‘Madrid as good as Bayern’

Oliver Kahn believes Real Madrid would pose the biggest threat to Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals.

The holders and the nine-time winners are two of the four teams through to the penultimate stage, joined by Chelsea and Atletico Madrid.

Chelsea dispatched Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday while a day later, Atletico eliminated Barcelona.

AS reports Kahn as telling German television that whoever Bayern play will be a tough game but Madrid would be toughest of all.

“Chelsea are rough and [Jose] Mourinho is even worse. Atletico will be very hard too,” Kahn told ZDF.

“Personally, I would love a clash with Real Madrid. This is a team as good as Bayern, better than the other two.”
