Real Madrid's Dani Carvajal targeting third straight Champions League trophy

Dani Carvajal is confident Real Madrid can make history and become the first team to win the Champions League three years in succession.

The Spanish giants became the first side to retain the European title in the Champions League era last season and are now aiming to go one better.

Zinedine Zidane's side face Bayern Munich in the first leg of their semifinal at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

"Nothing is impossible, we're going to fight for it," Carvajal told the club's website.

"We're working hard and, if we've done it twice, why wouldn't we go for that third consecutive Champions League?

"Since I've been here, I've been lucky that I've been able to reach the semifinal every year. Every year has something special and this season more so, due the teams we've come up against. We're happy and looking forward to playing the game."

Real Madrid's record extends to three triumphs in the past four seasons and 12 European titles overall.

Last year's success came after victory over Bayern in the semi-finals.

Midfielder Dani Ceballos was not a member of the side then but is hoping history can repeat itself.

"This team is used to these matches in the semifinal of the Champions League," he said.

"We've also played games against Bayern Munich at this level and we've come out on top. We hope that these semifinals are like previous years and we can make it to the final."
