Bayern Munich forward Serge Gnabry has said that the Bavarians will have to take advantage of the scoring opportunities against Real Madrid as this is the only way to kill Los Blancos.

“We have to take advantage of the scoring chances we create and then kill them,” said the forward as quoted by SPORT.

“We played a very good game in the first leg, we had many scoring chances and we could have scored one or two more goals. 

That is a very, very important point for Wednesday,” he added.

Bayern Munich are optimistic

Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern Munich are determined to make up for a disappointing domestic season by reaching the Champions League final. 

This season saw Bayern lose the Bundesliga title for the first time since 2012, which adds pressure to their performance in the European competition.

Meanwhile, Tuchel has faced challenges with his squad, including concerns about the health of several key players like Dayot Upamecano, Jamal Musiala, Konrad Laimer, Matthijs de Ligt, and Leroy Sane for this clash.

On the other hand, Raphael Guerreiro’s absence from the team further complicates the situation.

Despite these obstacles, Tuchel remains confident about his team’s ability to qualify for the Champions League final. 

His focus is now on getting the best performance out of his players to keep their Champions League hopes alive. The team is motivated and ready to fight for their spot in the final.

Amid all this, Tuchel pointed out that Gnabry, who scored in Bayern Munich’s 2-2 draw against Arsenal, will be on the scoresheet against Real Madrid too.

“Serge Gnabry is going to score,” he said. 

“It’s going to happen. I don’t know where it’s come from, but it’s going to happen

“I’m putting my headphones on noise-cancelling and ignoring it. The topic won’t help me tomorrow or on Tuesday – and it’s not my topic anyway,” he added.

Speaking in an interview with Sport BILD (h/t AS), Germany legend Michael Ballack has claimed that Bayer Leverkusen sensation Florian Wirtz is ready to play for Real Madrid.

Wirtz is a player that Real Madrid have been closely monitoring for a while now, with the German sensation being seen as a long-term replacement for Toni Kroos, who announced his retirement yesterday.

A move for Wirtz is being planned for the summer of 2025 and Ballack believes that the Bundesliga title winner with Leverkusen is ready for the big move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

“Wirtz is ready for Real Madrid,” said Ballack.

“In terms of football, Wirtz can definitely play for Real Madrid. You can also see it in Jude Bellingham after his move from BVB: when you play with even better players, you become even better,” he added.

Wirtz has a contract with Bayer Leverkusen that runs until the summer of 2027. As things stand, the new German champions have no intentions of selling their prized asset this year.

However, there appears to be an acceptance that the German international will be on the move in 2025.

Other top clubs like Manchester City and Bayern Munich are also understood to be interested, but Real Madrid are likely to beat them in the race should it come down to that next year.

A move for Wirtz, though, could cost in excess of €100 million for Real Madrid should they do indeed decide to proceed with his signing next year.
