Charlie Nicholas states his prediction for Bayern Munich v Real Madrid

Messi zooms past Ronaldo as top earner

"Since he arrived, they've played much better so I think they're harder to beat than previous year", said Kroos.

Heynckes won the Champions League with Real in 1998 after a 1-0 win over a Juventus side featuring Real manager Zinedine Zidane.

Real Madrid have had the last laugh more often than not, winning the tie on 5 occasions.

At the start of the competition, both sides will have entered the competition as two of the favourites to be crowned champions.

"In Robert Lewandowski, we also have a striker who has already scored 39 goals this season". He is more free now and our fans love seeing him play.

Javi Martinez was sent off in Real's 2-1 win in Munich and Arturo Vidal also had two bookings when Bayern lost 4-2 after extra time in Madrid.

"We want to reach the final - it's our last chance to win a title this season, as it was two years ago", said Kroos.

Ribery, Robben, Mueller, and James will have to help stop Real's unsafe counterattacks and neutralize their star striker Cristiano Ronaldo.

When he was among the large group left out of the trip to Malaga, Real insisted the plan had always been to rest those that played against Juve.

David Alaba, who did not take a part in the final training session on Tuesday due to a thigh strain will face a late fitness test and Bayern will be hoping that he'll get cleared to strut his stuff against Zizou's men.

Donald Trump Considers Posthumous Pardon for Boxer Jack Johnson
Jess Myron Willard was capable of beating Johnson in Havana, Cuba, in April 1915 in the 26th round, the New York Post reported. The House and Senate previously passed resolutions to posthumously pardon Johnson , but no president has granted the pardon.

Inevitably Zidane was quizzed on how he felt about letting James go past year on a two-season loan move to Bayern whose coach Jupp Heynckes hailed the Colombian's growing influence.

"We know their other players are really good and able to score too. But not to show me or prove me wrong", he added. Madrid have a near fully fit squad with their only doubt being Nacho.

"Real Madrid interested in Lewandowski?"

"Of course, he's a big topic for us in the game analysis", said Heynckes when asked about Ronaldo.

The chance to win this trophy a third time awaits, something achieved only by Bob Paisley and Carlo Ancelotti. We are prepared for that, knowing that we are going to have to suffer.

Munich boss Heynckes was quick to play down the threat in which Cristiano Ronaldo could provide his side.

Robert Lewandowski is Bayern's main goal threat, however, they possess attacking options all over the field. With six goals and 10 assists, he has been one of Bayern's chief creative outlets on their road to a record sixth consecutive Bundesliga title.

"It's a cracker - a big meeting in a positive sense", said Heynckes."These are two teams with a great tradition in European football, who play and love attractive football".

"It's a hard draw for both sides", he added.
