Cape Town - With the Bundesliga title already in the bag, Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller is looking ahead to their Champions League semi-final against Barcelona.
Bayern head to Spain for the first leg of the tie at Camp Nou on Wednesday, when manager Pep Guardiola will be hoping to get one over on his former club.
"It's very special of course but I'm not flipping out over it," Muller told the club's website.
"A Champions League semi-final isn't a completely unknown situation for me nowadays - it is my fifth in the last six seasons after all.
"We know all about their strengths. They're world-class, especially up front. For a defender, it's not the most comfortable situation to be facing Messi when he's dribbling.
"But we're geared up. The coach knows this team better than any other. He'll give us a game plan, but the rest is up to us players."
Bayern won the competition in 2013, when their route to the final included a 7-0 aggregate win over Barca at the same stage of the competition.
"It was a terrific experience," Muller said.
"We were brilliant that night and made the world of football sit up and take notice. I'll definitely run out with a positive feeling on Wednesday."
Barca have warmed up for the clash with 6-0 and 8-0 wins over Getafe and Cordoba respectively to retain their lead at the top of La Liga.
Bayern have cooled down after claiming the trophy, getting dumped out of the league cup by Borussia Dortmund and most recently losing 2-0 to Bayer Leverkusen.
"We've also won big this season, and even without recent results we're quite aware that Barcelona are one of the best teams in the world," added the 25-year-old Germany international.
"They've kicked two other great teams out of the Champions League. But I'm still optimistic and I believe we can go there and win.
"If we're badly beaten and get knocked out, our fans and the media aren't going to go: 'OK, it was Barcelona, nothing to see here.' No, we all have our expectations. We're FC Bayern. We won't be afraid."
