Lewandowski: Madrid are favourites

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski admits ‘Real Madrid are favourites’ for the Champions League semi-final tie.

The Polish striker, who has been linked with a summer move to the European champions, believes the German champions are capable of progressing through to the final.

“Real Madrid are favourites, but that does not mean they are going to beat us,” Lewandowski is cited as saying by Marca.

“When you are a team who have won the Champions League two seasons in a row then you must go into these games as the favourites but we will not focus on that.

“We are in good shape and our most recent results have been positive and now we can think about our game with Madrid.

“We have to be fully concentrated, totally focused, not make mistakes and make the most of their errors and take advantage of situations.

“Ronaldo is phenomenal, but Madrid are not just one player.”
