to take South American football with it.

Just coming off injury, right? Ateltico have a strong offense with R Gaucho as playmaker and Jo up front, but Bayern is a beast this year...and last.

In fact, Atlético Mineiro is in a big crisis right now...

The midfielder Bernard (who played for Brazil's national team in the Confederations Cup) was one of the main players of Atlético in the conquest of the Libertadores Cup.

Bernard was sold by Atlético to the Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk for over 30 million dollars, but when the money arrived in Brazil, more than half of it was blocked by the Judiciary, due to tax debts that Atlético had to the federal government. So, Atlético now is without Bernard, and without the most part of the money!
