Champions League: Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich Betting Preview

In the first match of semi-finals Real Madrid will host Bayern Munich are Santiago Bernabéu.


Real Madrid play very good this season. They have already won one trophy this season after they beat Barcelona in the final of Copa del Rey 1-2. They still have a chance to win the title in Primera and in Champions League.

Their best player and top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo (27/28 f) missed the last four matches with a hamstring injury and he’s doubtful for today’s match. Gareth Bale (25/14 m) has recovered from the flu and he should be in the first eleven. Arbeloa (16/0 d), Khedira (11/1 m) and Jesé (18/5 f) are all out due to injury.

On the other side, Bayern München have already won the title in Bundesliga, so they had time to rest some players for the clash against Real. They also have some problems with injuries.

Badstuber (0/0 d), Van Buyten (11/1 d), Contento (9/0 d), Alcántara (16/2 m) and Shaqiri (17/6 m) are all out.

Their first goalkeeper Manuel Neuer missed the last match with a calf injury, but he will be probably fit.

Possible lineups:

Real Madrid: Casillas; Carvajal, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrao; Alonso, Modric; Di Maria, Bale, Ronaldo; Benzema

Bayern Munich: Neuer; Lahm, Dante, Boateng, Alaba; Martinez, Schweinsteiger; Kroos, Robben, Ribery; Mandzukic

Both teams are playing very offensive, so expect at least three goals on this match.
