The UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg match Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid is going to be held at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid. "What matters to everyone is thinking about this game and that's it", he added, referring to Tuesday's clash with Bayern.
"We have to think about the good things that we did in the first leg in Munich and learn from the match against Juventus at home", said backup Real goalkeeper Kiko Casilla, referring to the 3-1 loss in the quarter-finals. Robert Lewandowski shanked one half-chance just wide on 20 minutes, and Franck Ribery was risky down the left, tearing up Lucas Vazquez who was filling in at right-back for the injured Dani Carvajal.
"Our focus and determination will be there, we don't need to change much".
The Spanish club's hierarchy is famed for its ruthlessness and before their run to the semi-finals of the Champions League it looked like the end of the road at Real for Zidane. "We will try to score as quickly as possible and win the match". We want to defend our title, and beat the Germans, too.
"We are making seem easy what is practically impossible".
Up until last week, he'd score in every Champions League game this term, amassing a total of 15 strikes - the highest for the season by a mile. "In such a small amount of time, it's a challenge to carry on breaking records". "We have scored lots of goals all season and I hope we can show the efficiency that usually characterizes our game".
After the first leg in Munich, Bayern players past and present had lamented their inability to finish their chances and that narrative is sure to continue now as Lewandowski and Muller continued where they left off in the first leg, missing chance after chance.
"They want to enjoy their title and the same for us and ours, we need to eliminate the Germans and to reach another final". A long passage of possession was also soon rewarded when, after a move involving 28 Madrid passes, Marcelo crossed to find Karim Benzema in space on the edge of the six-yard box to head what was his first goal from open play since February.
Bayern are without winger Arjen Robben for the trip to the Bernabeu after he suffered a leg injury eight minutes into the first leg. In addition to Martinez, David Alaba is expected to play on Tuesday after missing the first leg with an injury.
