Bayern Munich defender Dante hails Lionel Messi and Barcelona as the best in the world ahead of their Champions League semi-final meeting.

Bayern Munich defender Danter has hailed Barcelona and Lionel Messi as the best in the world ahead of the Champions League meeting between the two sides.

Bayern take on Barca in the semi-finals later this month, and the Brazilian has urged his teammates to be wary.

He admits that it will not be easy and says that Bayern must approach the game in the right way.

"Of course it will not be easy," Dante told Lance. "We know that Barcelona are the best team in the world.

"It will be very difficult to play against Messi, the best player in the world. We will have to give all of us, show solidarity and run a lot.

"Barcelona are a great team who improvise a lot. We need to approach the two games with a great mentality."

The first leg between the two teams will take place at the Allianz Arena on April 23.
