You can't buy the Champions League, says Kroos

However, Bayern will want to make use of the home advantage and pile the pressure on Zinedine Zidane's men who are looking to make it to their third consecutive Champions League final.

After Liverpool's 5-2 demolition of AS Roma in the first semifinal of the UEFA Champions League semi-final, fans are getting ready to witness another monumental battle as Bayern Munich take on Real Madrid, in what promises to be a real thriller. "Arturo is for me a very important player for example".

It's got to be said, again, that the more serious Spanish sport media haven't really been pushing the idea of Kane moving to Madrid. They are the best team in the Champions League and they have to show it on Wednesday.

"We know it will be very hard, but we've already beaten Paris (Saint-Germain) and Juventus on our way here". During the three decades and more between 1966 and 1998, Los Blancos did not win a single European Cup to add to the six they already had sitting in their trophy cabinet at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Yet, tending the garden and walking his dog Cando had been Heynckes' main tasks in the four years since he last quit Bayern.

"I have no doubts that mentally we will be at 150 percent tomorrow".

Bale says he is "honoured" to be linked with Bayern Munich. The Italian club snuck two late goals that could prove crucial if they are able to play similar to how they did against Lionel Messi and Barcelona in their shocking comeback during the Quarterfinals.

The fixture is the most-played match in European Cup or Champions League history, with the teams having met 24 times previously, each winning 11 times.

"They have been transformed under him", Zidane said of the 72-year-old Heynckes.

Real Madrid were in impressive form as they managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat against Juventus to book their place in the semi-finals.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in each leg of that quarterfinals, after Bayern had failed to capitalise on its chances at home, as Real won 6-3 on aggregate.

"We analyse our opponents and prepare to beat them".

Ronaldo in a Real team centred on playing to his strengths is nothing new, but as the Portugese has grown narrower in his scope, perhaps his team-mates have had to sharpen their focus in providing service to him.
