Mesut Ozil is in no doubt that Real Madrid will reach the Champions League final, despite being 2-1 down to Bayern Munich after the first leg of the semi-final.

Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil is confident that his side will overcome their first-leg deficit to Bayern Munich in order to claim a spot in the Champions League final.

A late strike courtesy of Mario Gomez clinched a 2-1 victory for the German side, but Real still have an away goal advantage due to Ozil's equaliser in the second half.

"The 2-1 scoreline is bitter for us to take but I am convinced that we will win at home," Ozil told the club's official website.

"We believe in our strength and I am convinced that we will progress to the final. I'm a little sad in defeat, but I have a good feeling. We will be in Munich."

Jose Mourinho's side must take on arch rivals Barcelona in El Clasico this weekend before their crucial semi-final return leg against Bayern next week.
