Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid: Champions League semi-final preview

Real Madrid take on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final tie.

The match will see the two sides face each other for the 25th time in Europe – more than any other fixture – and the seventh time in a European Cup semi-final.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich were 3-0 winners at Hannover on Saturday, with Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski and Sebastian Rudy all scoring.

Jupp Heynckes’ side have not lost a match at home this season in all competitions, while Heynckes is the last Bayern Munich manager to have knocked Los Blancos out of a European competition – albeit that was 17 years ago.

Real, who have won the UCL in the past two successive seasons and three times in four years, progressed to the final four in dramatic fashion after a 4-3 aggregate victory over Juventus in the previous round.

Having lost the first leg 3-0 in Turin, Juventus looked to be taking the match to extra time before Cristiano Ronaldo scored a stoppage time penalty end the tie.

Real Madrid were held to a 1-1 home draw by Athletic Club on Wednesday. Cristiano Ronaldo equalised late on for Los Blancos, who are 3rd in La Liga – 15 points behind Barcelona.

Real Madrid knocked Bayern out at the quarter-final stage of last season’s competition with a 6-3 aggregate win. Zinedine Zidane’s side then went on to win the trophy for a second consecutive season.

Real Madrid have already beaten German opposition twice this season, with 3-1 and 3-2 wins over Borussia Dortmund in the group stage.
