Hannover taunt Bayern Munich after Champions League loss to Real Madrid

Hannover taunt Bayern Munich after Champions League loss to Real Madrid

I spent three unique years here and I won many titles. Bayern didn't make its attacking dominance count in the first leg and it can not afford to be profligate on Tuesday given its standing in the tie. And when he was hauled off at half-time against Juventus earlier this month, it looked like the beginning of the end for the former Tottenham midfielder in Spain.

"We know things are going to be hard, Madrid are used to very important games but so are we".

Nacho Fernandez, a central defender who has played at right back on other occasions, is coming off an injury and it's not clear if he will be fully fit to play. The game is available on Sony Liv app, however, for online streaming links, send us a message to our official Facebook page.

"What I expect for him is to be objective, fair and just".

Real Madrid will attempt to maintain their Champions League title defence with Tuesday night's second leg clash against Bayern Munich at the Bernabeu. He deputised effectively there last week in the second half, but 90 minutes in an unfamiliar position is a very different story.

Former Madrid galactico James Rodriguez, now on loan at Bayern, also spoke to the media, with the Colombia worldwide saying he would not celebrate should he find the net on Tuesday. Here, Goal takes a closer look...

The visitors must do without Arjen Robben (ankle) and Jerome Boateng (thigh), who both limped off against Real last time out.

For his part, the Welshman usually gives short shrift to transfer talk, but in a recent interview with German newspaper SportBild he refused to rule out a move to the Bundesliga giants.

"It's ridiculous", Rummenigge told reporters at the airport before Bayern's trip to Madrid.

"My future is not depending on what happens in the Champions League".

Bale's stock has fallen at Real.

There are no two ways about it: Robert Lewandowski is the German side's primary goal threat and they him to put in a far better performance than in the first leg. There's nothing against Zidane or this club.

'I have absolutely nothing against (Zidane) or the club, ' Rodriguez said.

Spanish media reports have indicated that winger Lucas Vazquez could be asked to deputise, but Zidane said no decision had been made.

If the Bavarians can upend the defending champions, they'll likely head to the final in Kiev as favourites against either Roma or Liverpool.

Manchester United have reportedly set their sights on James Rodriguez, who is now on loan at Bayern Munich from Real Madrid.
