MUNICH (AP)

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness says he would prefer to face Bundesliga rival Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League semifinals.

Hoeness says Bayern would have the best chances to reach its second straight final by playing Dortmund. The other two semifinalists are Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The Bayern president says he doesn't think Dortmund is better than Madrid or Barcelona.

Hoeness says ''Dortmund would be nice now'' when the semifinal draw is conducted Friday.

Two Bundesliga teams are in the semifinals for the first time.

Four-time winner Bayern is in the semifinals for the second straight year. It lost last season's final at home to Chelsea.

Dortmund won the 1997 title and is in the semifinals for the first time in 15 years.
