In crucial moment, Benzema finally comes through for Madrid

Gareth Bale

James Rodriguez says Bayern Munich are working to get over their UEFA Champions League semi-final loss to Real Madrid, whilst pouring water on any notion of an early return to the Spanish capital. Real Madrid is having little to play for in the La Liga after Barcelona has wrapped up the La Liga title with 4 games to go and Zidane is keen on not dropping his players to the bench for the fact that the La Liga is gone.

"Look, we were in the League Cup final and we didn't win it. People don't tell me in the street since then: 'Thank you for bringing us to the final.' We were in the Europa League final", the Coach said.

"Liverpool are strong in those areas and they can really hurt this Madrid team".

"In football, you have to suffer", Zidane said.

Salah is in the running for the European Golden Shoe and has a scored a phenomenal 43 goals for the Reds in all competitions this season - ten of which have come in the Champions League. "People are always trying to minimise our success, but we're used to that", said the Croatian.

"Karim showed in a Champions League semi-final, as he did past year, how good a player he is", Zidane said."He never gave up and I am happy for him, but I had Karim's back as I would have done for all my players". I think that we played better than we did in Munich but in a different way.

Iran's Foreign Minister: We Won't Renegotiate The Nuclear Deal
The deal's critics are unmoved, and they are pushing for what they consider a long-overdue confrontation with Tehran . Tehran's hegemonic efforts in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Syria would remain untouched, if not intensify in retaliation.

With the scores level at 1-1 just after the break, Ulreich's blunder gifted Karim Benzema his second goal and gave Real the lead.

"It's an incredible achievement for Real Madrid, third year on the spin reaching the final, but it was desperate at times in the second leg against Bayern".

Don Balon's report also claims that Cristiano Ronaldo has raised some concerns about the manager possibly dropping some of Real Madrid's star players for the final.

First of all, except their clear win against Juventus in Turin, Real Madrid did not dominate any of their games after the group stage.

"I believe not just Bayern but all of Germany and the football world will pay our team, head coach Jupp Heynckes and his coaching team the greatest respect". "Perhaps Bayern did more than us, we were not the better team, but in both games we were more effective", he said.

"It was a fantastic game, we invested everything in our performance but we did not do everything right, we lacked a bit of luck, especially in the box".
