I think that our squad is weaker than Real Madrids. To put a simple measure on it, they have had a better season than us.
You know that we are talking about the team that are seven points clear of 'the greatest team of all time' in the league and the team the beat 'the greatest team of all time' in their home stadium by actually playing actual football against them last week.
Bayern are a good side with the motivation of the home final spurring them on. I felt that they won the battle of the midfield last night and thus prevailed in the end. No doubt Madrid will try to lure Toni Kross with their magic white shirt next season.
