Winning games when not playing well is the mark of true champions, so it is no surprise Real Madrid have the scent of a third-straight Champions League title, and a thirteenth in all. And, as he approaches his 30th birthday this summer, the forward and his advisors have indicated that a future at the serial European champions - a Madrid where the current No 9, Karim Benzema, has had a patchy campaign - would be appealing for the Poland captain.
For this reason, Bayern should be looking to attacking options - Thiago and James Rodriguez should play, as should Muller, Ribery and Lewandowksi. "We will put on a great fight, we have grown over the months and have a very important goal we want to achieve." .
"Not changing anything is incorrect in my opinion", the 72-year-old said. Ronaldo, who got both goals in the first leg and one in regulation in the second, scored twice in extra time to complete a hat trick and save Madrid from elimination. "We are going to take part in a huge match".
While Ronaldo was among a number of first-team players rested for Saturday's win over Leganes, Bale started, a sign the Welshman is set for another snub in midweek. Bayern need to make them think it's slipping through their fingers by scoring two early and not letting up. The output of the real to the ending corresponds to the ratio of 1.22, the yield of Bavaria - ratio of 4.00. Madrid have lots of experienced players at this level.
"We are always damaged losing two players but at the same time we can not do anything about it", Zidane said.
"It does not matter how many times we have lost against Real Madrid in recent years", Heynckes said. This season we have shown we can have success in very tight games. "We all want revenge and have all vowed to give it absolutely everything in Madrid". "We need cool heads and hot hearts". No need to take chances, to play on the back foot, nor to do anything unusual. We must try to score quickly.
Isco damaged his shoulder in Munich after falling badly and although he trained on Sunday he is a doubt, while Carvajal has a muscle injury which will sideline him for two to three weeks, giving Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane a selection headache. But injuries to key stars including Jerome Boateng, Arjen Robben and even David Alaba could see the Bavarian giants struggle to maintain that same pace in the second leg.
A awful error from Bayern defender Rafinha let in substitute Marco Asensio to score a second-half victor, handing holders Real a significant advantage.
