Bayern in bullish mood for Real

Robert Lewandowski

FC Bayern München are in a bullish and determined mood ahead of the club's UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg tie on Tuesday against Real Madrid.

The Bavarians are facing a 2-1 deficit against the Champions League holders and have plenty of work to do if they are to triumph in the match at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club's official website, "The squad have great character. Bayern Munich are renowned for showing extraordinary desire in these types of games. We'll give everything. It would be great if the team can turn it around."

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer added, "We’re always capable of scoring two goals, and in a short space of time – regardless of who we’re playing."

Club president Uli Hoeneb concluded, "Whoever plays will give everything for the cause. They all have the quality and the right to play in the quarter-finals of the Champions League."

Bayern are buoyed by the news that prolific striker Robert Lewandowski is available while Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels have travelled to Spain but are in doubt.
