Reporter's view: Jupp Heynckes has maintained that teamwork rather than individual talent is key to winning the UEFA Champions League – encouraging talk as Bayern aim to repeat their 2013 treble. However, Real Madrid are back-to-back winners for a reason, and Cristiano Ronaldo scored four of their six goals when these sides met last season. Keeping him muzzled could be critical.

"Some coaches never get to places like this in their careers. I'm a modest man – I approach these matches without emotions. They definitely come during the game, though. It will be a spectacle for all football fans. I've faced some fantastic coaches in my time, like Johan Cruyff and Marcelo Lippi. I'm an admirer of Zinédine Zidane. I really like the way Real Madrid play football under him."

"I have huge respect for what Jupp Heynckes has achieved at Bayern and Real Madrid. I can only repay his compliments. We will need a big performance. Bayern are a great club with great team spirit. I don't think there are favourites. I have no doubts, though, that mentally we will be at 150% tomorrow."
