United's 4-1 triumph over Benfica 29 years ago will be remembered forever.
Schmeichel didn't want to erase their special page in history.
But he pointed out that United have since produced a much fitter, stronger and more athletic side than that of 68.
He said: "I know I am part of the greatest United side of all time. If we played the 68 team we'd win 10-0.
"Since the Sixties everything's changed in football. The pace of is so much faster.
"Just look at the old videos and see the space and time they had on the ball.
"That doesn't happen any more. We probably play at twice the speed they did then.
"That's why I'm saying we'd beat them. I'm not saying they were not a great team in their time. They were a fantastic. But times have changed.
"It's impossible to compare sides from different eras.
"In 1968 it was a different world. The Sixties were a great time and I was just a kid. But things have moved on, though.
"We all know what it would mean to this club to win the European Cup again.
"But before we talk about winning it let's just deal with these two Dortmund matches.
"We have learned as we have gone through this competition. And we've been in domestic semi-finals every year since I came to the club.
"We just don't lose them. But in Europe we needed to find out how to get through to the latter stages.
"We now know what we are capable of. I don't think there's any chance of the lads freezing against Dortmund."
