thumbnail Hello,

The Dutchman is confident that the Bundesliga giants will find the net in Wednesday's clash, and feels that Los Blancos face a difficult task to reach the tournament's showpiece

Roy Makaay believes that Bayern Munich have a good chance to reach the Champions League final at the expense of Real Madrid.
REAL MADRID - BAYERN PREVIEW

The Bavarians recorded a 2-1 home win in the first leg of the tie last week, and the former Netherlands international feels Jupp Heynckes' men have what it takes to cause Los Blancos plenty of problems in Wednesday's return at the Santiago Bernabeu as well.

"I am convinced that Bayern will score at least one goal. So if Real Madrid want to go through, they need to find the net twice or more," Makaay stated to Algemeen Dagblad.

"Bayern deservedly won the first leg. Real Madrid didn't impress in defence. [Alvaro] Arbeloa was outplayed by [Franck] Ribery last week. But if they offer Arbeloa more support this time, Arjen Robben will get a lot more space, and you don't want that either.

"It's nice that Bayern can reach the final in their own Allianz Arena. The whole club is excited about it."

It took Makaay exactly 10 seconds to score the fastest goal in the history of the Champions League when playing for Bayern Munich against Real Madrid in season 2006-07.
