Mourinho: We'll be back for final

Jose Mourinho is confident Real Madrid will be back in Munich for the Champions League final in May after his side were beaten 2-1 by Bayern in their semi-final first leg.

• Bayern Munich 2-1 Real Madrid

A late goal from Mario Gomez at the Allianz Arena consigned Real to their first defeat in the competition this season, after Mesut Ozil had cancelled out Franck Ribery's opener.

However, Mourinho was satisfied with the performance of his side, who face rivals Barcelona in El Clasico on Saturday.

"We don't need any crazy result in the return leg - we can win with a normal result and go through,'' he said at the post-match press conference. "I think my team can respond to this game, with our fans behind us.''

Ozil, who brought Real level early in the second half, shares his coach's optimism that the tie is still wide open. "I think that we will win the return leg,'' he said. "We are a touch stronger at home.

"We believe in our strength and I am convinced that we will go through. We will be coming back to Munich again.''

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes says his side did exactly what he had asked of them. Heynckes wanted to see a reaction from his side after they effectively lost the Bundesliga title in their last two games, and he believes he got it as Bayern ensured a slender advantage to take to Spain.

"My players showed what I had demanded from them yesterday: lust and hunger for success,'' he told Sky television. "I think we more than deserved the win because we played cleverly and intelligently.''

The result was disappointing for Real, but Mourinho did not want to dwell on Bayern's first goal, which could have been ruled out for offside as Luiz Gustavo, clearly ahead of the last defender, appeared to obscure Iker Casillas' view of Ribery's powerful shot.

"I don't want to criticise the referee,'' he said. "I will just accept his decision, even if it (the goal) should have been ruled out.''

Heynckes also admitted that "similar goals have been ruled out in the past'', while chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: "It was an emotional game and Real showed that they are a great side. Fortunately, we had luck on our side in the end.''
