Teams: Real Madrid v Bayern Munich
Date: 01 May 2018
Venue: Santiago Bernabeu
Real Madrid will be eyeing a third straight appearance in the UEFA Champions League final when they host Bayern Munich in the second leg of their semi-final tie.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h45.
Bayern will need a strong performance to overturn the 2-1 deficit in front of a strong and boisterous home crowd.
Los Blancos have been able to hold their own against potent outfits like PSG and Juventus recently, and is perhaps an indication on their path to an unprecedented third straight title.
After resting a few star players in their slim win over Leganes, Zinedine Zidane is set to recall Cristiano Ronaldo and Luka Modric, although Isco misses out through injury.
Anything less than a victory tonight will see the Bundesliga champions firmly extinguished from this season’s Champions League.
Jupp Heynckes will be without Arjen Robben, Arturo Vidal and Kingsley Coman who are on the sidelines through injury.
The Bavarians warmed up for the clash with a 4-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt over the weekend.
Here's how they line up:
Real Madrid: Navas, Marcelo, Ramos, Varane, Kovacic, Modric, Kroos, Vazquez, Asensio, Ronaldo, Benzema.
Bayern Munich: Ulreich, Kimmich, Hummels, Sule, Alaba, Thiago, Tolisso, James, Muller, Ribery, Lewandowski.
