‘No Bayern mental block’ insists Zidane

Zinedine Zidane has rejected suggestions that Bayern Munich have a ‘mental block’ when playing against Real Madrid.

Former Bayern defender Bixente Lizarazu told an interview with El Pais that the German giants, who have lost six games in a row against Los Blancos, had a psychological issue against Madrid.

“The record will not concern Bayern,” Zidane told his pre-match press conference.

“They are a big club with a great team and like always they will try to play a great game and impose themselves on proceedings.

“We must be fully prepared and ready for this game and to be in a position to play a strong match ourselves and we are fully aware of our potential.

“They will have no mental block and their only thoughts will be on playing a great game.”
