Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale has said that his teammates should be wary of the threat posed by Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, who is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world right now. The Polish international missed the first leg between the two clubs in the Champions League quarter-finals due to suspension. He will return for the second leg, but it is almost of no use for the German outfit, as they are on the brink of being knocked out of the competition. They suffered a 3-0 defeat in the first leg.

This is almost ended any hopes of reaching the semifinals for the second consecutive season. Borussia Dortmund managed to beat Real Madrid in the semifinals last season and it was largely down to the exploits of Lewandowski, who scored all four goals for Dortmund in the tie. Ahead of the second leg, Gareth Bale, who became the worlda��s most expensive transfer at A? 86 million, says that Lewandowski still has the quality to impact on the tie, but he believes that Madrid have enough quality and advantage to be able to see out the threat.

Lewandowski has agreed a move to Bayern Munich in the summer and this could be his last European appearance for Dortmund.

a�?He is a great player and has been showing that over the last few years, but we have to concentrate on our own job, like we did in the first leg, defending well. You can’t do things any differently when you come up against other good attacking players. We have to defend well and I hope the team is at its best for this game. We are focussed on getting our revenge in the Champions League,a�? said Bale ahead of the second leg on Tuesday night. The first leg was at the Santiago Bernabeu.
