Carlo Ancelotti: Bayern's goal is to win the Champions League

The Bundesliga side have failed to get past the semi-finals in each of the last three seasons, but the new coach is targeting his fourth European crown as a coach with them.

Carlo Ancelotti says Bayern Munich's aim for this season must be to win the Champions League, after falling short at the semi-final stage in the previous three campaigns.

The Italian has previously won the competition twice as a player and three times as a coach - twice with AC Milan and again at Real Madrid.

And now Ancelotti is aiming to deliver Bayern the success that evaded them under Pep Guardiola, despite the Catalan coach taking charge just after their continental triumph with Jupp Heynckes.

"[Bayern's objective in the Champions League is] to win," he told Marca.

"They have missed out because of small details in the past and we'll try to reach that turning point in the best possible way.

Ancelotti: Bayern's goal is to win the Champions League

"It's clear that our goal is to win the Champions League."

The German champions were knocked out by Atletico Madrid last term and have now been paired against the same side again in this season's group stage.

Ancelotti has also suffered pain at Atleti's hands and he is determined to post an improved result on this occasion.

"I expect and want to win because I have never managed a victory there with Chelsea or Real," he continued.

"Bayern already know how good Atletico are because they eliminated us last season. We've not forgotten."
