Munich - Barcelona's Argentinian midfielder Javier Mascherano said the visitors will not hold back as they chase a first away win against Bayern.

"We will attack because we do not know how to play any other way - it's the club philosophy," said the 30-year-old defensive midfielder.

"To reach the final in Berlin, we will have to play the perfect game, because Bayern will demand it of us.

"We are very competitive, we want to win titles - we are 90 minutes away from the final, which was one of our goals before the season started.

"We will do everything to fulfil our dream.

"If you get to this stage, every mistake can be punished - we have to take it step by step.

"I expect a hungry Bayern team, right from the start.

"They will try to score, we know how they play at home, but we are prepared for everything and nothing will surprise us."

Bayern Munich host Barcelona at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday. Kick-off is at 20:45.
