Needing a win to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is confident the German side will give their all in Tuesday’s showdown with Juventus.

“You don’t have to be a prophet to know that it is going to be very tough,” he told the club’s website.

“But I am convinced that we will throw everything into the melting pot to make possible what only a few weeks ago was absolutely impossible.”

The pressure on Bayern coach Louis van Gaal has eased a little following the win over Maccabi Haifa a fortnight ago. Two wins in the Bundesliga have helped to lift Bayern up to fourth in the table, and the Dutch coach is boosted by the return of Arjen Robben who has not played a full 90 minutes for Bayern since September.

Robben is desperate to start the must-win game in Turin.

“I am fit again and ready for Tuesday,” he said. “It is an important game and I would love to play from the beginning. I haven’t spoken to [Van Gaal], but I think the coach knows that I want to play.”
