Badstuber: Bayern can accomplish anything

The 23-year-old believes that the Bavarians have no reason to fear Real Madrid on current form, but urged his teammates to focus on domestic matters in the mean time.

Holger Badstuber has suggested that Bayern Munich is more than capable of beating Real Madrid when the two teams lock horns in the Champions League semifinals.

The Spanish giant secured passage to the last four with an 8-2 aggregate victory over APOEL on Wednesday night, while the Bavarians coasted past Marseille, beating the French side 4-0 over two legs.

Jose Mourinho's side is widely regarded to be among the favorites for the competition, but Badstuber says his side has no reason to approach the game with fear.

"From now on, anything is possible," the 23-year-old told Bild. "We can accomplish anything, really. It's all in our own hands. We'll have to invest a lot for that.

"If we continue like we did over the past few weeks, I have a very good feeling."

Despite standing on the brink of European glory, Badstuber urged his teammates to shift their focus back to domestic matters, starting with the Bavarian derby against Augsburg on Saturday.

"We all know that the Bundesliga is the top priority," he said. "Everyone must be focused. Against Augsburg, it will be difficult. They're in a good run of form, and they're always willing to go the extra mile against Bayern. They'll be very eager."

Jupp Heynckes' side is currently second in the Bundesliga, three points behind Borussia Dortmund with just six rounds to go.
