Boss Thomas Tuchel says his players must believe in themselves if they are to beat Real Madrid in the Champions League.
“We felt we can be stronger. The challenge is to keep the intensity going through the whole match,” he said.
“It is a semi-final, the pressure is on, a knockout game so to arrive with a level of belief and confidence is necessary or we will have no chance against a team like Real Madrid.
“I never felt we had a holy grail to reach the final, or winning the Champions League is the only target. I have a strong feeling that every win counts, the club demands it that we win any game, no matter who is on the other side of the pitch.”
