Eight days on from their enticing 2-2 stalemate, Real Madrid hosts Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals, with a spot in the final on the line. A 28th meeting between these two will again have incredibly high stakes.

A 3-0 weekend win over Cádiz, coupled with Barcelona’s defeat at Girona, meant that Real their 36th LaLiga crown, and a second in three years. They clinched the league title with four games to spare, and can now fully focus on the Champions League tie with Bayern. Having not lost a home game all season, Real will feel confident in being able to make an 18th UCL final.

Participating in a whopping 33rd European Cup/Champions League semifinal, Real has reached this stage of the competition for the fourth year running and a 10th in the last 12 seasons. That highlights Los Blancos’ status as one of the most consistent teams in world football.

Their opponents have are no strangers to going deep in the Champions League either. This is Bayern’s 21st semifinal in the competition, despite failing to reach this stage in each of the last three seasons. The Bavarians are looking to win a two-legged UCL semifinal for the first time in 11 years.

Having already lost the Bundesliga title for the first time in 12 years, Bayern had the luxury of resting their key players in their weekend defeat to Stuttgart. A top four spot is already confirmed for Thomas Tuchel’s side, meaning they do not have that to worry about. Now it is a matter of trying to win a seventh Champions League trophy to avoid going trophyless for the first time in 12 seasons.

Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich Prediction

Bayern to win at 4.00, Bayern to advance at 2.75

Through 27 previous head-to-head meetings, there have been only four draws between Real and Bayern. That includes last week’s first leg. Although Real has the slight edge in H2H games (12 to 11), I think that we are in for something of a surprise on Wednesday.

As Bayern knows the Champions League is their last shot at a trophy this term, that puts a bit more pressure on them. Having failed to defend their Bundesliga title, that will likely motivate them to hand Real their first home loss of the season. While one can never count Real out in this competition, this will be a tough one for them.

Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich Tips

Over 2.5 goals at 1.57

We were treated to four goals a week ago, and it is unlikely we will see anything different in the Spanish capital on Wednesday. Given the attacking power both sides possess, expect to see at least three more goals in this fixture.
