Zidane aims to overcome Bayern in Champions League semis

Liverpool news Real Madrid Mohamed Salah demand

The reigning champions, who are bidding to win the competition for a third successive year, are firm favourites to book a trip to Kiev after recording a 2-1 triumph on German soil last week.

Real Madrid will attempt to maintain their Champions League title defence with Tuesday night's second leg clash against Bayern Munich at the Bernabeu. Zinedine Zidane's men lead 2-1 from the first leg in Germany ahead of the return at the Bernabeu.

"I think Real were all at sea defending every cross, so we know what we have to do", said Wagner, the back-up for top-scorer Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern teammate Thomas Muller also said: "Real Madrid is absolutely vulnerable (for the second-leg)". We'll have to play like we never have before this year: we need concentration, determination, commitment, to win battles. The match will take place on may 1 at 21.45 Kyiv time. "But we can not make the same mistakes again and I think on Tuesday we'll have to go into the match with more determination than we've ever had before".

Sloppy defense was key to those struggles by Madrid at home. Real Madrid have now won 12 of these encounters to Bayern's 11 victories (2 draws).

But the proclamation also discriminates against travelers due to their religion, which violates the Constitution, Katyal wrote. He said the policy's call for a report every six months "indicates there'll be a reassessment" from time to time.

Ribery joined Bayern in 2007 and holds the club record for a foreign player of 247 Bundesliga appearances, scoring 80 goals. It can feel as though players at Real Madrid are signed less for how they will fit into the team than how they fill suit the marketing strategy.

When comparing Real's achievements to those of their more recent counterparts, they still outshine the likes of the mid-2000s Milan side or the early 2010s Barca side.

Real are likely to be without Isco and Dani Carvajal, who sustained shoulder and hamstring injuries respectively during the first leg. The big guns were back in action on Monday though with the likes of Luka Modric, Marcelo and Sergio Ramos also returning.

Lucas Vazquez started in Munich last week, which is further confirmation that Gareth Bale will need to look elsewhere for regular first-team football next season. The last team to reach three straight finals was Juventus from 1996-98. "We need cool heads and hot hearts".

Ronaldo's 15 goals in this year's competition have certainly been key, but it was Zidane who made the courageous call to leave out Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema at the Allianz Arena against Bayern.
