Bayern Munich coach Heynckes confident facing Real Madrid: No favourite

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes says he has a "good feeling" facing Champions League opponents Real Madrid.

While he did point to Los Blancos' two recent successes, he said that he felt this tie was evenly matched.

"It's a semi-final featuring two teams with a great history in the Champions League," he said at his pre-match press conference.

"There isn't a favourite.

"It's true that Real Madrid have won the past two tournaments and have an advantage in that respect, but we are in great form.

"We've had success in the Bundesliga, we have reached a Copa del Rey final and we want to top it all off with a Champions League final.

"For me, there is no favourite, but I have a good feeling."
