Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich

Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich

FC Bayern Munchen have a mammoth task awaiting them at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday as they look to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals. Madrid hosts Bayern in the second leg on Tuesday.

"What we have to do is go out and try to win the match", Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said.

Speaking at the news conference ahead of the second leg, Heynckes pointed out that taking chances was in his club's DNA, and this time he hoped they were the ones who made the most of the opportunities created.

Should they advance to the final, Real will be the clear favourites to complete a Champions League "three-peat" by beating probably Liverpool, who themselves raced to a 5-2 lead after one leg against Roma. "He knows what he has to do", Zidane said.

"At 1-1 in the first leg, Bayern had to chase a victory and we knew we could do damage on the conter-attack". "I want to play a very good game, I want Bayern Munich to go through and play the final".

"It's not easy to come and win here, we can do better, but we're happy with the result".

The winger and his Bayern team-mates fly to Madrid on Monday vowing to upset the odds.

The report suggests that James might be open to a move away from Allianz Arena as well as he is concerned that he could fall down the pecking order when Niko Kovac takes over from Jupp Heynckes, which suggests that his next permanent away from Real Madrid might not be at Bayern Munich. Youngster Achraf Hakimi is Carvajal's immediate substitute but he has not impressed. "There are some players who are performing well at the moment".

Injuries and a loss of form plus the emergence of Isco, Asensio and Lucas have hampered Bale's progress and Madrid would definitely consider his sale this summer - especially if it allows them to bring in another forward.

If Nacho Fernandez is fit, he will be able to cover at right back, but the central defender, who has been out for nearly a month only trained with the first team for the first time in a month on Sunday and is also doubtful for Tuesday. Midfielder Isco is also a doubt following a shoulder problem.

Madrid is trying to win a third straight European title, and fourth in five seasons.

After suffering the heartbreak of defeats in the 2010 and 2012 finals, it was his deft backheel which Robben fired home for the winning goal at Wembley against Borussia Dortmund in 2013.

Heynckes said he expects a competent performance from the Turkish official. Bayern's DNA is that we always score goals, always have many chances, and we want to have that tomorrow at the Bernabeu too.
