Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels has devised a special plan to deal with Cristiano Ronaldo this evening.
The Bundesliga giants host Los Blancos at the Allianz Arena in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.
Both sides are bidding to put themselves in the driving seat ahead of next week’s return leg in the Spanish capital after seeing Liverpool put one foot in the final on Tuesday night.
The Reds beat Roma 5-2 at Anfield, but did hold a 5-0 lead before leaving the door slightly ajar for their opponents.
Hummels knows Ronaldo, who he claims is ‘the best striker in the world’ will be Real’s main threat, but he claims he has a ploy to stop him.
He told Bild: "I watch many games of the big teams and take a general interest in international soccer. You notice a few things there.
"With Ronaldo, I think I’ve identified a few patterns; there are certain striking things. I will try to utilise this knowledge to my advantage. But I won’t disclose it publicly.
"In recent years Ronaldo has changed his playing style. He is not as dominant as he was in earlier days, but rather utterly focused on finishing and goals.
"In this regard, he is the best striker in the world because he can score in any way, any second of the game."
