Bayern ready for Champions League Quarter Final

The Champions League winners in 2013

Bavarian giants Bayern München are strong favourites against Portuguese Liga leaders Benfica on tonights Champions League Quarter Final.

The Portuguese side is leading the Liga NOS rather surprisingly, despite strong and classy football performance from local rivals Sporting Clube de Portugal that earlier this year snatched top manager Jorge Jesus. The reds (Benfica) lost 3 out of 4 of their battles against the lions (Sporting) this season, including a rather embarrassing 0-3 home defeat.

Jorge Jesus

Manager Jorge Jesus led Benfica to two consecutive Europa League finals. Benfica ended up losing both to Chelsea and Seville.

 Pepe Guardiola

Josep Guardiola is playing safe: 

"I am Bayern coach and we always want to be the best but I really don't think we are the favourites going into this. Benfica are playing very well at the moment and I have to admit I am very impressed.

But we are Bayern, and Bayern are always considered favourites. I have lots of respect for them and for Portuguese football. Remember what happened last year in Porto ....

For the people of Munich I understand and accept that only the treble will do. If we don't win it, I know for many it is simply not good enough. But there are many quality teams. The most important thing is that we give it our best shot."

As usual the game will start at 8:45pm (UTC +1:00).

Bayern's possible lineup

Neuer; Lahm, Kimmich, Alaba, Bernat; Alonso, Vidal; Coman, Ribéry (Costa); Müller, Lewandowski.

Why should I measure my head?

Simply because your head size changes: losing a couple of pounds, getting a hair cut can change the size of your head. 

Our hats fit head measurements from 21 1/8 inches to 23 7/8 inches. With standard head measurements for men's hats being 22 5/8 inches, and the standard head measurement for women's hats being 21 1/2 inches, we try to cover every head, from small to extra-large.

To get an accurate measurement use a non-stretch cloth measuring tape instead of a plastic one. 

Go for a comfortably snug fit, not too tight and certainly not too loose. The use of a hat may also determine its best fit: a tighter hat stays on better when its windy outside.

Take your time

Place the measuring tape around the widest part of your head, resting it where you like your hat to sit.

Fit is very subjective

Some people wear their hats low, some at an angle and some quite high. Some prefer their fedoras to be angled.

When you've got the tape positioned, join the leading edge to the tape at any comfortable spot on your forehead and note the number of inches, including fractions of an inch. 

Then simply compare the number of inches to the chart below to find your hat measurement.

A word of advice

Remember, if your measurement falls somewhere in the middle of a size range, it's advisable to choose the next largest size. Same with when you're trying to decided between "S/M" or "L/XL".

You will notice that some of our hats are "one size fits most". These hats generally have an elastic sweatband to accommodate a wide range of sizes.

We have a Hat Sizing Table along with the images of the item. Please refer to it before making your purchase. Thank you.
