Former Real Madrid star, Ronaldo de Lima has revealed that he won't be attending Tuesday's Champions League semifinal second battle between his old club and Bayern Munich. His uncle Miguel Angel Nadal said something very interesting about Rafa's passion for football.

The French tactician rested most of his players in their last weekend La Liga game 2-1 win against Leganes in order to ensure they are fresh and invigorated to face Bayern Munich. These unconverted opportunities and errors culminated when keeper Sven Ulreich slipped at the beginning of the second half on a pass back and let Madrid's Karim Benzema capitalize on an easy tap-in.

NAIJ.com will be bringing you our esteem readers, live updates of the UEFA Champions League semi final. Ronaldo, who got both goals in the first leg and one in regulation in the second, scored twice in extra time to complete a hat trick and save Madrid from elimination.

Holders Real have the advantage after their smash-and-grab 2-1 win in Munich a week ago, but were exposed defensively throughout the first leg.

Around 120,000 have fled overseas , including 32,500 to Lebanon and 17,000 to Jordan, according to Unrwa. The last remaining hospital in Yarmouk was bombed and can no longer offer care to the sick and injured.

Zinedine Zidane's side take a 2-1 lead into the home leg of their semi-final against five-time winners Bayern Munich. Despite a goal from Colombian James Rodríguez in the 63rd minute of the 2-2 second leg, Bayern couldn't overcome a flurry of head-scratching mistakes. In the first leg, we lacked that constant focus during the game. "Every striker, including myself, has phases where they don't score", said Heynckes at his pre-match press conference.

Bayern looked to respond within minutes when David Alaba's long range shot deflected on it's way to goal, but Navas did well to save.

"They are a big club with a great team and like always they will try to play a great game and impose themselves on proceedings". Robert Lewandowski shanked one half-chance just wide on 20 minutes, and Franck Ribery was unsafe down the left, tearing up Lucas Vazquez who was filling in at right-back for the injured Dani Carvajal. This is the third time in as many years and the fourth time in five that they have reached the title clash.

"The key for us is think about winning the game and to go on to the pitch wanting to do that".
