Zidane: "We won't shit ourselves against Bayern"
Zinedine Zidane and Toni Kroos faced the press before Real Madrid's game against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night in the Champions League. Both men were typically cagey in their answers with Kroos praising the work done by Jupp Heynckes in his return to the club. Zidane was upbeat and answered questions on James Rodriguez but none on Gareth Bale ahead of the game.

Zidane was asked what the difference is between when he was a player and now and he said, "Nothing has changed. Anything can happen but we won't shit ourselves. I always enjoy these occasions."

The Real Madrid manager was referring to the UEFA Cup final in 1996 when hs Bordeaux side were hammered 5-1 by Bayern over two legs. He also said there are no favourites for the tie despite Bayern pushing the label on his side, which is something he never likes.

Zinedine Zidane press conference: as it happened

Real Madrid are already in Germany as they prepare for battle against Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening. Los Blancos, by their very high standards, haven't had the most successful of seasons, however, with a upturn in form since 2018 arrived, find themselves in the Champions League semi finals, just three games away from an unprecedented third consecutive title.
