Dani Carvajal says that Real Madrid are 'wary' of Bayern Munich's attacking trio of Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and Franck Ribery ahead of Wednesday's clash.

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal has admitted that his team are 'wary' of Bayern Munich's attacking trio of Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski and Franck Ribery ahead of Wednesday's clash in the Champions League.

Los Blancos will take on Bayern at the Allianz Arena in the first leg of their European Cup semi-final on Wednesday night.

Carvajal has said that "it would be amazing" to win a third straight Champions League title, but the Spaniard is under no illusions when it comes to the size of the task awaiting his team in the semi-finals of the competition.

"The trio of Robben, Lewandowski and Ribery are the best and they will be the most difficult to defend against," Marca quotes Carvajal as saying. "From a defensive point of view they are all highly dangerous in terms of marking and knowing that they can create room and score from any position.

"But we must stay focused on our own plans and objectives, it would be amazing to win a third consecutive [Champions League] title. We go into this game with a lot of motivation and enthusiasm."

Madrid recorded a 4-3 aggregate success over Juventus in the quarter-finals of this season's tournament.
