Scans on Wednesday evening revealed Neuer, 31, suffered a break to a metatarsal in his left foot in the second leg of Bayern's Champions League quarterfinal defeat to Real Madrid. He makes the difference.

"We were in great shape mentally after we went 2-1 up and still had 11 players on the pitch". We've seen Ryan Giggs go from a flying winger to someone who played more centrally as a midfielder.

Zidane though played down his side's controversial win saying it was deserved.

After a goalless but absorbing first half, Bayern took the lead from the spot through Lewandowski's nonchalant penalty after Casemiro, who had a compelling case to be dismissed for a second booking, caught Robben.

In the Spanish league, Ronaldo's 19 goals leave him five behind Suarez and 10 behind Messi.

It is not the first time the Bernabeu natives have booed Ronaldo and he grew increasingly desperate to find the net with a series of wild efforts, including at one point ignoring strike partner Karim Benzema to go for goal himself, infuriating the home crowd.

Bayern coach Carlo Ancelotti had expressed his frustration after the game, telling Mediaset: "He [Kassai] made a lot of mistakes and probably he was not good enough".

And Asensio sealed victory in sensational style with a stunning solo run and low right-footed finish as many Bayern players sank to their knees knowing Champions League glory had passed them by for another year. The Portuguese superstar scored his 100th goal in the competition as Real reached the last four following a thrilling encounter at the Bernabeu.

"After 90 minutes, we won 2-1 in Madrid and I have to pay a massive compliment to the team for their performance over the 120 minutes", he added. "Those numbers. Those scandalous numbers you think you can never achieve, the appearances, the goals, and that to me is where it's going", Neville told Sky Sports when discussing Ronaldo's achievements.

Bayern pushed hard for a second goal which would have put them into the last four stage, but Ronaldo leveled the score on the night with 15 minutes remaining following a Casemiro cross.
