Thomas Muller is hopefulRobert Lewandowski can state his case as the best all-round attacker right now when Bayern Munich face off against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Bundesliga champions will now face Barcelona in the quarter-finals after they claimed a 3-1 victory over Napoli -with Lionel Messi once again proving key as he scored a sublime goal.

Both Messi and Lewandowski have enjoyed stellar seasons in front of goal with the duo winning their respective league's Golden Boot.

While Messi is renowned for both creating and scoring goals, Lewandowski also showcased his all-round ability against Chelsea as he contributed two assists, whilefinding the back of the net twice himself.

Muller was asked after the match on Saturday which player he believed was the better all-round attacker right now and seemed to back Lewandowski to provide the answer in their next match.

"We'll see that on Friday. Lewy will have to answer this question," Muller told reporters.

"Messi also played very well today. But it's up to Lewy and us to answer this question in Lewy's favour on Friday."

Asked about Barcelona, Muller added:"Barca may not have won the Spanish championship and they have certainly revealed some problems, but anything can happen in these knockout games. Any record runcan end there if you have a bad day."

Bayern manager Hansi Flick praised Lewandowski's role in hisside's win over Chelsea as he admitted the Blues were a side he was worried about playing.

"We would not mind if he continued like this. He showed again today how important he is for us," Flick said.

"He not only scored two goals, but also assisted two goals. We are very happy that we have him in our team.
