Dominguez and Gladbach will be the first side to try and stop Bayern on August 9 - the opening day of the season - but he claims his experience of playing in Spain will give him an edge when it comes to plotting the downfall of Pep Guardiola's men.

"Yes, I know how to beat Pep," he told Bild. "I beat Guardiola's Barcelona 2-1 with Atletico (Madrid) in our stadium in 2011.

"I hope that I can also beat Pep with Gladbach."

Dominguez settled into German football well in his first season, in which he filled the boots of Bayern-bound Dante.

He is now looking forward to a second Bundesliga campaign and is confident the Foals can create an upset at the Allianz Arena in the curtain-raiser.

"We've got a chance of winning there," he added.

"Particularly because it's the opening match and Bayern are not going to be 100 per cent ready because they have a lot of international players who will start pre-season training late.

"I love big games like this and always want to be involved in them. And with Guardiola, this game is now even bigger."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
