"I never had any problem with him, he just wanted to play".

Real have dominated the rivalry in recent years, though, with their victory 12 months ago following a record 4-0 thumping of then-holders Bayern in Bavaria in 2014. They have competed in the knockout stages of the Champions League 11 times, including three times in the last six seasons.

"We can't shit our trousers before a game like this, you have to enjoy it", said Zidane with a grin.

Javi Martinez was sent off in Real's 2-1 win in Munich and Arturo Vidal also had two bookings when Bayern lost 4-2 after extra time in Madrid.

Sergio Ramos and Ronaldo each scored twice for Madrid in the return match.

Real Madrid may be the two-time defending champions in the UEFA Champions League, but their manager-Zinedine Zidane- has predicted that Bayern Munich could make them suffer in the first leg of their semi-final at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

Colombia playmaker James joined Bayern on loan from Madrid in August and lines up in central midfield alongside Spain worldwide Javi Martinez for Jupp Heynckes' side.

"Arjen Robben, Lewandowski and Franck Ribery are three very hard players to defend against", admitted Real right-back Dani Carvajal.

Minnesota Timberwolves: 3 takeaways from Game 3 vs. Rockets
Minnesota made exactly half its shots (45-for-90) in Game 3 after shooting just 41.3 per cent the first two games of the series. The Timberwolves are all but dead if they fall behind 3-1 in the series so this is basically a must-win game for them.

Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski is in the opposite role to Bale as he has been regularly touted to become Real's next Galactico.

The first leg in Munich ended in a 1-1 draw with goals by Makaay in the 75th minute and Roberto Carlos in the 83rd.

"This is our last chance to win a title". It was a fantastic feeling when the whistle went and Madrid were European champions again.

Bayern also won the teams' first two matchups, in the semifinals in 1976 and 1987. The Bavarians' 6-2 destruction of Bayer Leverkusen in the DFB Cup semi-finals last Tuesday means the treble is still very much on - something the club achieved during Heynckes' previous tenure at the club, in the 2012/13 season.
