thumbnail Hello,

The Bayern supremo has expressed his delight with the first-leg victory over Los Blancos, and feels that the Bavarians have put themselves in a good position to advance

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed his satisfaction with his side's 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie.

Rummenigge admitted that the Bavarians were perhaps a bit lucky to score a late winner at the Allianz Arena, but feels that they have every chance of reaching the final of the competition in next week's return leg in the Spanish capital.

"At the end we had luck on our side and we won 2-1. We can be proud of the victory. We’re not without a chance in Madrid," Rummenigge stated to the official Bayern website.

"It was an emotion-laden match. Real Madrid showed just what a good team they are. They played very well at the start, but they were a little shocked by our goal.

"What they have up front with [Karim] Benzema, [Mesut] Ozil and Cristiano Ronaldo is really first class."

Both sides meet again at the Santiago Bernabeu on April 25.
