Sergio Ramos urges Real Madrid to focus on 'world class' Bayern and not Barcelona

Jose Mourinho's men are within touching distance of their 32nd La Liga title, but the Spain international insists that Los Blancos must concentrate on that task at hand

Sergio Ramos is hoping that Real Madrid will not allow this weekend's Clasico to affect its focus ahead of Tuesday night's Champions League first leg clash with Bayern Munich.

Los Blancos are currently four points clear of Barcelona at the summit of La Liga and, given that there are just five rounds of the domestic campaign remaining, Jose Mourinho's men will all but seal the title if they triumph at Camp Nou on Saturday evening.

However, Ramos points out that Madrid simply cannot allow itself to be distracted by its imminent trip to Catalunya if it is to secure a positive result at the Allianz Arena.

"We must not think about Barcelona or the Spanish title," the Spain international told reporters in Munich on Monday evening. "We are playing in the Champions League semi-final against Bayern. We are playing against a world-class team.

"They have a lot of quality in their team and players like [Arjen] Robben or [Mario] Gomez who can make the difference."

Madrid's eagerly-awaited encounter with Bayern will kickoff at 2:45 p.m. ET.
