Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is delighted with the form of Keylor Navas and Karim Benzema.

The former Juventus midfielder spoke to the press after his side held Bayern Munich 2-2 in the second leg of the semi-final to go through on a 4-3 aggregate.

"In the second half against Bayern Munich, I felt Madrid needed the threat going forwards that Bale can provide", Keown told the Daily Mail. "I'm not the only one who believed in him, the players did too and tonight the fans showed their appreciation", added the Frenchman. If I say it does not hit me, I'm lying, but football is like that.

Heynckes said he expected a competent performance from the Turkish official.

"I do not talk about the referees, but it is clear that sometimes it is wrong in our favor and other times against".

In last season's quarter-final meeting with Real at the Bernabeu, Bayern were left incensed after Arturo Vidal was controversially sent off and Madrid scored two goals that looked to be from offside positions.

Bayern had also been wasteful in the 2-1 first-leg defeat by Real in the first leg at the Allianz Arena.

Which is why, even though Real have won two Champions League titles back-to-back, it doesn't feel like the end of an era, rather, it feels like the beginning of something special. "People are always trying to minimise our success, but we're used to that", said the Croatian. "Then we gifted a goal and in the end you can not let that happen twice in a semi-final like this", said Bayern forward Thomas Mueller.

"The referee did a good job, we didn't lose because of him", said Bayern forward Thomas Mueller.

"Then you don't have to wonder why you are leaving the pitch as the defeated team".
