The crippling injury crisis that may have cost Bayern Champions League glory

The German global spoke to reports ahead of the return leg of the Champions League semi-final, with the Bundesliga champions being forced to overcome a 2-1 loss from the first leg.

Real hold a 2-1 lead after the first leg in Germany last week, however the Frenchman insists the job is nowhere near complete. His uncle Miguel Angel Nadal said something very interesting about Rafa's passion for football. Muller has still never scored against Los Blancos - and a feature of both their Bayern careers is now losing Champions League semifinals to La Liga opponents - while Barcelona and Atletico Madrid have also eliminated the Bavarians.

"Whoever stands on the pitch will have to go to their limits if we want to be successful". A 3-2 loss, however, would send Bayern Munich through to the final. Bayern Munich has a pair, last winning in 2013, while Liverpool has one title in the current era, taking home the cup in 2005.

"But what matters to me is what we are doing now, how we play tomorrow against Bayern".

As Bayern try to engineer an upset they can take inspiration from Juventus who went down fighting with a 3-1 win in Madrid in the quarter-finals after losing 3-0 in Turin, bowing out 4-3 on aggregate.

Bayern paid attention to Madrid's recent struggles. "They are not invincible despite what many people may think". Youngster Achraf Hakimi is Carvajal's immediate substitute but he has not impressed.

Real captain Sergio Ramos, who used to play as a right-back, could also end up on the flank.

"When Zizou has to gamble, he does, because he is the boss", Ramos said. "I can adapt. It wouldn't be a problem for me". Nacho and Lucas Vazquez are likely to fill in at the crucial right-back spot which will be put to test by Bayern French Ribery Franck Ribery, who was highly influential in the first leg. Isco's absence, meanwhile, would likely bring in Gareth Bale in the starting XI.

Real are trying to win a third straight European title, and fourth in five seasons.

Robert Lewandowski leads the Bayern line as expected, aiming to build on a record that has seen him score 39 times in all competitions this season, while James Rodriguez starts against his parent club.

"We need to minimise our mistakes and we want to change a few things from the first leg", he said. We're making too much fuss out of all this.
