Casemiro: More to Bayern than Lewandowski

Casemiro: More to Bayern than Lewandowski

If Bayern Munich is to have any chance of a sixth straight semifinal appearance in the Champions League it will have to do something that only one team has achieved this season - defeat Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. "Hopefully we have corrected the mistakes that we made in the first leg".

But he added: "Bayern has a lot of quality players and a great squad, we can't worry only about Lewandowski".

Madrid defend a 2-1 lead from the first leg against the German Champions, but will be without injured central defenders, Pepe and Rafael Varene, as well as Bale for the tie.

Arturo Vidal gave Bayern Munich the lead with his powerful header What's the latest Real Madrid news?

Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti spent two years in charge of Madrid, winning the Champions League, while midfielder Xabi Alonso was a member of that side in his five fruitful years in the Spanish capital.

UEFA have appointed Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai as the man in charge for the return leg of the Champions League Quarterfinals between Real Madrid and FC Bayern Munich. We know what we are going to do.

Bayern badly missed their injured leading scorer last week, but now he's back and they must make the very most of his firepower by giving him plenty of ammunition. Tomorrow he won't be there, we don't want to take any risks.

The Poland global has also shown he is capable of the spectacular against Madrid - he scored all four of Dortmund's goals in a 4-1 semi-final, first-leg rout back in 2013.

It sets up an enthralling second-leg to this quarter-final and here, we look at what each side needs to do in order to win the match and advance to the semi-finals.

Arjen Robben believes it possible for Bayern to salvage something in the match against Madrid, despite losing the first leg 2-1 at home.

The pair were the only two players who started Saturday's narrow 3-2 win away to Sporting Gijon, while others such as Dani Carvajal and Marcelo were rested.

"We've been rotating the team but the fact that he has appeared so sporadically in the Champions League is pure chance - it's just worked out that way", he said.

The Portuguese pipped long-time rival Lionel Messi to the century mark thanks to a double against Bayern Munich, with 97 of his 100 efforts coming in the Champions League proper.

The striker should be joined by first choice defensive pair Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng, but both face a race against time to be fit.

The French manager has confirmed that Gareth Bale won't be available but we don't know yet if Isco will be the replacement: "I've decided, but I won't comment it, not even if we'll change the formation".
