No need for wholesale changes, says Barca coach Vilanova

Vilanova did accept though that Bayern's physical dominance throughout the two ties had been key and that how Barca prepare physically for the latter stages of the season is something they need to improve on after also running out of steam against Chelsea in last season's Champions League semi-finals.
