Real Madrid coach Zidane scoffs at Bayern Munich 'complex' claims

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane refuses to accept any complacency going into the second-leg of their Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich.

Zidane wants his Real Madrid team to play the game of their lives when Bayern Munich come to town.

Some in Germany have discussed how Los Blancos are Bayern's bogey team, but such a notion was dismissed by the Real boss ahead of Tuesday's clash.

"They will come without complexes, I tell you," remarked Zidane after victory over Leganes.

"We are going to take part in a huge match.

"I ask my people to play like they have never done in their history, because we are going to need them to reach the final.

"I don't know if what happened to us against Juventus [in the quarter-final second leg] and Bayern last year helps us.

"We have to play a huge match. We have to be as good as ever to be able to qualify.

"We are prepared and have great determination. We will play our game of the year."
