Feature: Bayern say they are ready to surprise Real Madrid

Champions League loss will still hurt in 10 years- Hummels

Champions League loss will still hurt in 10 years- Hummels

The last team to reach three straight finals was Juventus from 1996-98. We don't have to change what we're doing.

Zidane insisted he was fully focused on the clash with the Bundesliga champions but dismissed suggestions that failing to win the competition would determine his fate. I don't know if what happened to us against Juventus [in the quarter-final second leg] and Bayern past year helps us.

Right back Dani Carvajal is another concern for Zinedine Zidane, with the Spaniard, similarly to Isco, failing to last the full 90 minutes in midweek.

"I am delighted to carry the name of Real Madrid around the world".

"We are always damaged losing two players but at the same time we can not do anything about it", Zidane said.

Bayern were forced into multiple substitutions due to injury during the first leg, and both teams will be without several key players, according to WhoScored.com.

Nacho Fernandez, a central defender who has played at right back on other occasions, is coming off an injury and it's not clear if he will be fully fit to play. Passes went astray and there was a lack of pace to the game. We have to be as good as ever to be able to qualify. We are not satisfied with our performance in the league because we want to do more.

"We're making the impossible look easy". They will now have an uphill task at Bernabeu but must take inspiration from Juventus who nearly wiped out a 3-0 deficit and scored thrice away from home in the return leg quarter-final tie at Madrid. "What motivates us, is to keep breaking records and winning titles".

However, on the home front, Los Blancos are miles (15 points) behind their fiercest rivals Barcelona who wrapped up the La Liga title after beating Deportivo 4-2.

"What Zidane says is gospel".

'When I had the chance to play I did good things, scored goals, and helped my teammates, ' he said.

"One of the strengths of Real is that opponents are not all the same and we study them carefully to learn how to hurt them", Ramos explained. "They must finish better than they did here at the Allianz Arena in the first leg".

"The battle is lost, but the war is not over", the Frenchman wrote on Twitter, borrowing from the famous Charles de Gaulle quote.

Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes dubbed the striker "a fighter" and Wagner could get the chance to be on the end of Ribery's crosses at the Bernabeu.

Even those who do not support, or even hate Real Madrid, have to admit the following: we are witnessing one of the greatest dynasties in the history of sports. "We all want revenge and have all vowed to give it absolutely everything in Madrid".

Bayern also have major concerns, as the likes of Jerome Boateng, Arjen Robben and David Alaba are all serious doubts.
