Madrid Press: Karl-Heinz Rummenigge turns up the heat


With the return leg of the Champions League semi-final still five days away, and a league fixture to complete before that, you’d have thought there were other issues to cover in the press this morning.

But Bayern Munich president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has turned up the heat ahead of the clash at the Allianz Arena by saying Los Blancos will experience what hell is like. In comments picked up by Marca, Rummenigge told an audience that Munich awaits the nine-time European Cup winners.

He said: “I didn’t get the feeling the Real Madrid directors were happy with the result at home. They know what awaits in Munich. The match they played in Dortmund wasn’t good, and Bayern at home have the quality to make it feel like hell for the opposition.”

Meanwhile, AS has carried out a poll amongst its readers about whether they think the 1-0 lead will be enough to reach the final in Lisbon. And 53% responded positively, saying that although Madrid could have scored more, the lead in the first leg will be key in helping them progress. It does of course mean that a big proportion – 47% – thinks the lead is not enough. Whatever happens, there will probably be a few nerves shredded on Tuesday night.
