Five Bayern Munich players to watch in Champions League game

Real go into Tuesday's semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich with a 2-1 advantage, but their domestic struggles have led to speculation surrounding Zidane's future.

Instead, the playmaker is focused on helping Bayern overcome a 2-1 deficit from the first leg when the teams meet again on Tuesday.

"The battle is lost, but the war is not over", he tweeted, borrowing from the quote by famed French leader Charles de Gaulle.

"If we execute well with desire and motivation we have a great chance of reaching our objective".

In addition, this Bayern side have defensive weaknesses - Boateng is injured and Martinez and Alaba are included in the squad but still recovering.

Bayern's Robert Lewandowski is also in pole position as the Poland striker has recently been linked with a career in the Spanish capital a fee of €60m.

The Germany worldwide raced clear and caught out Keylor Navas at his near post to stun Real.

Ribery wreaked havoc on the left wing and also forced Navas into an excellent second-half save.

Bayern paid attention to Madrid's recent struggles.

Isco damaged his shoulder in Munich after falling badly and although he trained on Sunday he is a doubt, while Carvajal has a muscle injury which will sideline him for two to three weeks, giving Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane a selection headache.

He headed in Bayern's late, lifeline goal in the narrow defeat - in away goals - against Atletico Madrid in the 2016 semi-final.

Bayern cruised to a 4-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, behind goals from Niklas Dorsch, Sandro Wagner, Rafinha and Niklas Sule.

"Real Madrid has shown that it can be vulnerable even when playing at home", Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes said through a translator.

"At 1-1 in the first leg, Bayern had to chase a victory and we knew we could do damage on the conter-attack".

"We need to minimise our mistakes and we want to change a few things from the first leg".

Along with Arjen Robben, he has yet to sign a one-year extension to his contract which expires in June.

Cristiano Ronaldo was looking to add to his 120 Champions League goals in Munich, but he barely got a kick of the ball; Luka Modric and Toni Kroos, perhaps the best midfield pairing in the world, couldn't dominate the game in the way they have over the past couple of years.

The Germany global started his career at Hertha Berlin and played for Hamburg and Manchester City before signing for Bayern in 2011, where he has gone on to win six Bundesliga titles, three German Cups and the Champions League.
