The return legs of the Champions League semifinals take place this week, with Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich the clash scheduled for Wednesday.

We watched a thrilling first leg which saw both sides hit the back of the net on two occasions and hope Wednesday’s clash will be similar.

Real Madrid enter the game on the back of a comfortable 3-0 win over Cádiz - a victory that sealed the Spanish top flight title after Barcelona were beaten by Girona. Los Blancos proved once again how resilient they are in the first leg of Wednesday's tie. Carlo Ancelotti's side found a way to draw level after trailing 1-2 with just over 10 minutes remaining, and will look to finish the job on home soil.

Bayern Munich meanwhile were on the opposite end of things last weekend, as the Reds suffered a 1:3 defeat at the hands of VfB Stuttgart. To emphasise just how bad Tuchel's men have been this season, it was their first defeat to the Swabians since 2018. And having been knocked out of all other Cup competitions, the only chance for Bayern to get some silverware this season is the Champion.

Betting Tips Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich: Real Madrid to win & BTTS – Yes

Real Madrid have been difficult to beat in recent months. Los Blancos have gone twenty games unbeaten since the defeat to Atlético Madrid in the Copa del Rey of 16 in January. They registered 13 wins in that spell. Real Madrid also have a great record against Bayern at this ground, with the hosts boasting five wins from the last six Champions League meetings between the two sides.

Having said that, Bayern Munich boast the services of Harry Kane who is the joint top scorer in this competition this season with eight goals. The Reds failed to score in just one of their last fifteen games across all competitions, and also have a great record against Real Madrid when it comes to scoring goals.

Real Madrid team news

Head coach Carlo Ancelotti is expected to make wholesale changes to his Real Madrid side that was on the pitch from kickoff in the win over Cadiz in the league last weekend.

Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Junior and Federico Valverde – who featured as substitutes – are expected to return to the XI as will Rodrygo, Toni Kroos and Antonio Rüdiger who didn’t play any part in that game.

Thibaut Courtois made his first appearance for the Los Blancos 268 days after suffering a knee injury against Cadiz and will be hoping to keep his place between the sticks.
