We are quite similar to Real. Two teams that play the small percentage game. I believe Real will win if we play the way we usually do. Which is why I’m pleased to hear Pulisic and TT say that we need to play with courage and be aggressive. We can’t go toe to toe with this experienced outfit playing it safe. We have to go for the throat and play high risk football. Real want to slow things down and let their midfield dictate. Can’t let them control tempo. Mount will be key in trying to move Casemiro and expose that soft under belly.

I hope, should Eden feature he’s just as effective as he wasn’t when he faced his former club when with us - barely knew he was on the pitch. 
 

Also isn’t there a bit of bad blood between Benzema and Giroud over some disparaging comments made by the former against the latter.

You mean the  Benzema banned from playing for France ?

I think the bad blood goes back to this because of this   https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/555723

He’s a bit of form, has Karim hasn’t he!

Game Day! Champions League semi-final day, against Real Madrid! What a game!! I'm so excited about this game and I really do believe we have a chance to progress to the final, which I did not think I'd be saying a few months ago. It's going to be tight, tense and nervy, but this is the kind of night we've missed, we haven't played this far into the competition for too long and we're doing it with some of our own out there too! I'm so excited to see Mount, James and maybe CHO, go up against one of the very biggest clubs in Europe and unlike last year vs Bayern, I feel that this time, they can go toe to toe with them. Come on boys!!!!!

Some reports coming from Spain that Zidane will match up with us formation wise and play three at the back.

If you can keep your head when all about you   
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,   
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;   
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
 
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;   
    If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;   
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;   
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
    Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
    And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
 
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
    To serve your turn long after they are gone,   
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
    Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
 
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,   
    Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,   
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,   
    And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
