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."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
