Real Madrid will need to "suffer" if they are to overcome Bayern Munich and go on to lift the UEFA Champions League trophy, according to Los Blancos director Emilio Butragueno.

Malaga are 14 points adrift of safety but Zidane remains wary of the threat posed by Jose Gonzalez's men, especially after Real's efforts in their dramatic Champions League quarter-final triumph over Juventus.

'Everyone can have their opinion, and I won't respond to what the players are saying, but all I'll say is that no-one (in the media) can talk to me about a robbery. "When people talk about a robbery you realise that we are annoying a lot of people with what we are doing", said the Frenchman. We did very well and we're in the semi-finals.' Real are fourth in the Liga standings and could be 18 points behind runaway leaders Barcelona by the time they play against Malaga.

I don't think about that.
