Franck Ribery urges his Bayern Munich teammates not to believe that they have already reached the Champions League final.

Franck Ribery has warned his Bayern Munich teammates that they have not reached the final of the Champions League yet.

The German side head into next week's semi-final away at Real Madrid with a 2-1 advantage over their Spanish opponents.

However, Ribery is expecting Madrid to provide his side with a "very, very tough" encounter at the Bernabeu.

"I think it was very important for our confidence to win the home game against Madrid," Ribery told UEFA's official website.

"It was a lot of fun tonight, especially with the crowd behind us, but we're only halfway there. The game in Madrid is going to be very, very tough.

"I don't think their goal will change much with regard to our tactics in the second leg. We'll stay compact, just like we did tonight. Madrid will need to attack us and that should give us the opportunity to counter."

Ribery opened the scoring for the Bavarians during last night's win.
