Bayern, Robben ruled out of Real Madrid clash

"It was three unique years when I won many titles", James said at his pre-match media conference.

The five-time Ballon d'Or winner's best moment in this fixture came in the quarter-finals last season when he scored five of Madrid's six goals in their 6-3 aggregate victory. "One of the strengths of Real is that opponents are not all the same and we study them carefully to learn how to hurt them", Ramos explained. "We know what happened against Juventus and against Bayern past year", Zidane said. Isco is all but out of the equation after failing to overcome injury, leaving Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio - and Vazquez if he doesn't play in defence - contesting the remaining spots.

"We are prepared and we are going to give it all we've got to make it to the final". Isco might be injected with a painkilling injection and Zinedine Zidane would be willing to take the risk if his medical staff are confident that there is minimal chance of making the injury worse.

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.

Real Madrid have scored in each of their last 41 Champions League games at the Bernabeu, last failing to find the net in April 2011 against Barcelona (0-2).

"Real Madrid has shown that it can be vulnerable even when playing at home", Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes said through a translator. I saw positive things but there are things to be fixed.

Leganes forward Gabriel was sent off after the final whistle for reacting furiously to the referee for ending the game just as he was shaping to shoot at goal from outside the area.
