Dutch striker Arjen Robben said Tuesday that Bayern Munich would upset Italy's Fiorentina in Wednesday's Champions League clash at home.

"The ideal result would be 6-0 but maybe that's not going to happen," Robben, who has scored in his last five appearances for Bayern, told the local media.

Bayern look clear favourites for the round of 16 first leg Champions League clash against the struggling, under-strength Italian club, with 12 straight wins in all competitions behind them.

Coach Louis van Gaal said Tuesday that Germany striker Miroslav Klose was fit for selection again after a lay-off for injury, meaning Bayern, who last won the Champions League in 2001, are now back at full strength.
