BERLIN (AFP) - Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola believes winning the German Bundesliga will prove a harder task than lifting the Champions League - something he has achieved twice with Barcelona, he said on Friday.

"The most prestigious title is the Champions League but the most important and most difficult is the German championship," Guardiola told reporters.

Bayern, unbeaten in domestic league action, are a stunning 16 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga and have a foot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after beating Arsenal 2-0 away on Wednesday.

"The Champions League is like a good meal in a good restaurant. The Bundesliga, it's like eating pizza or hamburger every day," he said.
