Bayern Munich's Jupp Heynckes has good feeling about beating Real Madrid

Though, Madrid have only managed to win one of their last four games in all competitions, but Zidane is unfazed by their performances in those games, saying they would have no problem finding motivation in Munich. They have competed in the knockout stages of the Champions League 11 times, including three times in the last six seasons. It seems a combination of factors are at play here, all contributing to Madrid's domestic woes.

Zidane has called up the whole squad for our trip to Munich!

Lionel Messi has moved ahead of fellow five-time Ballon d'Or victor Cristiano Ronaldo as the highest earner in world football.

Sergio Ramos celebrates a goal.

Champions League semifinals don't come much bigger than this. "There are some very important players in this team, but it's always the same, some of them miss out". This season they do not have the luxury of goals off the bench with the departures of Alvaro Morata, James Rodriguez and even Mariano Diaz (who's having an incredible first season at Lyon).

"We are going to try to score and realise that this is football anything can happen, no matter who is playing on the pitch".

It is no secret that Karim Benzema's goal scoring has greatly declined, with only five league goals this season, he's been wasteful in front of goal.

Their most recent meeting went Madrid's way, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo.

An early goal by Franck Ribery and a late victor by Mario Gomez put Bayern ahead in the series, but Madrid rebounded with two goals by Ronaldo in the first 15 minutes of the second leg before Arjen Robben pulled one back for Bayern before halftime.

"When it comes to goal quotas, Ronaldo is in the lead", Kimmich told Bild.

Kroos asked about playing for the two sides in tomorrow's game.

Finally, Real Madrid's lack of identity has hurt them.

Neymar, the world's most expensive player is third with €81.5 million (£71.3 million), while Gareth Bale it the second-highest-paid Real Madrid player of the crop - his earnings of €44 million (£38.5 million) putting him in fourth.

They have played the flat 4-4-2 the most this season in the league with 10 appearances. The hosts went on to win 3-2, but it was not enough. Xabi Alonso's deflected free-kick in Munich put Bayern back on level terms just after the half-hour mark, but Thomas Muller saw a penalty saved by Jan Oblak before Antoine Griezmann scored Atletico a vital away goal.

"We've had success in the Bundesliga, we have reached a Copa del Rey final and we want to top it all off with a Champions League final".
