Heynckes lives for the here and now against old foe Zidane

Heynckes lives for the here and now against old foe Zidane

Bayern Munich are set to block any move for Robert Lewandowski from Real Madrid this summer despite the striker's desire to leave the Allianz Arena. But the team standing before him are Real Madrid and, as Kroos put it, "the Champions League releases special powers" in them.

Rather worryingly for Bayern, they will be without a strong contingent of their regular starting lineup when they welcome Real Madrid.

It was a poor first half from Los Blancos but they equalized only minutes after the break when Cristiano Ronaldo ended an astonishing 11-hour wait for a goal with a sweeping finish past Manuel Neuer.

The two sides, both giants of the European game, meet each other in the first leg of their eagerly-anticipated last-four tie at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

Nigeria can get to the quarterfinal of World Cup - Ex-Super Eagles star Etim Esin.

Bayern Munich will be eyeing revenge as it was Real Madrid who dumped them out of Europe last season with a 6-3 aggregate. Currently, Bayern Munich are unbeaten at home since last April and have been steamrolling past teams at home this season. We are prepared for that, knowing that we are going to have to suffer. The Berlin-born player must have answered a million questions about an opponent that he has crossed swords with many times. Other times, it's a bit of good fortune, like the two deflected goals that prompted Bayern's comeback against Sevilla or the injury-time penalty awarded to Real Madrid against Juventus just in the last round.




Once he reports, he and Bayern could beat Ronaldo and Madrid (2012 in the Champions League).

Real missed their 32-year-old captain marvel dearly through suspension as Zinedine Zidane's men went down to an nearly fatal 3-1 defeat at home to Juventus.

However, all of that will be forgotten if Real Madrid are able to lift the Champions League trophy for a third consecutive year - something no team has ever been able to do in this iteration of the tournament.

Midfielder, Arturo Vidal, who suffered a knee injury at the start of the month, is out for the season, while Kingsley Coman is out due to ankle injury.

Boateng says no team can stop him entirely, but his side will try. I don't think there's a clear favourite in this rivalry.

However the match turned as Ronaldo netted two second-half goals and Bayern had Javi Martinez sent off for a second booking.
