If the midfielder had his way, he would like to feature in a final against his old club in Cardiff on June 3

Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso wants to face former club and titleholders Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Wenger 'revolted' by refereeing display

Alonso and Bayern moved a step closer to the Champions League decider in Cardiff on June 3 after crushing Arsenal 10-2 on aggregate in the round of 16.

Bayern made the most of their numerical advantage as the German champions eased past Arsenal 5-1 in Tuesday's return leg at the Emirates Stadium.

After booking a spot in the quarter-finals, Alonso - who won the Champions League with Madrid in 2013-14 - was asked to pick his ideal final and the Spanish veteran said via Radio Onda Cero: "A Bayern-Real Madrid final would not be bad."

"I think Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid are the strongest so facing them later [in the tournament] would be better."

Bayern's path to June's decider could be made easier if Barcelona are eliminated.

Horror show spells the end for Wenger

Barca trail Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 heading into Wednesday's second leg at Camp Nou.

"I would not rule out Barca," Alonso added. "It's very difficult but I do not rule it out."
