However, the Citizens boss has warned his side about the quality of the Bundesliga champions, especially at home.
Pellegrini told the club's official website: "I think that we will approach it as we do most of our matches, trying always to impose our footballing qualities, and to overcome Bayern Munich with our footballing qualities. But to also consider details regarding our opponents - not as a priority but as something important.
"For example when we give the ball to Bayern Munich we know it is very difficult to beat them. When we play like we are used to, and have ball possession, then it will be difficult for Bayern to win the ball back.
"So there are various aspects which start, for me, with the personality of the team to be able to impose their football against any opponent and on any pitch."
City face Bayern in their Champions League opener tomorrow.
