Franck Ribery has warned his team-mates that Bayern Munich are not in the Champions League final yet despite beating Real Madrid 2-1 in the first leg of their semi-final tie.

The France international was delighted with his side's victory at the Allianz Arena, but feels that a tough task awaits in the return next week.

"I think it was very important for our confidence to win the home game against Madrid," Ribery was quoted as saying on the official Uefa website.

"It was a lot of fun tonight, especially with the crowd behind us, but we're only halfway there. The game in Madrid is going to be very, very tough.

"I don't think their goal will change much with regard to our tactics in the second leg. We'll stay compact, just like we did tonight. Madrid will need to attack us and that should give us the opportunity to counter."

The second leg takes place at the Santiago Bernabeu on April 25.
