Kroos highlights Real's game-changing capabilities ahead of Bayern clash

  • It's been a historic Champions League campaign for Roma

He is more relaxed within the team. Roma will need to conjure up another miracle to get a 3-0 or 4-1 result that would put them through. "Currently, I play football at Real Madrid and I enjoy that".

It's hard enough trying to stop Cristiano Ronaldo without attributing mystical powers to Real Madrid.

- Bayern's run of five consecutive Champions League defeats against Los Blancos (three in the semi-finals and two in the quarter-finals) is their worst losing run against an opponent in competition history.

But this time Bayern are the underdogs as 12-time champions Real Madrid are looking to win their third successive Champions League trophy under Zinedine Zidane.

Real Madrid have had the last laugh more often than not, winning the tie on 5 occasions.

The European giants will clash at the Allianz Arena Wednesday, and Bale was asked about speculation that Munich may make a move for him by Bild (h/t Dermot Corrigan of ESPN FC). Corentin Tolisso featuring is still not a certainty but James Rodriguez will most likely be let out to torment his parent club after being used as a substitute in the weekend game against Hannover.


However, the Bundesliga champions possess their own prolific marksman in Robert Lewandowski, and will hope he can outscore his Portuguese counterpart and take them to their first final since they last won the competition in 2013. To be honest, I always want more.

Los Blancos and Bayern's ties also run deep during the current campaign, with James Rodriguez joining Jupp Heynckes' side on a two-year loan deal last summer, and the Colombia worldwide has made it known that he wishes to depart Santiago Bernabeu. 'Obviously he's one of the best in the world - for some, the best - with [Lionel] Messi, but what are you supposed to do? We have to make sure that he isn't allowed to add to his tally'.

Real Madrid have us spellbound.

Ronaldo has been in red hot form, hitting 15 goals in the competition in 10 games. They have a DFB-Pokal Cup final to look forward to also, but they know that lasting legacies are built in the European Cup.

The player, who is on loan from Real Madrid, spoke about tonight's semi-final against Bayern Munich and also his future - as it is taken as read that Madrid will trigger the clause to buy him back for four million euros this summer.
