Bayern faces tough task to beat Real Madrid at Bernabeu

Javi Martinez is banned after his first-leg red card, while Bayern may also be without the injured Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng, who both missed the Leverkusen clash. In fact, Bayern last beat Real Madrid at the Bernabeu in May 2001 thanks to a goal by Giovane Elber (1-0).

The French manager has confirmed that Gareth Bale won't be available but we don't know yet if Isco will be the replacement: "I've decided, but I won't comment it, not even if we'll change the formation".

" The first leg result is not definitive, so we need to play another great game".

Madrid, seeking its first league title since 2012, has a three-point lead and a game in hand.

All five previous teams winning 2-1 away from home in the first leg of their Champions League knockout tie have progressed to the next round.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored both first-leg goals for Madrid in Munich, is set to start on Tuesday along with Karim Benzema. We've got an excellent outcome but we are going to continue in exactly the same manner and take nothing for granted.

Isco stood out with two goals including a last-gasp victor in Saturday's game, but he has been used sparingly in Europe this season, getting just 77 minutes in total across Madrid's nine Champions League games to date.

Spain attacking midfielder Isco, who scored twice, including a last minute victor, in Madrid's 3-2 win over Sporting Gijon on Saturday, is likely to replace Bale - but Zidane was keep his cards close to his chest. Bayern play the same at home or away.

"He's worked hard to get back with the team and after his injury, three months off, he returned really keen", said Zidane.

That leaves Sergio Ramos and Nacho Fernandez as the pairing at the heart of the defence for Real, who are also without forward Gareth Bale owing to his calf injury. But we have many games, many competitions, and we will see tomorrow what will happen.

"That is a plus for Bayern, but he is their player".

Cristiano Ronaldo scored the two goals which turned the first meeting in his side's favour, making him the first man to score 100 goals in European competition.
