Zidane: Madrid v Bayern is 'master v pupil'

The Real Madrid boss has been quizzed about the Champions League draw in his pre-match press conference and this is what he's had to say...

“We are up against a very good team, very hard rival. But that is what we got. We can do nothing about it," he told reporters.

"Bayern are a very strong team, playing very well. It will be a very nice game for the fans of both teams, and world of football.

“It will be Master v pupil for sure. I was with him [Ancelotti] as assistant, l learned a lot from him. A great person."

Zlatan happy with the draw

It's fair to say Zlatan Ibrahimovic will fancy facing Anderlecht. The striker scored FOUR against them back in 2013 as PSG won 5-0 - his third goal was so special even the home fans applauded.

'Right time to face Barcelona'

That's the view of Pavel Nedved at least...

"It's a fascinating challenge, against one of the most famous clubs in the world. It's really beautiful but we must now look to the past but the present, knowing that they are strong. The best team will win," he told Sky Sport Italia.

"In my opinion, we have definitely grown (since 2015 final). I believe that maybe this game is coming at the right moment for us. We have to respect Barcleona but not too much because that leads to fear and that's not good. I believe that our team is at the same level as Barcelona."

Madrid not happy with draw

Emilio Butragueno says the holders Real Madrid will not be happy with their draw after they were paired with Bayern Munich.

He says: "One of the worst opponents we could get, no doubt. For them too. Better to have got them later in competition.

"Carlo is a great coach, with so much experience. He is a gentleman who knows a lot about football. So not such good news for us.”
