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."
