Bayern Munich will be tasked with preventing the Champions League top-scorer from adding to that tally on Wednesday in the Allianz Arena and the home side have plenty of cause for concern when Ronaldo rocks up in Bavaria - they are one of his favourite victims in European competition.

Forming a strong partnership alongside Luka Modric in midfield, Bayern's loss has been Real's gain, as Kroos has clinched two European triumphs since, as well as the Spanish title a year ago.

Ronaldo has an impressive record against Bayern having scored nine goals in his six games against the German club.

"We'll be ready. They can also be vulnerable and we can go into the game with our heads high".

The Portugal superstar has scored 15 goals in the Champions League this season, hitting the net in each of Real's 10 games in Europe.

His only success was a 2-1 win in Munich in the 2012 semi-finals when Bayern later progressed by winning a penalty shoot-out in Madrid after losing 2-1 in the second-leg.

"I don't care who scores the goal".

Just as he did in 2013, the 72-year-old could bow out with the treble.

"We are in good shape, it will definitely be a great fight", said Bayern president Uli Hoeness.

Bayern have already secured a sixth straight Bundesliga title and are into the German Cup final on May 19.
