Real Madrid moved a step closer to a third straight Champions League title after substitute Marco Asensio hit the victor in a 2-1 semi-final first-leg victory at Bayern Munich on Wednesday. Tuesday is a national public holiday in Germany, however Rummenigge says it will be anything but for Bayern in Madrid.
Rodriguez helped Madrid win two Champions Leagues, two Club World Cups and a Spanish league before he left on loan a year ago because of declining playing time under coach Zinedine Zidane.
As Heynckes would no doubt accept, great teams are not forged in press conferences, or even by winning domestic titles in a weak league, they are made by games like Tuesday's.
This year's quarter-final return leg against Juventus should also serve as a warning that Madrid can't relax as they saw a 3-0 first leg lead wiped out by the Italians with only an injury time penalty from Ronaldo saving them from extra time.
"It's attractive to be able to return to a place that was my home for three years", Rodriguez said. "I ask my players to play like they have never done in their history, because we are going to need it to reach the final", Zidane told reporters. "It's our game of the year and the supporters know it". "We are looking forward to the second leg, against the best team in the world which has won the Champions League three times since 2014", said Rummenigge. "We have to play to win".
The report suggests that James might be open to a move away from Allianz Arena as well as he is concerned that he could fall down the pecking order when Niko Kovac takes over from Jupp Heynckes, which suggests that his next permanent away from Real Madrid might not be at Bayern Munich. "They are not invincible despite what many people may think". Youngster Achraf Hakimi is Carvajal's immediate substitute but he has not impressed.
Ramos said he had no choice but to sound as if he was giving in to flattery. Isco suffered a shoulder injury in the first leg but is back running on the training pitch and might be included in the squad to face the Bavarians. "He has been training very well", Heynckes said. Real Madrid's was quite unique in that, out of 65 games played, they found the back of the net 61 times, reaking the record formerly set by Bayern Munchen.
In the final five minutes, Lewandowski beat Navas, but his floated shot flew just wide of the post to add to Bayern's misery.
