The UEFA Champions League semifinals are upon us, with Bayern Munich hosting Real Madrid in the first leg of the penultimate stage's standout fixture. These two European heavyweights will lock horns at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday in what promises to be an exciting 90 minutes of football.

Two weeks after witnessing Bayer Leverkusen officially win the 2023-24 Bundesliga title and end their 11-year dominance, Bayern Munich gear up to face Real Madrid in a match-up that could salvage the German giants' season.

With Tuchel's men surrendering the league crown to Leverkusen and crashing out of the DFB Pokal in the second round, Harry Kane and Co. are in grave danger of going trophyless this season. The UEFA Champions League remains their only route to silverware but standing in their way is the most successful team in this competition's history.

Fortunately, the hosts have picked up form at just the right time, with the home side going unbeaten in their last five games after suffering gutting back-to-back defeats against Dortmund in Der Klassiker and Heidenheim.

Furthermore, the Bavarians have won their last four outings in a row, including their crucial 1-0 victory over Arsenal at the Allianz Arena in the quarterfinals. That second-leg showdown with the Premier League winners saw Bayern Munich progress to the final and the Gunners crash out, with Kane and Co. triumphing 3-2 on aggregate following a 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium.

However, die Roten will face a familiar foe in Real Madrid. The German side have faced the Spanish giants three times in the knockout stage since 2014 and have been eliminated on all three occasions, which means they will be out for revenge this time around.

Real Madrid, unlike their rivals, are in pursuit of the double and could wrap up this season by lifting more than one major trophy. While the Spanish top-flight title race is not mathematically over, Ancelotti's side boast a double-digit lead at the top with only five matches remaining, which means the title is all but theirs.

Los Blancos' Supercopa de Espana victory over bitter rivals Barcelona back in January should not be forgotten but for now, the focus is solely on the UEFA Champions League. Vinicius Junior and Co. have the golden opportunity to win this competition for the sixth time in the last decade but must first overcome a stern semifinal opponent.

Real Madrid's pathway to the penultimate round has been interesting, with the Spanish giants winning every single fixture in the group stage despite being grouped with last season's Serie A champions Napoli. However, things have been tricky in the knockout stage, with Ancelotti's men beating RB Leipzig in the round of 16 by the skin of their teeth.

The quarterfinals were even more grueling, with the Merengues facing the reigning champions of Europe Manchester City. Real Madrid had to fight back from a goal down twice in the home tie to draw 3-3 and were held to a 1-1 stalemate at the Etihad Stadium, thus forcing extra time and penalties. Fortunately for the Spanish heavyweights, they emerged victorious through spot kicks.

Interestingly enough, Real Madrid have faced Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals four times since the turn of the century. However, while the Spanish side dominated the recent encounters, this head-to-head record remains equal, proving that Bayern Munich will be a tough hurdle to overcome irrespective of their frustrating Bundesliga campaign.

Team news

Bayern Munich: Alphonso Davies, who was suspended for the second leg against Arsenal, is back in contention and should start against the club he has heavily been linked with. Konrad Laimer and Matthijs de Ligt, however, are doubts. On a positive not, Jamal Musiala and Serge Gnabry have recovered in time for this tie while Leroy Sane could also feature. Sadly, there will be no Kingsley Coman or Sacha Boey.

Real Madrid: Jude Bellingham and Rodrygo did not feature in the recent win over Real Sociedad due to illness but the Englishman and Brazilian are fine for this fixture. Furthermore, Ferland Mendy should also be in contention, meaning Thibaut Courtois and David Alaba are Los Blancos' only absentees.
