“We're excited, we have no doubts about what we can do and against Bayern we have to take that confidence to the pitch”, stated the Whites player.
Just before Carlo Ancelotti's appearance, Gareth Bale spoke to the press in the Allianz Arena, where Real Madrid will square off against Bayern Munich on Tuesday. The Whites' midfielder spoke about the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals: “It's going to be a tricky match against Bayern. I don't feel like we're through. It'll be a great battle, a tough and complicated match. The result will be tight with little difference between the teams. We hope to do our job well, but it will be a fantastic match and we're 100% ready to give our all”.

“We're excited, we have no doubts about what we can do and against Bayern we have to take that confidence to the pitch. We're going to try and play good football. We're not a team that sits back. We know it'll be difficult but we are hopeful. Between us we're going to give it a good go tomorrow”.

His recovery
“I feel fine. After a couple of training sessions I've recovered and I hope to be able to play tomorrow. We're happy with the situation we're in. We have to focus on the matches we have left and try and beat them. When you get to the club you realise what the expectations are. We want to win everything we play in and we're going to try and win the Champions League”.

“We're going to give our all to reach the final”

“I prefer attacking, but Bayern are very good and tomorrow we have to be able to defend. We all want to play these big matches and we want to pick up titles”.

Cristiano Ronaldo as a teammate
“He's sensational. He is the reason I came. I want to be with the best. We have a laugh, we talk a lot and we get on well on the pitch”.

His battle with Alaba
“He's a fantastic player and he's showed it many times. It will be a tough battle tomorrow”.

The most important goal in his career
“The one I scored in the cup was a really amazing goal. I remember some situations. We all gave our all and in the end we took the title. I'm happy to share those moments with the team”.
