Luis Suarez thinks that the Barcelona and Bayern Munich matches will be a 50-50 match.
At a GlanceSports – Barca beat Napoli 3-1 at Camp Nou on Saturday to seal a 4-2 aggregate win and set up a meeting at the Estadio da Luz on Friday with Bayern, who beat Chelsea 4-1 to make it 7-1 over two legs.
It could have been a very different story in Catalonia had Dries Mertens' effort in the second minute found the net instead of the net.
However, Clement Lenglet headed Barca in front seven minutes later and Lionel Messi's superb solo goal was followed by a penalty from Suarez.
Napoli pulled one back from the penalty spot through Lorenzo Insigne in first half extra time, but Barca held on strong to book their place in the last eight in Lisbon.
With the remainder of the match up for grabs as a one-off rather than a two-leg tie, Suarez sees nothing to separate Quique Setien's men and the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal champions.
“Everyone has a chance in one game, that's 50-50,” Suarez told Movistar.
“Bayern are great opponents, they are challengers for the title, like all of the eight players in Lisbon, but 11 against 11 for 90 minutes.

“The most important thing is that we qualified and are now thinking about our next opponent.
