“The group stage was difficult. Then PSG, City and Real or Chelsea in the semis. It would be an extremely valuable triumph,” he added.
The German manager also touched on the prospect of facing Erling Haaland. The former Borussia Dortmund striker scored five goals as City beat RB Leipzig 7-0.
"He is an exceptionally good player who is extremely dangerous as we saw again recently. He has extreme quality in terms of speed and physicality. He's uncomfortable to defend,” Nagelsmann explained.

Bayern’s attack features the likes of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Sadio Mane, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane, Thomas Müller and Mathys Tel.
