Bayern Munich      v        REAL MADRID

         
                           

The German champions, who trail 1-0, named the pair as substitutes in Saturday's 5-2 win over Werder Bremen.

Madrid will welcome back Wales forward Gareth Bale after illness.

Ballon d'Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo will start after a recent hamstring problem, while Karim Benzema (knee) and Pepe (hamstring) should return.

France striker Benzema, who scored the only goal of the first leg, and Portugal defender Pepe were both left on the bench during Saturday's 4-0 La Liga win against Osasuna.

Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti says the mental strength of his players, and not his tactical approach, is the key to defeating the holders at the Allianz Arena.

"At this stage in the competition the psychological aspect is more important than tactics," said the Italian.
"We have to be strong mentally in order to do our best to reach the final."
