Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich: Champions League highlights and recap

Of the previous four seasons Real Madrid have won three Champions League titles

Real coach Zinedine Zidane has promised his side will look for the early goal against the German league winners in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final, as they seek to remain on course for an unprecedented third consecutive European Cup. But it's not important. What matters to everyone is thinking about the game and that's it.

Goals from Marcelo and Marco Asensio cancelled out Joshua Kimmich's opener in Munich last Wednesday to leave the LaLiga side sitting comforrtably.

Substitute Gareth Bale could have sealed it but failed to convert, which left five minutes of added time agony, but Zidane's side held on, with Ramos and Raphael Varane outstanding, to make it to another final in Kiev in three weeks' time. Perpetually-rooted-to-the-bottom Chesterfield's descent out of the football league was sealed last week, and the Spireites will now play non-league football for the first time in 98 years. We know what we have to do but we don't have to change anything in what we are doing.

"We know things are going to be hard, Madrid are used to very important games but so are we". "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".

"We will concentrate on the game because we are already under too much pressure". "We are prepared and we are going to give it all we've got to make it to the final".

Real Madrid will be without midfielder Isco and fullback Dani Carvajal due to a shoulder and hamstring injury, respectively.

Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes has defended top-scorer Robert Lewandowski following his lack of Champions League goals. Bayern, a five-time European champion, is looking to return to the final after four seasons.

"Lewy has my complete support".

Real Madrid have the aura, a formidable history and they will be shooting for immortality when they go for a modern-day hat-trick of Champions League wins but, beneath all that, Liverpool have nothing to fear if they do reach the final. "Every striker, including myself, has phases where they don't score", said Heynckes at his pre-match press conference. "So who knows what'll happen".
