Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has insisted that his future at the side will not be determined by winning the Champions League this term.

"I loved these games Bayern against Real, it's like the Clasico of the Champions League", Lizarazu said.

The pair both took part in team training on Sunday in Munich.

With the surprisingly profilic Sandro Wagner waiting in the wings for a chance to prove himself on the continent, Lewandowski will need to end his European drought on Tuesday. The Polish worldwide was well below his best in the first leg and received a lot of criticism due to his poor finishing.

But in a contest where Bayern suffered some cruel refereeing decisions, he was comfortably eclipsed by Cristiano Ronaldo as Madrid went on to win 4-2 after extra-time.

Unbeaten and high scoring: to attain this Real Madrid went on a sensational run.

- FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) April 29, 20183. Jerome Boateng, another casualty from last week, Kingsley Coman and Arturo Vidal will all miss out. The tall centre-back Niklas Sule should start, with Juan Bernat likely to deputise for Alaba if required.

He told Socrates magazine: "I've experienced everything at Bayern, and I am slowly coming to a point where I must answer myself certain questions". He is a young center-back with a lot of potential that is unknown by many outside of Germany.

Ribery is desperate for a crack at another Champions League final. He has been training with the first team and should be available for the game on Tuesday.

When comparing Real's achievements to those of their more recent counterparts, they still outshine the likes of the mid-2000s Milan side or the early 2010s Barca side. But regular left-back David Alaba has been passed fit after missing their home tie.

Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir will be handling a game involving Real Madrid for the third time this season with the first one in Wembley when Madrid lost to Tottenham 3-1 in the group stage. Last week's first leg was their 25th clash in the competition, but it really did not live up to expectations, especially considering many were disappointed it could not be the final when the draw was made. Nevertheless, he was still called upon and had to make a couple of decent saves to keep his side alive in the match.

Last week's result means that Bayern have lost their last six meetings against Madrid, with the Bundesliga side's honourary president Franz Beckenbauer anxious that maybe his club now have a "complex" against the Spanish giants.
