"We have a second leg at home and we are proud to be playing the semi-finals in front of our own fans".
"I am comfortable, we have done well, it is two and a half years that have been good but the rest, "Zidane's Real Madrid", let's wait a bit".
Last season, admittedly, was hard: Madrid had to beat Napoli, Bayern, Atletico and Juventus in the knockout stages. There was a festive atmosphere for the second leg, which was supposed to be a mere formality.
Zidane in a post- match conference after Madrid 2-1 win over Leganes said, "It could be Lucas". "That's going to be our goal". We're making too much fuss out of all this. "What drives this club is to try to do the maximum, all of us, to regret nothing", he said.
The reigning champions, who are bidding to win the competition for a third successive year, are firm favourites to book a trip to Kiev after recording a 2-1 triumph on German soil last week. Bayern didn't make its attacking dominance count in the first leg and it can not afford to be profligate on Tuesday given its standing in the tie.
Mitron, we just 'sold' the Red Fort!
The idea is to look after operations at the fort and this Unesco world heritage site for the next five years. They might put up signs outside to say that they have developed the amenities.
IAAF new rules may end Semenya reign
Two years earlier, Semenya clocked a 1-minute, 55-second time to win her first world title as a teenager in Berlin. This would come as a big blow to South African athlete and world 800 metres champion, Caster Semanya.
James: Cool Thursday morning, dry comfortable day
It's a quiet start on radar over the Panhandle, but you don't have to look far off to find rain showers heading our way. A small chance of rain as well from the leftovers of the possible system swinging from the south to the northeast.
"I'll obviously keep doing all I can to stay on track [to play]".
"We need to attack", he affirmed. "We will get our chances in Madrid".
Leganes was unfortunate to go two goals down at the interval after coming to close to scoring on three occasions, including Watford loanee Nordin Amrabat striking the crossbar.
This season, they had a celebrity clash against PSG, a team based even more around the cult of the individual than Madrid, then an aging Juve side that should have gone out to Tottenham in the previous round, and now an ever more superannuated Bayern who are racked by injuries.
Another Champions League title would also see them move ahead of other legendary teams, such as the 1970s Bayern and Ajax sides, the Liverpool team of 1977-85, the AC Milan teams of 1988-94 and 2003-07, the Real Madrid team of 1998-2003, and the Barcelona team of 2009-15.
Heynckes, however, is unconcerned about that statistic and called for his players to be more clinical after they wasted a number of opportunities last week.
