Real Madrid Achieves 3rd Consecutive Final

Real Madrid Achieves 3rd Consecutive Final

The former Juventus midfielder spoke to the press after his side held Bayern Munich 2-2 in the second leg of the semi-final to go through on a 4-3 aggregate.

Despite the Germans' effort to shake their rivals' net, Benzema exploited the goalkeeper's fault just a few seconds after the second half-time to score the second goal for Real Madrid.

"You have to see where we've come from, we were written off in October, so I have to give Jupp Heynckes a lot of praise", said Salihamidzic.

Zidane, however, said he and the rest of the Madrid squad had kept their faith in the striker despite his struggles.

Real coach Zinedine Zidane has had to face nearly weekly questions from the media about Benzema's form and where it left his future at the club, and the forward came in for renewed scrutiny after a poor display last Saturday against Leganes.

Zinedine Zidane's side continue to rewrite the history books, with the club preparing for a third successive final and a 16th in total - with their manager yet to suffer a defeat in continental knockout competition.




The goal meant Bayern had to score two more goals to knock Real out and they only managed one, from James Rodriguez.

When quizzed on whether a penalty should have been awarded, the Brazil global added: "Well, if it hit my hand, I'd say so".

"It's a bad thing for a player to live through", said Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes. Real Madrid is aiming to win it for the third time in a row in the current format when the face Liverpool who is also targeting the title for the six time.

"During the course of your career, you have your ups and downs, but they've shown that they can be relied upon at key times". After the first leg Kimmich had been disappointed with Bayern's naivety but there could be no such complaints this week. "Going to a final is really nice but winning is even nicer". "His goals gave us a chance to advance".

"It was a very hard match", Navas said.

"We really wanted to go to the final, we did our best and then this unnecessary mistake happened - I can not explain it."I'm sorry. for my team and for you fans". "Not just because of the goals, but his overall performance was fantastic".
