Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich: Match preview

The Santiago Bernabeu awaits its next victim, as Real Madrid prepare themselves for their final hurdle. Even before anyone could care about the rival themselves, Los Blancos have already set their sights on an almost destined final. However, to reach that dream, Real Madrid must first overcome a cornered Bayern Munich.

In their previous outing, the Allianz Arena stood as a witness to a grueling encounter between Los Blancos and their Bavarian rivals. By the end of the game and as the final whistle blew, the spoils were shared as both teams ended the encounter with a 2-2 scoreline to show for themselves.

This time around, however, there are no second chances left for either team. Whoever wants to be left standing alongside the victor of PSG or Borussia Dortmund will need to ensure victory for themselves, and with the game set to take place underneath the lights of the Bernabeu gracing the field, Real Madrid will really fancy their chances.

Having already clinched another historic La Liga title, Carlo Ancelotti’s men are raring to go. With their domestic season already pretty much wrapped up, Los Blancos can now focus fully on their quest for a 15th UEFA Champions League title.

Over the course of their last five outings across all competitions, Real Madrid have three victories, and two draws, the first of which ended in a penalty-shootout victory for the Whites and the second being the stalemate against Bayern themselves.

Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern, on the other hand, will arrive at the Bernabeu knowing that the Champions League can serve as their only redemption this season. After losing the Bundesliga to Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen, the Bavarians would be extra determined to make things right on the continental stage.

In terms of form, Bayern have three victories, one draw, and one loss in their last five outings. Tuchel’s men have shown improved form in recent times, barring the loss to Stuttgart that arrived with a somewhat rotated squad, and will not be an opponent that Ancelotti will want to look past in terms of being a potential threat to Real Madrid.
