Bayern Munich looking confident as they arrive Madrid

In this picture, Zidane, manager of Real Madrid, looks on during the UEFA Champions League Semi Final First Leg match between Bayern Muenchen and Real Madrid at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany, April 25, 2018.

The Bundesliga champions trail Real 2-1 heading into the second leg of their Champions League semi-final, which will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu. His uncle Miguel Angel Nadal said something very interesting about Rafa's passion for football.

Liverpool or Roma will certainly offer a stern test in Kiev later this month but, having now seen off Bayern, the German champions, Paris Saint-Germain, the French champions, and Juventus, who sit top of Serie A, the feeling is that a 13th European success is now Real's to lose.

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have a long-standing global rivalry of their own, with Tuesday's match being the 26th official game between the two European giants since 1976. "We know the importance of this game and what I have said, I will repeat".

A week later, Bayern sent the match into extra time.

Sloppy defence was key to those struggles by Madrid at home.

Bayern defender Joshua Kimmich put them in front in the third minute but Karim Benzema levelled with a free header in the 11th and a goalkeeping howler from Bayerns Sven Ulreich allowed Benzema to tap in Madrid's second at the start of the second half. But what matters to me is what we are doing now, how we play against Bayern.

Head coach Zinedne Zidane could be without Dani Carvajal (hamstring) and Isco (shoulder). In the 73rd minute, Rodriguez hammered a volley from straightaway center but the Madrid shotstopper was there to acrobatically push it away.

Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who used to play as a right back, could also end up on the flank. "I can adapt. It wouldn't be a problem for me". Madrid is trying to win a third straight European title, and fourth in five seasons.

It meant no place again in the starting line-up for Gareth Bale, who was named as a substitute for the fifth time in six knock-out matches. Bayern have lost five games all season and in each loss, Lewandowski failed to score.

"We need to minimise our mistakes and we want to change a few things from the first leg".

"We will concentrate on the game because we are already under too much pressure".
