Real Madrid will go into Tuesday night's Champions League semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich in the driving seat courtesy of a 2-1 win at the Allianz Arena last week. A 2-1 win for Bayern would mean extra time, while even winning 1-0 would eliminate the Germans.
The perception of these two sides this season has been interesting; Real, while clearly harbouring issues that will need to be fixed one day soon, have still been seen as one of the favourites from the off. Bayern have gone through their campaign under the radar, professionally and efficiently, but they can not be ignored any longer.
"I'll obviously keep doing all I can to stay on track [to play]".
Bayern didn't half miss some chances, but that's what pressure can do to you, just like how the nerves got to Real in their second leg quarter-final against Juventus.
The 2017/2018 Champions League campaign has shown itself to be a year of stunning comebacks and Bayern's struggling stars seem to be ready for a surprise.
The 30-year-old was an unused substitute in the first leg, but goes into the return fixture fresh from scoring his eighth Bundesliga goal in 12 matches since rejoining his boyhood club from Hoffenheim at the turn of the year. "Barcelona deserved to be a champion, we have to congratulate them, nothing more", said Zidane.
