Match Preview:

Real Madrid will aim to progress to the final of the UEFA Champions League by finishing the job against Bayern Munich at the Bernabeu. Los Blancos secured a 2-1 away win at the Allianz Arena last week to put a foot in the final scheduled for May 26 at Kiev.

Tuesday’s clash will see James Rodriguez return to the Santiago Bernabeu for the first time since he left to join Bayern Munich. The 26-year-old forward joined the German champions in a two-year loan deal with speculations suggesting that he will make his move permanent in the near future.

James was instrumental for Die Roten in the first leg although they fell to a disappointing defeat at the Allianz Arena. He is, however, expected to turn-up again at his old stomping grounds to fire the Bavarians to the final for the first time since 2013. 

A win against his parent club and, subsequently the final, would make the Colombian just the fifth player after Marcel Desailly, Paulo Sousa, Gerard Pique and Samuel Eto'o to have won the European trophy with two different clubs in consecutive years.

Regarding the impending clash, both Real Madrid and Bayern Munich face selection dilemmas with injuries ruling out certain key players. The hosts will be without the service of Dani Carvajal and his compatriot Isco who picked up a shoulder injury in the first-leg. 

Similarly, Arjen Robben and Jerome Boateng who sustained respective injuries at the Allianz Arena will not be in action. Arturo Vidal still remains out of action after injuring himself before the first leg encounter. However, Javi Martinez and David Alaba have travelled with the squad to the capital of Spain after recovering from respective injuries in time.

Per the record books, there have been 24 previous meetings between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. The former has won 12 out of such encounters while Bayern have also won 11 times with only two of the matches ending in a draw.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo will be the man under the microscope with his 15 goals in the competition so far. His goal tally is 10 more than Lewandowski although the Bayern Munich forward's is tied with him on 38 goals in all competitions.
