The war isn't over, Bayern star Ribery warns Madrid

Madrid, who were largely second best, did what they do best: found a way to ensure themselves of a place in Kyiv as they look to make it a hat-trick of consecutive UEFA Champions League crowns.

Real Madrid rotated their squad on the weekend, winning 2-1 against Leganes. His uncle Miguel Angel Nadal said something very interesting about Rafa's passion for football. "They have players in every position that can hurt Real". After scoring five goals last season against Bayern in the quarterfinal, Cristiano Ronaldo was rather quiet in the first leg. Ronaldo could send Real Madrid to their third straight final if he has a big second leg.

Real Madrid are the defending champions and are the favourites for many to reach yet another grand final.

It was roles reversed as the second half kicked off, this time Madrid got the early goal.

Manchester United target Gareth Bale will reportedly not be in Zinedine Zidane's starting line-up when Real Madrid welcome Bayern Munich to the Bernabéu on Tuesday night for their second-leg tie in the Champions League semi final. Right back Dani Carvajal misses out, whilst a late decision on Isco will be made later in the day. A long passage of possession was also soon rewarded when, after a move involving 28 Madrid passes, Marcelo crossed to find Karim Benzema in space on the edge of the six-yard box to head what was his first goal from open play since February.

Real are favorites to progress to the final in Kiev after having won the first leg at the Allianz Arena 2-1. After losing the first leg 2-1 in Munich, they won by the same margin over 90 minutes in Madrid only to bow out 6-3 on aggregate after losing 4-2 after extra time.

"Don't ask me about it, let them enjoy their title and we will focus on Bayern from now on".

Bayern, a five-time European champion, is looking to return to the final after four seasons.

Interim manager Jupp Heynckes can, however, pick fit-again defender David Alaba and midfielder Javi Martinez.

Zidane's side have not been knocked out of the competition since he took over two and a half years ago and it will be unprecedented if they go on to win the competition for the third year in a row.
