Real Madrid midfielder Isco is pushing hard to make the squad against Bayern Munich on Tuesday in the second leg of the clash as the Spanish ace aim to prove his fitness level in training.

Franck Ribery has issued a battle cry before Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg at Real Madrid where Bayern Munich know they must be ruthless in front of goal to stage an unlikely comeback. A 2-1 win for Bayern would mean extra time, while even winning 1-0 would eliminate the Germans.

"There are many better coaches than me, but I have had the chance to live with this Real Madrid squad and do the things we have done". "We need to go out to score quickly and that's what we'll try to do", Zidane told a news conference.

The onus is on Bayern to take the attack to Real. "But we can not make the same mistakes again and I think on Tuesday we'll have to go into the match with more determination than we've ever had before".

Bayern paid attention to Madrid's recent struggles.

Leganes was unfortunate to go two goals down at the interval after coming to close to scoring on three occasions, including Watford loanee Nordin Amrabat striking the crossbar. It can feel as though players at Real Madrid are signed less for how they will fit into the team than how they fill suit the marketing strategy. "They are not invincible despite what many people may think".

Though there are indications that Nacho could return but Vazquez who was deployed to the right back in the first leg at Allianz Arena could be the only available options.

"We know things are going to be hard, Madrid are used to very important games but so are we". "Bale needs to do the same as he has been doing", Zidane said. The big guns were back in action on Monday though with the likes of Luka Modric, Marcelo and Sergio Ramos also returning. "I can adapt. It wouldn't be a problem for me".

Five years later, Bayern are bidding to keep their treble dreams alive with the Bundesliga title secured and the German Cup final to come on May 19.

With Cristiano Ronaldo's goal record virtually guaranteeing you a goal every game, that could be enough to see them through again.

"We need to be more efficient than in the first leg", Heynckes said.
