Isco has put up a classic performance for Real Madrid this season in Champions League but he is largely distracted by transfer interest from Manchester City and Zidane knows so well that he is distracted by such speculations.

Marcelo and Toni Kroos both weaved their way into Bayern's six-yard box, but failed to pick a final pass, while at the other end, Vazquez was enduring a torrid time at right back.

"If Liverpool are going to play like they did in Rome, they are not going to win the Champions League", he told the Mirror.

"They were hanging on, they were all over the place at the back".

But Bayern could not muster the third goal to overcome Karim Benzema's double in between - the first a header, and the second a simple finish following a howler by Ulreich.

Prof Brohi, who is also a trauma surgeon at the Royal London, is clinical director of the London Major Trauma System Directorate. Thirty-one of the 47 murders committed in London this year, as of early April, used knives, Reuters reported .

"Words can't describe how disappointed I am for being knocked out", he wrote on Instagram.

"We were the best team in both games but we were not able to reach the final", Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes said. "I'm sorry. for my team and for you fans".

While PFA and FWA Player of the Year Mohamed Salah, the star of the first leg, had something of a quiet night, Mane was Liverpool's brightest spark in attack. It's on us tonight. "We pressed up front and got the second goal". The Brazilian defender blocked a shot from Joshua Kimmich in the penalty area at the end of the first half with the score at 1-1but Turkish referee Cuneyt Cakir gave a corner. "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". Benzema's two goals here were another feather in the cap for coach Zinedine Zidane, who had made a decision to start the French striker, despite only one goal in his previous 12 games.

And Real captain Sergio Ramos believes the pedigree of his team, who are chasing an unprecedented third Champions League trophy in a row, makes them favourites whoever they face.

"Nothing is easy. Football is like that, you have to suffer. That is the soul of this team", he said.
