Jupp Heynckes, the head coach and manager of Bayern Munchen talked to media ahead of the ‘European Clasico’.
Real Madrid plays Bayern Munchen in the second leg of UEFA Champions League Semi Final which will be hosted in the home stadium of Madrid, Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
The Bayern Munchen coach had some fears of bias and did not refrain from talking about it.
“I hope the referee is objective and that the players are the ones who decide the game.”
Bayern Munchen has lost last 6 games against Real Madrid but that shouldn’t matter for Jupp who believes it will be an equally challenging match for both the sides.
“It doesn’t matter how many times we lost against Real Madrid because I was not the coach of Bayern.”
“Tuesday is another game and these things don’t matter. It will be a very difficult match for us, but also for them.”
Several news outlets in Spain such as Marca earlier reported that Real Madrid is preparing ‘hell’ for Bayern, referring to the magnitude of intimate atmosphere in Santiago Bernabeu.
The ex-Real Madrid manager is no stranger to the atmosphere of Bernabeu and believes he can still get a favorable result.
“The atmosphere will be fiery, but I have players with a lot of experience and we want to get to the final. We can move mountains.”
Bayern Munchen visits the Spanish giants with a 2-1 deficit score which can be changed on aggregate. Jupp claims to have analyzed the mistakes of the first leg and now is motivated to improvise in the second leg tonight.
“We have to be more effective than the first leg. In Munich Real had three chances and scored two.”
“We’ve scored a lot of goals during the season, it’s our characteristic, and that’s what’s important.”
“I have confidence in my staff and we have to find a balance, an inner peace, to know what needs to be done in each moment.”
If Bayern doesn’t manage to score at least 2 goals tonight they won’t be able to advance. On the other hand, we have seen comebacks of all sorts as that of AS Roma in the last round. Hence, you don’t need more reasons to watch this epic and historical fixture.
The most played match in UEFA Champions League is Bayern Munchen vs Real Madrid, often dubbed as ‘European Clasico’.
The match will be broadcasted all around the globe at 7:45 PM CET on Tuesday, 1st May 2018.
