Zidane Explains Why Real Won't Give Barca Guard Of Honour

Heynckes Bows Out In Europe After Bayern 'Adventure' Heynckes, 72, retires in Europe after the "adventure" of Bayern

Real Madrid's passage to a third consecutive Champions League final after their 2-2 draw at home to Bayern Munich was described as being akin to a miracle in the media after they rode their luck for the third game running.

Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich gifted Benzema his second goal by misjudging a poor back-pass from Corentin Tolisso to allow the Frenchman to tap into an empty net.

Real Madrid and Liverpool both survived second leg scares to set the stage for a blockbuster Champions League final.

Real will face the victor of Wednesday's semi-final second leg between Roma and Liverpool in Kiev later this month.

"For me, the best players are the ones that make a difference in the big games". The Brazilian defender blocked a shot from Joshua Kimmich in the penalty area at the end of the first half with the score at 1-1 but Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir gave a corner.

By successfully defending its 2-1 win from last week, Madrid stayed on track for a third consecutive European title, and fourth in five seasons. If I say it does not hit me, I'm lying, but football is like that.

For sure, it has been a odd season in the Champions League.


"Our tribute, like I said the other day, is that he is a player we admire, he's not just any player, and how he is as a person is something we all know", the coach said.

In the final again after a insane game: "Yes, I think that whenever these teams play it will be a insane game".

Zidane, however, said he and the rest of the Madrid squad had kept their faith in the striker despite his struggles.

"We know things are going to be hard, Madrid are used to very important games but so are we".

Roma may have fallen just short but it was not for lack of trying by Dzeko, who scored seven minutes after the break to give the Italians fresh hope and was their best player overall in the two legs against Liverpool. We played with great fight, incredible passion and courage.

There you have it, a Champions League final that no one imagined two months ago. "But we will be really on fire, you can imagine". "We have to focus on the game and on playing with intensity".

"We really wanted to go to the final, we did our best and then this unnecessary mistake happened - I can not explain it".
