UEFA Champions League: Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich preview


Real Madrid will be looking to hold on to their advantage when they host Bayern Munich at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium on Tuesday in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-finals tie. The Blancos pulled off a 2-1 victory in the first leg last week, Joshua Kimmich had put the Bavarians ahead in the first half but Marcelo and Marco Asensio scored to turn things around for Real. These two sides met in the quarter-finals of the competition last season and the first leg produced an identical result: 2-1 victory for Real in Munich. Then Bayern replied with a 2-1 victory in Madrid, but Real fought back in extra-time and eventually won 4-2.

Real Madrid should be fully aware of the danger that Bayern Munich could become in the second leg, especially given what has happened in last season's clash. Last weekend the Blancos grabbed a 2-1 LaLiga victory over Leganes in a match that saw head coach Zinedine Zidane rest almost the entire squad. They are probably still hoping to leapfrog Atletico Madrid into second place in the league table, but that is far less important than reaching the Champions League final. Isco and Daniel Carvajal have picked up injuries in the first leg and they are out of contention for Tuesday's match, but Nacho and Raphael Varane could recover.

Bayern Munich bounced back to winning ways last weekend as they hammered Eintracht Frankfurt 4-1 in the Bundesliga, even though the title had been secured long ago. Head coach Jupp Heynckes did rest most of his first-team regulars at the weekend but he still has various injury problems to deal with. Jerome Boateng and Arjen Robben got injured during the first leg and they will most likely be out of contention for the second, while Kingsley Coman, Manuel Neuer and Arturo Vidal are also injured.

Probable line-ups:

Real: Navas - Vazquez, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo - Modric, Casemiro, Kroos - Asensio - Bale, Ronaldo

Bayern: Ulreich - Kimmich, Sule, Hummels, Rafinha - Alcantara, Martinez, Rodriguez - Muller, Lewandowski, Ribery

My prediction: Real Madrid to win 3-2.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Real win - 2.14
Draw - 4.00
Bayern win - 3.20
