Madrid's Ramos: My Champions League dream

"I am very lucky to have won nearly every title at a professional level, but there is still the Champions League to win." Sergio Ramos speaks to UEFA.com about his Lisbon dream.

A central part, literally and metaphorically, in Real Madrid CF's staunch 1-0 UEFA Champions League semi-final first-leg defeat of FC Bayern München, Sergio Ramos is now a step closer to realising his "dream".

The defender has won almost everything there is to win in club and international football, with the exception of the trophy that means so much to Madrid. But if they can see off Bayern in Germany on Tuesday, Ramos will have a chance of his first European Cup winners' medal in Lisbon on 24 May.

"For me, it is a dream to win the Champions League," Ramos told UEFA.com. "I am very lucky to have won nearly every title at a professional level, but there is still the Champions League to win. In no way has it ever been an obsession or a special love, but when there is something missing from your CV, it grabs your attention. It means a bit more. It's not a constant obsession, but it would be a dream come true. To finally lift the trophy would be very satisfying."
