Thomas Tuchel's side also bowed out of the quarter-finals after losing 3-1 to Monaco in Wednesday's return leg, but are battling for an automatic place in next season's Champions League.

Madrid defeated city rival Atletico Madrid in the final both in 2014 and 2016.

Hummels, Robert Lewandowski and Jerome Boateng were all carrying knocks in Madrid and coach Carlo Ancelotti is expected to rotate before facing Dortmund.

A draw on Friday will determine whether there will be another matchup between the Madrid clubs right away in the semifinals or if there will be another possibility for a derby in the final in Cardiff.

"I don't think Real Madrid have any influence on referees". "We want to win it again this year".

"It's a special competition for Real Madrid", Ronaldo said. His involvement in the game was limited in terms of impact and physical strength but, in spite of that, he knows he has admirers at the Bernabéu who will attempt, if it is at all possible, to get him to Madrid in the near future. He had scored twice in the first leg against Bayern in Munich.

"The team was literally in ruins in the changing room", Rummenigge continued, quoted by Reuters.

"We played against the best team by the way, but we scored six goals and they scored three, so we deserved to go through", Zidane said. We deserved much more.

"We had a lot of chances in the first half and then we were not comfortable".

Their joint retirements signal the end of an era at Bayern, with time also running out for veteran wingers Franck Ribery, 34, and Arjen Robben, 33, who both have contracts until June 2018.

Just one more win will guarantee Hoffenheim European football next season having narrowly avoided relegation last term.

However, the Portugal star's two goals in extra time were offside, after Arturo Vidal was harshly sent off for Bayern late in regulation.
