Schweinsteiger aims to silence Real faithful
Bayern Munich's Bastian Schweinsteiger says the key to defeating Real Madrid in the Champions League is to silence the noisy home fans.
The Bundesliga outfit travel to the Spanish capital with a slender 2-1 lead from the first leg and the German international is expecting an early onslaught from Jose Mourinho's side which he feels they need to be wary of. And, while Schweinsteiger also feels a goal will be imperative, he feels that keeping the fans quiet will help them. "We expect them to come at us so we will have to work hard defensively," the 27-year-old said on Uefa.com. "The home supporters will be full of emotion and screaming their team on, which will play a part. If we're playing well in the first 20 minutes, though, they will calm down and that has to be our aim. I feel we must score; I think we will."
