Aberdeen set Bayern Munich test

Willie Miller says he is relishing the prospect of facing Bayern
Aberdeen have been drawn against the German giants Bayern Munich in the last 32 of the UEFA Cup.

The winners of the Dons' tie with the German outfit tie will play Anderlecht or Bordeaux.

The tie is a repeat of arguably the Pittodrie club's greatest cup run - when the Dons beat Bayern en-route to the Cup Winners' Cup triumph in 1983.

Aberdeen's director of football Willie Miller said: "It's a reward for a fantastic achievement."

Miller, who captained the Dons' side in 1983 when they faced the Germans, said he was looking forward to the game at Pittodrie.

Miller said manager Jimmy Calderwood and the players should be congratulated for progressing to the knockout stage of the Uefa Cup.

"If we can repeat something along the same lines (as the Copenhagen win) then we can go into the game with confidence," said Miller.

"But we are not kidding ourselves, Bayern are a top, top club."

Calderwood's side secured their place in the knockout stages after a comprehensive 4-0 victory over FC Copenhagen at Pittodrie on Thursday.

The Aberdeen boss described the win over the Danish side as the best night of his football career.
