The Champions League continues tonight, and after the pyrotechnics of Liverpool’s win at Anfield Tuesday the second semifinal has something to live up to. Luckily it’s between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, the most frequently played game in the history of this competition.
Real start as favourites, after all they are going for their third Champions League title in a row. However, their domestic form hasn’t been sparkling and doubts exist as to whether this side is now approaching its ‘sell by’ date.
Bayern have already wrapped up the Bundesliga and the German Cup and are now looking to cap the season with the treble, starting with this home leg.
This will be the third time since 2011-12 the two sides have met in the semifinals of this tournament, and the score stands at one each.
It’s difficult to separate these two sides, and we’re not going to try. We’ll take a punt on a draw tonight.
Recommendation: A draw, 1 pt, at 3/1, Betfair
