Boost for Bayern Munich as Alaba, Martinez fit to face Madrid

Bayern Munich defender Niklas Sule has dismissed the quality of Champions League opponents Real Madrid.

Real stand on the brink of a trio of finals ahead of their second leg against Bayern Munich in the last four on Tuesday, when they will carry a 2-1 lead, and two away goals, to the Santiago Bernabeu.

"We can not talk about this", Zidane said on Friday.

"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. "I ask my players to play like they have never done in their history, because we are going to need it to reach the final", Zidane told reporters. "We know what happened against Juventus and against Bayern previous year", Zidane said.

Bayern didn't half miss some chances, but that's what pressure can do to you, just like how the nerves got to Real in their second leg quarter-final against Juventus.

Bayern paid attention to Madrid's recent struggles. Against Juventus, all three goals came when the Madrid defense failed to clear routine crosses into the area. "Barcelona deserved to be a champion, we have to congratulate them, nothing more", said Zidane.

"Real Madrid showed in [the Juve] game they're vulnerable even at home". Isco picked up a shoulder injury in the first leg and has not been named in the squad for Tuesday's return leg. Nacho Fernandez may feature in the squad after recovering from his right ankle injury. This Madrid may not be a great side in the traditional sense, but they are very good at winning knockout ties.

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.

Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, who used to play as a right back, could also end up on the flank.

Although that team won five European titles in succession, if Real were to win it all this season, I would rank the current Real squad above the team of six decades ago because the current group would have done it in an era in which sustained success at this level is far more hard.

"It could be an option", Ramos said. "It's our game of the year and the supporters know it". "We need cool heads and hot hearts".
