The highest-ranked English team is Manchester City who lie in eighth a spot above Arsenal

Despite all the injuries and the mental block of their recent failures against Real Madrid, Bayern Munich do have a strong team that can beat the European champions in their own den. Should stand. With AP Photos. The defending champion has struggled in decisive matches at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and is wary of more surprises. Tuesday is a national public holiday in Germany, however Rummenigge says it will be anything but for Bayern in Madrid.

It is certainly possible that if Real Madrid win their third straight Champions League title this season, the feat will not be repeated for at least another 50 years. "But we can not make the same mistakes again and I think on Tuesday we'll have to go into the match with more determination than we've ever had before".

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

Here's how his Champions League goals have arrived: one through-ball buried home, four low crosses tapped in, four penalties, one goal mouth scramble, two headers, one shot smashed home past a keeper off his line, one quality long shot and one incredible bicycle kick. "We need to go out to score quickly and that's what we'll try to do". "That's going to be our goal".

"We all want revenge and have all vowed to give it absolutely everything in Madrid".

"It's not easy to come and win here, we can do better, but we're happy with the result".

A week later, Bayern sent the match into extra time.

"I don't know how significant the first-leg advantage will be". Zinedine Zidane's men were more relaxed going into the second probably because of the confidence they had in the first leg of the tie against a Juventus that played with a one-man down (Paul Dybala), who also missed the return leg. "We have to play to win".

"At 1-1 in the first leg, Bayern had to chase a victory and we knew we could do damage on the conter-attack". "You can see in the training sessions how focused and concentrated we are working", said Alaba. The key will be to put Madrid under pressure from the get go and take the chances that they create because they will get a few chances. "They are not invincible despite what many people may think". You will not be able to rely on the main defender Dani Carvajal, the participation of Oborona Nacho and midfielder ISCO (injury).

"We are always damaged losing two players but at the same time we can not do anything about it", Zidane said.

"When Zizou has to gamble, he does, because he is the boss", captain Sergio Ramos said. "I can adapt. It wouldn't be a problem for me".

According to reports, Robben will not fly to Madrid on Monday after coming off early with a groin injury in the first leg. "No one has won two in a row", he said, which hasn't happened since 1990, before the competition was enlarged switched a to a group format.

Ribery is desperate for a crack at another Champions League final.

Heynckes said he expected a competent performance from the Turkish official.

Real is at home on Tuesday and leads 2-1 after the away leg.
