Makaay backs Bayern upset

25 April 2012 14:06

Roy Makaay believes that Bayern Munich have a good chance to reach the Champions League final at the expense of Real Madrid.

The Bavarians recorded a 2-1 home win in the first leg of the semi-final tie last week, and the former Netherlands international feels Jupp Heynckes' men have what it takes to cause Real plenty of problems in Wednesday's return at the Santiago Bernabeu.

"I am convinced that Bayern will score at least one goal. So if Real Madrid want to go through, they need to find the net twice or more," Makaay told Algemeen Dagblad.

"Bayern deservedly won the first leg. Real Madrid didn't impress in defence. (Alvaro) Arbeloa was outplayed by (Franck) Ribery last week.

"But if they offer Arbeloa more support this time, Arjen Robben will get a lot more space, and you don't want that either.

"It's nice that Bayern can reach the final in their own Allianz Arena. The whole club is excited about it."

It took Makaay 10 seconds to score the fastest goal in the history of the Champions League when playing for Bayern Munich against Real Madrid in season 2006/07.
