Gareth Bale 'honoured' to be linked with move to Bayern Munich

Salah was good for Roma- but not this good

Only Louis van Gaal, with Barcelona and Bayern, and Carlo Ancelotti, at Real Madrid, had managed double figures.

Real lifted the trophy in each of his three previous seasons as either head coach or assistant. "But as of now I am a Real Madrid player".

Asked whether he would swap the two, Heynckes would not be drawn into the debate, responding: "This is a question for journalists, not for us".

The Bayern coach also played down the threat of Real Madrid top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored in all 10 of their European matches this season - taking his tally to 42 goals in all competitions. He faced Madrid in the quarter-finals and scored a late goal in the first leg at the Bernabeu to make the score 4-2 in Madrid's favour.

"Cristiano is a wonderful athlete -- you can see that with the goals he scores", said Bayern defender Jerome Boateng.

I think this could be a slow-burning game, with both concentrating upon holding onto possession in deep areas to put themselves in control of the tie.

'It's important for the team to know that the times when the back line is breached there's someone behind us who can salvage the situation'. "But as of now, I am a Real Madrid player".

Heynckes also steered Real to the 1997-1998 title, during his single season in Madrid, beating Juventus 1-0 in the Amsterdam final to end a 32-year drought for the Spanish giants.

Zidane's appointment as Madrid coach in January 2016 was a setback for James as the Frenchman gave him limited opportunities and often left him on the bench.

Asked about what his thoughts were behind Rodriguez's time in Germany, Zidane claimed that he had never wanted to see the playmaker leave in the first place, and stated that it was bad to leave players out of his starting lineup - again with the use of foul language - throughout this term.

Arjen Robben says Bayern Munich can ill afford to show Real Madrid any fear if it wants to avoid a second-straight Champions League exit against the Spaniards.

Of managers to have taken charge of at least 20 games in the Champions League, this match features two of the top three managers in terms of win percentage - Jupp Heynckes (71%) and Zinedine Zidane (67%).

"We are highly motivated to defend our title". Zidane was agitated earlier in the season before wins over Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus changed the complexion of the campaign. 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.

"Last year the referee knocked us out", commented Bayern right back Joshua Kimmich on the club's TV station on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah has played his way into talks of rivaling Ronaldo and Messi for the next Ballon D'or award, and Firmino and Mane have partnered alongside him to form a devastating attack.
