“We don’t have to change anything regarding what we’ve been doing. We have to be focused and determined. We know we’re playing the second leg and that we did very well in the first leg, but now we have to show that we want to get through.”
Zidane admits that it is a fantastic feeeling to play another semifinal and fight to get to the final, adding, “The only thing we’re thinking about is going out and giving everything to make it to the final. It’s what drives us all on, the fans, the club, the team want to give everything to get to”
“They’ve trained with us and now we have a bit of time to think about what we’re going to do. The important thing is that the players are 100 per cent.”
He believes Bayern would be preapared to give Madrid a good fight, adding, “they’re a great club and we’re aware of that. We have to be prepared as
always, putting in a big performance. I have no doubt that the opponents will come here without any complexes and have a great game.”
