James Rodriguéz on Zidane, a return to Madrid, and role change

Jerome Boateng needed help to leave the pitch after picking up the serious thigh muscle injury

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said the his team need "cool heads and hot hearts' if they are to learn from Juventus and pull off an unlikely win".

In last season's quarter-final meeting with Real at the Bernabeu, Bayern were left incensed after Arturo Vidal was controversially sent off and Real scored two goals that looked to be from offside positions. "But we can not make the same mistakes again and I think on Tuesday we'll have to go into the match with more determination than we've ever had before". He might come on later on and play alongside Lewandowski. "They are not invincible despite what many people may think".

"The important thing is also the key message - for Gareth and Karim, for everyone - that we stay connected".

Antonio Conte's side is now just two points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place, albeit having played a game more, as it battles to secure a place in next season's Champions League.

"We know they are going to come here and put in a big performance", Zidane told the media ahead of Tuesday's heavyweight clash.

David Alaba missed the first leg with a thigh injury, but has returned to training in time for the second leg and is likely to feature.

Bayern paid attention to Madrid's recent struggles.

Redskins pick LSU RB Derrius Guice in 2nd round of NFL Draft
Here's a look at how the second round could play out, with analysis from NJ.com contributor Mark Eckel. A total of six running backs were taken ahead of him. "It was pretty insane ", Guice said.

Madrid have injury problems of their own, with defenders Nacho and Dani Carvajal both doubts, meaning Lucas Vazquez may need to fill in at right-back, as he did in the closing stages in Munich. In that 2000/01 campaign, Ottmar Hitzfeld's side overcame Real in the last four, winning 1-0 at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"Real Madrid showed in [the Juve] game they're vulnerable even at home".

Should they advance to the final, Real will be the clear favourites to complete a Champions League "three-peat" by beating probably Liverpool, who themselves raced to a 5-2 lead after one leg against Roma.

"I see him well and maybe others are anxious".

Ronaldo's 15 goals in this year's competition have certainly been key, but it was Zidane who made the courageous call to leave out Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema at the Allianz Arena against Bayern.

"They want to enjoy their title and the same for us and ours, we need to eliminate the Germans and to reach another final".

The German giants are waiting to see if winger Arjen Robben will recover in time from a groin strain.
