Robert Lewandowski criticism 'ridiculous' - Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

Marcelo had an eventful game in Munich, offering attacking thrust but looking vulnerable defensively and his battle with Thomas Muller might be crucial, with the German potentially causing him problems in the air.

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has branded criticism of Robert Lewandowski's recent performances as "ridiculous" and is adamant he will still be at the club next season.

Bayern have injury worries of their own. Jupp Heynckes can still call upon a decent starting XI, but Bayern look weak at the back without Alaba and Boateng. Niklas Sule replaced him and is expected to do so again on Tuesday.

"Barca have done the double and that's a good year for them", he said.

When Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich played the ball down the right flank, James released Kimmich with a perfectly-timed pass in the 28th minute.

He also bench pressed 225 pounds (100 kilograms) 20 times , using a prosthetic hand to complete the exercise. Griffin finished his previous year at UCF with 74 combined tackles, 7.0 sacks, and one interception.

Bayern's Dutch winger Arjen Robben, who also came off injured in their defeat by the Spaniards, is still doubtful for the second leg while David Alaba and Javi Martinez will be fit.

Franz Beckenbauer, like Kahn part of the large chorus of former Bayern captains who cast stern verdicts from a media podium, wonders if "our players have a sort of complex when they play Real Madrid". In the quarter-finals, Madrid were beaten 3-1 on the night by Juventus, with a late Cristiano Ronaldo penalty securing their place against Bayern in the semi-finals.

"The mood within the team is very, very good", the Austrian told the club's official website. Los Blancos kick off with a 2-1 lead after the first leg in Germany and most commentators expect progression for Zidane's side, despite Bayern putting up a decent show. Asensio's victor was the biggest piece of quality in the game, but it came from a loose pass by Brazilian fullback Rafinha; Kimmich's strike took some skill and confidence to execute, but it wouldn't have gone in if Keylor Navas had positioned himself correctly in the Real Madrid goal.

That doesn't mean the tie is done and dusted. But they're separated by 36 years of managerial experience and contrasting ideology and method. But Heynckes, who won one of his two Champions League titles with the Spanish giants in 1998, sounded as if he'd been paying attention to visiting coaches to the Allianz Arena, as he praised his old employers.
