Ream Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti's take on the draw, "Bayern is the favourite, but is not easy to face Real Madrid. It will be hard, but we have hope to pass. The another match is so equal, because both teams play the same style.Guardiola has a lot of experience and it will be hard"
16:52 IST
Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer on the draw : "I am looking forward to play again at the Bernabeu. I have many positive memories when I think about that stadium. It was crazy to win the second leg of the semifinal two years ago by penalties. And I am curious about the mood in Madrid because Real and Atletico will play at home first. There will be supporters of all four semifinalists in the city on Tuesday and Wednesday. It surely will be a big party."
16:51 IST
Some more reactions from the Bayern Munich players. Club captain Lahm says "That's a fantastic semifinal. Two big clubs with a lot of tradition will meet each other. Bayern against Real - it can't get any bigger in European football at the moment. We want to prevail and reach the final, no doubt about it."
16:48 IST
"As far as Chelsea's concerned we've complied with loan rules. As far as the player concerned, he can play against Chelsea, if selected by them of course." Chelsea chief executive Ron Gourlay's take on the Courtois situation folks.
