UEFA Champions League

Starting XI: Bayern vs Real

Bayern Munich will be keen to end their recent hoodoo against Spanish sides when they take on Real Madrid tonight – here is how both teams will line up.

UEFA Champions League

Teams: Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid

Date: 12 April 2017

Venue: Allianz Arena

Time: 8:45pm

Bayern Munich versus Real Madrid is the most played fixture in European club competition, with the current tie being their 11th clash in the European Cup knockout stages.

Both sides have progressed five times apiece, but Real claimed victory in the latest tie, when current Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti was at the helm of the Santiago Bernabeu club, beating the Germans 5-0 on aggregate.

The Bavarians have been eliminated from the UEFA Champions League by Spanish opposition in the past three consecutive seasons, and will surely want to end this hoodoo.

Bayern have won their past 16 successive home games in European competition, while Real are still unbeaten in this year's Champions League.

Los Blancos are currently on a run of scoring at least once in their past 52 games – a new Spanish record – but will have to be at their best to keep this run going in Munich.

While Bayern will miss Mats Hummels and hope Robert Lewandowski and Manuel Neuer will be available after late fitness tests, Real's defence will be without Pepe and Raphael due to injury.

Here is how both teams will line up:

Bayern Munich: Neuer; Lahm, Martinez, Boateng, Alaba; Alonso, Vidal; Robben, Thiago, Ribéry; Müller.

Real Madrid: Navas; Carvajal, Ramos, Nacho, Marcelo; Casemiro, Kroos, Modric; Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo.
