Real Madrid

Real Madrid needed a penalty shootout to overcome Manchester City, but they have a knack for persevering and advancing despite the odds stacked against them. Los Blancos are currently dominating La Liga this season with an outstanding record of 25 wins, 6 draws, and 1 loss, placing them at the top of the table. 

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich have had a fairly good season in the Bundesliga. They have had 21 victories, 3 draws, and 6 defeats, losing the league title to Bayer Leverkusen. The German giants then demonstrated resilience as they successfully secured a narrow 1-0 win in the second leg to win the tie.  

Verdict: In this regard, Real Madrid comes out on top as they currently top the La Liga table while Bayern Munich's form place them second in the Bundesliga which is a bit weaker than La Liga. 

Key players

Real Madrid

With their perfect blend of youthful energy, dynamic play and vast experience, Real Madrid are a thorn in the side of any opponent, something Manchester City found out the hard way. With key players like Rodrygo, Jude Bellingham, Vinicius Junior, Valverde, and Rudiger on the pitch, Real Madrid are the most formidable team and can turn any match against the flow. Not to forget old warhorses like Modric, Kroos, Carvajal and co. 

Bayern Munich 

Bayern Munich are no pushovers. The Bavarians have the likes of Harry Kane, Sané, Musiala, Davies, and Gnabry (if fit), who can cause trouble for any opponent on any given day.

Verdict: Both teams are boastful of talented squads that are firing on all cylinders with the potential to create the unimaginable. However, Real Madrid edges this as their more experienced heads are of better quality. 

Head To head

This historic fixture is arguably one of the biggest matchups in all of Europe, with a rich history. Overall, both sides are nearly evenly matched with Real Madrid recording 12 wins and Bayern Munich recording 11 wins with 3 games ending in a draw. However, judging by the past decade, Los Blancos have the edge with six wins out of seven games. 

Verdict: Real Madrid have the advantage here. They have won six of their last seven matches which is a massive mental advantage for the Spanish giants.

Team News

Real Madrid 

Real Madrid will be without David Alaba and Thibaut Courtois due to long-term knee injuries, although Courtois has returned to training he is a potential doubt for the game. Ferland Mendy is likely to be back in time for the match alongside Jude Bellingham. 

Bayern Munich

The return of Musiala is a huge boost for the team. If the likes of Coman and Gnabry are back in addition to Sane, Madrid would have a tough time containing them. 

Verdict: With key players gradually returning to fitness, both teams are looking strong in their quest to get to the Champions League final.
