Madrid never give up: Zidane

Gareth Bale

Roma may have fallen just short but it was not for lack of trying by Dzeko, who scored seven minutes after the break to give the Italians fresh hope and was their best player overall in the two legs against Liverpool.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has given Liverpool a big morale boost ahead of the Champions League final in Kiev on May 26 after the Frenchman made it clear he won't rest any of his players ahead of the final showdown with the Jurgen Klopp's men.

In April, Ronaldo agreed, "As long as I'm with Real Madrid, you [Benzema] will have your place secured".

Zidane said it was his job to "defend" Benzema, just as he does with all of his players.

The Bundesliga champions also had a penalty appeal waved away when their Polish striker Robert Lewandowski went down under a challenge from Real captain Sergio Ramos. It's not usual to be in a final for the third time in a row. I think pretty much 80 percent of the team played all these finals - four times in the last five years - and they are still together.

"It's a awful thing for a player to live through", said Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes.

"It's important to believe in ourselves and we know we can score at any given moment".

"You can not be in the final without suffering, it's even better, more attractive when you win like that".

When Joshua Kimmich gave Bayern an early lead and James Rodriguez levelled with 27 minutes remaining, Real looked in danger of surrendering their 2-1 advantage from the first leg.

The 29-year-old, who has stood in as the Bavarians' first-choice custodian this term due to Manuel Neuer's injury, somehow missed a backpass from Corentin Tolisso, leaving Benzema to tap into an empty net. "We really wanted to reach the final, we did our best and then this unnecessary mistake happened to me". I imagined you'd ask me that. Benzema's two goals here were another feather in the cap for coach Zinedine Zidane, who had chose to start the French striker, despite only one goal in his previous 12 games.

Another player who redeemed himself on Tuesday was goalkeeper Keylor Navas, who had been criticized by some Madrid fans after his mistake in the second leg of the quarterfinals against Juventus almost cost his team the spot in the semis.
