London, Mar 30 (ANI): Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has warned Bayern Munich that they love playing away, and tonight's victory for the Red Devils would establish a Champions League record of seven successive victories away from home.

Ferguson said: "I think we have matured as a team in Europe, our away form has been fantastic. I think it's 16 games undefeated away from home. That's an indication of the maturity and understanding of how to play in Europe now."

"There have been some big challenges in those games. We accepted the weaknesses we had away from home some years back and have addressed them properly now," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Ferguson also claimed his team have peaked for the nine days that will define their season.

A potential title decider with the visit of Chelsea on Saturday follows tonight's match against Bayern.

"I think it's a massive week for us. Nine days when we have two big games against Bayern and a great game against Chelsea. You have to enjoy it and at the same time know it's crucial," Ferguson said.

"You hope you don't make any mistakes and hope they will happen to your opponents to win games for you. It's going to be an exciting week," he said.

Asked if they were going into those games playing better than at any time this season, Ferguson added: "Yes, I think we are. The return of Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand and Edwin Van Der Sar has made a big difference." (ANI)
