"We will play our game of the year".

Zidane wants his Real Madrid team to play the game of their lives when Bayern Munich come to town. Bale bundled Real into an early lead, before Borja Mayoral took advantage of more sloppy defending to make it two before half-time.

A free-kick from the left took the slightest of touches off a Leganes player and found an open Mayoral at the back post, with the striker slotting home at the back post. He played off to Gareth Bale, who played the ball in to Dani Ceballos. Leganes cut the deficit in half in the 66th minute.

With the crucial semi-final second leg against Bayern Munich just three days away though, Zinedine Zidane might ring in the changes to keep most of his first-choice players fresh.

Bale boosted his hopes of a start in the second leg by hooking in a deflected Benzema effort to give Real an eighth-minute lead with his first goal since a double against Las Palmas on March 31.

"We need them and I'll do everything possible so that they know that they're important and that they're not affected by whats said on the outside". "Going back to Tottenham - if he comes back [to the Premier League] he would only go to a top-six club, but it would be nice to see him go back to Spurs".

"This result will set us up nicely for the Bayern game, with the support of our fans, we will have to go flat out from kick-off to win the game", he added.

"I was angry with myself today, for some things, but not with the players", he told reporters at his post-match press conference.

In actual reality the man in black will often wait as long as possible on an attack before he has to blow the whistle, without keeping the game alive just for the sake of waiting and we all know most final whistles happen after a goal kick.
