Bale out of Bayern return, doubt for Clasico

Bale out of Bayern return, doubt for Clasico

Coach Zinedine Zidane said the forward has not fully recovered from a muscle injury in his right leg and will miss the second leg match at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. We will put out a team that will do everything to win. We don't want to risk anything with him but he should be ready in a few days.

The Poland worldwide missed last Wednesday's first leg as Der FCB surrendered a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 at the Allianz Arena, but Lewandowski has told German newspaper Bild (h/t AS' Carlos Forjanes): "I'm ready to play".

Bayern's preferred center-back duo Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels face a race against time to be fit, while Javi Martinez is suspended after being sent-off in the first leg. "They're all ready to play and that's the most important thing for me", he said. We know they can harm the rival but they have also flaws, like all the teams.

The Poland worldwide missed the initial leg of the Champions League quarter final tie because of shoulder injury but is likely to go back to the starting XI in Spain.

"Small details decided the first leg and we have to focus on those", said Ancelotti. In fact, Bayern last beat Real Madrid at the Bernabeu in May 2001 thanks to a goal by Giovane Elber (1-0). But he added: 'Bayern have a lot of quality players and a great squad, we can't worry only about Lewandowski'.

Real Madrid have reached the semis in each of the previous 6 seasons.

IEA says global oil market now close to balance
The combination of factors could keep a lid on oil prices, which have risen in the past six months after a three-year slump. Meanwhile, it said, OPEC's oil production fell by 365,000 barrels a day in March as Nigeria and Libya suffered outages.

In addition to all of that, Ronaldo is the first footballer to have won the European Golden Shoe in two different leagues (with Manchester United in 2007-08 and Real Madrid in 2010-11, 2013-14 and 2014-15).

In the Champions League, the defending European champions have been unbeaten at home in 12 consecutive matches, winning nine of the last 10. Madrid was eventually eliminated 4-3 on aggregate after a 2-2 draw in Vigo.

Real last kept a clean sheet against minnows Alaves on April 2 and have not looked solid at the back all season.

Even Fabio Coentrao has played more minutes than Isco in the Champions League: "There is no explanation".

Ancelotti will speak to the press at 18:30 alongside captain Philipp Lahm and ex-Real midfielder Xabi Alonso, before the German champions train at 19:00.

The Portuguese scored twice in Munich to become the first player ever to make it to 100 club goals in UEFA competitions and, with 97 in the Champions League, he is also the leading scorer in the continental competition - three ahead of Barcelona's Lionel Messi.
