Carlo Ancelotti, coach of Bayern Munich, spoke to the press ahead of his side's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Real Madrid at the Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid on Tuesday 18 April (kick-off 20:45 CEST), and the coach was optimistic about the chances of his side turning the tie around, trailing as they are 2-1 from the first leg, where a Ronaldo brace saw them lose at home. Ancelotti also confirmed that Lewandowski would be fit for the match, having been struggling with a shoulder injury.
How do Bayern Munich need to come out against Real Madrid?
For 60 minutes in Munich the match was good. We were in control, but we need to reduce the amount of mistakes. We need a perfect game, with character and courage.
Bayern Munich's players: Boateng and Hummels, Lewandowski?
Lewandowski is fine, like the rest, he has no problems. He's a player who scores goals, having him gives us confidence.
Jerome and Matts trained alone, but we'll see how they are with the ball. They've both got chances to play.
How do you see Benzema (who recently announced he'd lost 5 kilos)
He looks good. On fire.
Real Madrid are on a 54 game goal-scoring run...do you need more than a 0-2?
Real Madrid - Bayern Munich: 1-2, 0-2, 2-3... they are all good results. But it's better to look how at you're going to play than at results. Real Madrid score in all their games, but they also concede in all their games...
Ramos plays his 100th match in the Champions League and he's proven deadly in front of goal. What's the plan to stop him?
We've worked on dead-ball situations all year, and fortunately we don't give goals away at corners, just from direct free-kicks. He had the ball in the net in the first leg and he's always dangerous.
