Bayern Munich – Real Madrid
Bayern Munich welcomes Real Madrid in the big derby of the UEFA Champions League 1/2-finals. Let’s have a look at this majestic clash in our asian soccer bets for today.
Some people call this tie “a final before the final”. And you can see why – two of Europe’s greatest teams are facing each other, being just one step away from the big final in the city of Kiev. When these two sides are playing each other in the Champions League, there’s always a lot of passion and interesting moments on the pitch. These games remain in the history of the Champions League as classics.
Bayern Munich reached the 1/2-finals after eliminating another Spanish side in the previous round – Sevilla. The Andalusians beat Manchester United during the 1/8-finals, but they were no match for the Bavarian giant. A 2-1 win in Sevilla and a 0-0 draw in Munich allowed Bayern to reach this phase of the competition.
Meanwhile Real Madrid reached the 1/2-finals after some dramatic moments against Juventus. The Los Blancos won the first match in Turin with 3-0, but surprisingly were down with the same result in Madrid. A late penalty and a goal from Cristiano Ronaldo allowed Real Madrid to sneak through the 1/2-finals.
For sure this is a very unpredictable game. Bayern Munich are back to their best with Jupp Heynckes, who have won the competition with both teams – Bayern and Real Madrid. He’s the last manager who led Bayern to European glory, doing it in 2013.
Real Madrid on the other hand failed to impress in La Liga, but they remain a very strong team in the Champions League.
