Bayern faces tough task to beat Real Madrid at Bernabeu

Bayern faces tough task to beat Real Madrid at Bernabeu

Marco Asensio replaced the former Tottenham star at Bayern last week, but Isco could be the chosen one to take his place on Tuesday night after the former Malaga star scored a brace during Real Madrid's 3-2 win over Sporting Gijon on Saturday.

"When he came back he was desperate to be involved and now he has a small niggle that is preventing him from being fully fit". We'll try to play our game and prepare well the game, like the first leg. This result is not definitive, so we need to play another great game.

"We'll go there and try to turn the tide", Bayern defender Philipp Lahm said.

"I hope it is nothing and in a few days he can be with us again".

By contrast, Bayern welcome back their main man in Lewandowski, who has scored 38 times in 40 appearances this season, from a shoulder injury.

"Lewandowski is a quality player but it's not all about him", added Madrid midfielder Casemiro. "It will be very hard in Madrid but we still have confidence".

Real Madrid will face Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

Lewandowski has seven Champions League goals, level with Borussia Dortmund forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and behind only Barcelona's Lionel Messi (11) and Paris St-Germain's Edinson Cavani (8), this season.

Where can I watch Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich?

Bayern had been the dominant home team in the Champions League until last week's loss ended its run of 16 consecutive home wins in the competition.

"I have said many times I have unforgettable memories of my two years here, that is what is important".

"It has always been Real Madrid's competition".

However, Zidane insisted the 11-time European champions are not assured of anything despite having the advantage thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo's second-half double at the Allianz Arena.

When asked about who would play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Benzema on Tuesday, Zidane said he had; "already decided", who would start, "but I can't say any more than that", he added.

"We know the difficulty we face".

However, Lewandowski trained on Sunday and is poised to return as Bayern look for goals today against a Real side who have kept only one clean sheet in their last 12 games.

Zidane admitted it was "surprising", Isco had played so little, but said there were more important games before the end of the season.

Both sides have defensive concerns with Madrid definitely without centre-backs Raphael Varane and Pepe through injury.

Bayern teammates Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng also have been nursing injuries, while Javi Martinez is suspended.
