MADRID, — As the countdown to the Champions League semi-final clash between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid intensifies, Bayern’s manager Thomas Tuchel calls on his players to embrace the childhood dream of facing off against the Spanish giants at the Bernabeu on Wednesday.

Following a hard-fought 2-2 draw in Germany last week, Bayern faces the daunting task of defeating Real Madrid on their home turf to secure a coveted spot in the final at Wembley Stadium.

With Bayer Leverkusen dethroning Bayern’s 11-year Bundesliga reign last month, the six-time European Cup winners are now solely focused on clinching Champions League glory this season.

Tuchel, in a bid to rally his squad ahead of the crucial encounter, emphasized the importance of reconnecting with their inner child and relishing the opportunity to compete on such a grand stage.

“It is important to connect with your own inner child. When we were little we played these games in the garden. So now we are here and that’s our chance to make it true,” he expressed during a press conference in Madrid.

Reflecting on the tactical intricacies of the game, Tuchel highlighted the defensive resilience required against Real Madrid’s formidable attack. He stressed the need for precision and determination, acknowledging the challenges posed by their opponents.

Despite Real Madrid’s formidable reputation in the Champions League, Tuchel instilled confidence in his team, asserting Bayern’s status as one of the world’s top clubs and their obligation to perform at their best.

“Bayern are also one of the most successful and dominant clubs in the world and we have an obligation to do our best when we step on the pitch tomorrow,” he affirmed.

The clash between the two European powerhouses promises to be a spectacle of football prowess, with both teams vying for a chance to etch their names in Champions League history. As Bayern aims to capitalize on their first semi-final appearance since their 2020 triumph, Real Madrid seeks to add another chapter to their storied Champions League legacy.

With tensions running high and the stakes at their peak, both teams prepare for an unforgettable showdown, fueled by the pursuit of footballing glory on the grandest stage of them all.
