Bayern chief urges one last push
Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes says he can feel the desire in his squad to qualify the Champions League final on home turf.
Bayern host Real Madrid in Tuesday's semi-final first leg clash with the Bundesliga side aiming to secure a decent advantage as they bid to contest the final at their very own Allianz Arena against either Barcelona or Chelsea next month. Heynckes believes it is a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to play a Champions League final at their own stadium and wants his players to grasp it firmly. "It is certainly a very special motivation that the final takes place in the Allianz Arena," he said at the pre-match press conference. "This is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity." "Of course it is important for us to be successful. We still have chances in the Champions League and in the DFB-Pokal, and when you have a tie like this, the desire to win titles is decisive." He added: "I can feel that within the team. We have already shown in the Champions League this year what we are capable of."
