Juventus will treat Madrid match 'like a final'

Bayern have participated 22 times in the Champions League since 1992, meaning they have featured in the last eight a highly impressive 81% of the time.

In an even first half, Real keeper Keylor Navas kept his side in front with quick reflexes to thwart Gonzalo Higuain at close range, while at the other end Toni Kroos had a shot against the bar with Gianluigi Buffon beaten.

Real Madrid lifted their 12th Champions League crown - and second under Zidane - with a 4-1 win last May, but the Frenchman insisted "ten months ago was a completely different situation".

With Madrid out of this season's La Liga title race, and embarrassed in the Copa del Rey by Leganes, his future in the job may now depend on Madrid becoming the first team to win three consecutive European Cups since the mid-1970s. "Because we probably won't be able to go forward in the tournament and that is a regret, a big regret, but it's also true that when you meet certain opponents, you must have a clear enough head to recognise they are objectively stronger".

"Especially (as) this is a two-legged clash it can not happen again". We also have positive memories against the top Champions League teams. I've got 24 very good players and I'm going to use them all.

"We want to build an advantage to then take to Madrid".

Having got the away goal, Real Madrid was seemingly content to sit back and hit Juventus on the counter and the Spanish side nearly doubled its lead 10 minutes from the break when Toni Kroos' fierce effort crashed off the crossbar from 25 yards.
