Real Madrid plans to resist doing anything unusual in the Champions League


Karim Benzema netted twice as Real drew with Bayern but won on aggregate

Yes, Real's recent European record is phenomenal and, yes, Zinedine Zidane is still yet to lose a knockout tie over three seasons in club football's most prestigious competition but they wobbled nearly uncontrollably here before somehow getting past Bayern Munich in an epic semi-final.

Madrid came from behind to win 2-1 last week in the first leg at the Allianz Arena, and sealed their progression with a 4-3 aggregate triumph despite an unconvincing performance on Tuesday. His uncle Miguel Angel Nadal said something very interesting about Rafa's passion for football.

"One of the strengths of Real is that opponents are not all the same and we study them carefully to learn how to hurt them". These unconverted opportunities and errors culminated when keeper Sven Ulreich slipped at the beginning of the second half on a pass back and let Madrid's Karim Benzema capitalize on an easy tap-in.

Despite the opening goal coming from Bayern's Joshua Kimmich, it was Real Madrid who secured the victory on the night.

"We will get our chances in Madrid".

Bayern Munich's head coach Jupp Heynckes says he will make changes to his team as they face Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semi final second leg match. Bayern Munich has a pair, last winning in 2013, while Liverpool has one title in the current era, taking home the cup in 2005.

Bayern on the other hand have probable absentees in Arjen Robben (leg) but David Alaba and Javi Martinez are likely returnees. "We know what happened against Juventus and against Bayern past year", Zidane said.

"Bayern are a big team, the tie is not over yet".

The victor of Tuesday's match advances to the final to face either Italian Serie A club AS Roma, or English Premier League traditional powerhouse Liverpool - with Liverpool appearing the more likely opponent as the Reds carry a 5-2 aggregate lead into their semifinal second-leg match on Wednesday. The three newcomers entered the first leg as substitutes. Right back Dani Carvajal misses out, whilst a late decision on Isco will be made later in the day. "What drives this club is to try to do the maximum, all of us, to regret nothing", Real boss Zidane said.
