Bayern Munich booked their place in the semis with relative comfort having overcome Sevilla 2-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals (1-2 in Spain and 0-0 in Germany). Heynckes' fourth spell in charge of Bayern Munich has been exceptional. When he took charge, Bayern were five points behind Dortmund in the title race. The Bavarians have now secured a sixth straight domestic title, and are 24 points ahead of BVB. Since returning from the Bundesliga’s winter break they have scored at least four times in half their 20 matches across all competitions. Bayern are on stunning form, having won nine of their last 11 games, scoring 40 goals in the process. Plus, they are undefeated at home this season, even keeping clean sheets in five of their last six.

The hosts welcomed back goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to training this week after six months out. Anyway, this tie will come too soon for him to be involved. Arturo Vidal will not feature again this season as he requires a knee surgery while Corentin Tolisso and David Alaba are not 100% fit. Youngster Kingsley Coman will also miss the game as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury. Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez are likely to anchor the midfield while Thomas Muller, Arjen Robben and James Rodriguez should support the lone striker Robert Lewandowski. In defense, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng will form the central pair.

Real Madrid have saved their best performances and results for the Champions League, albeit they only scraped through the last round despite winning the first leg 3-0 away to Juventus in the quarter-finals. The sit 3rd in La Liga, 15 points behind leaders Barcelona and 4 behind second-placed Atletico Madrid. The Blancos have won ten and lost two of their 16 league games away from the Santiago Bernabeu and have managed back to back victories at PSG and Juventus in Champions League. The Galacticos meet Bayern in the knockout stages for the fourth time in seven seasons - Real Madrid have won four of those six legs in that time, losing the other two.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who has scored in each of his last 11 Champions League matches (a competition record), will lead the line. Benzema will partner the Portuguese star while Isco will play as number ten behind the attacking duo. The likes of Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Luka Modric are expected to start in midfield. Marco Asensio and Mateo Kovacic provide viable alternatives in midfield. Sergio Ramos is available again after seving a one-match ban in the competition, meaning he will partner Raphael Varane at the heart of the back, with Dani Carvajal and Marcelo on the flanks. The only expected absentee for the visitors is centre back Nacho.
