The Bayern Munich boss spoke to the press ahead of the visit of Real Madrid and said he did not think either side are clear favourites.

Semi-finals: "When you get to the last four all the four teams are sides with great quality. Wednesday’s game is going to be an absolute cracker.”

Cristiano Ronaldo: "I have a lot of respect for Cristiano Ronaldo. His career speaks for itself. But in the Champions League the most complete team wins. We have a great striker in Lewandowski, who has scored 39 goals this season.”

Zidane: “I am a huge fan of Zinedine Zidane and I hold a lot of respect for him as a player and a person. He is an example to others.”

Favourites: “It’s going to be a wonderful game for football fans. Both sides play attractive football. For me, neither side are clear favourites, but I have a good feeling.”

Heynckes: "James is a top-class player"

Bayern form: “We are in a similar position to the one we were in 2012-13, but we still have a very strong rival in our path.”

Injury concerns: “We’ll decide whether or not to include Alaba and Tolisso in the sqaud early on Wednesday.”

James Rodríguez: “Our fans are very happy when they see James out on the pitch. He is an integral part of Bayern Munich. He is a top-class player and has that magic touch. He’s even learning German.”

Boateng: “We have enjoyed a lot of success together. Jerome is incredibly powerful as a player and he’s a leader in the dressing room. It is with players like him that you win the Champions League.”
