Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Real Madrid are chasing their third consecutive Champions League title, but will have to go past the German giants Bayern in the semi-final. The first leg of the semi-final Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid will be played at the Allianz Arena in Munich on Wednesday, April 25, so check out our Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid prediction and betting tips.
Bayern have defeated surprise entrants Sevilla in the quarter-final with a 2-1 win away from home and a 0-0 home draw earning them the ticket. The German Champions have since won all three of their competitive matches, hammering 14 goals in those games, ahead of this Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid encounter. Their home record is excellent and the Bavarians haven’t lost a home game in any competition since April last year. This season, they have won 19 of their 22 games at home and even have clean sheets in five of the last six home games. The hosts will be keen to get some leverage into the second round at the Santiago Bernabeu to propel their chances of moving to the final, for the first time since 2013.
It won’t be easy because up against them are the two-time defending Champions and have made a mockery of their domestic troubles to come this far. They had a very controversial entry to the semi-final after needing a very late penalty to defeat Juventus. All that is history now and the visitors will hope that their Portuguese talisman Cristiano Ronaldo will help win this Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid encounter. He now has 120 goals in the competition, 15 of which have come this season itself in only ten games. With a goal every 60 minutes on the pitch, Ronaldo is definitely the best bet for Madrid to win this game. However, they have the penchant of leaking goals as was evident in the previous game against Juventus. Will that hurt Madrid before the action moves to their home turf?
