Real Madrid are in the driving seat in this Champions League semi-final having won the first leg in Germany with a 2-1 scoreline. Anyway, the current holders cannot afford to be complacent about getting the job done because they were pegged back from a 3-0 advantage by Italian giants Juventus in the previous round before being awarded a last-gasp penalty which Cristiano Ronaldo tucked away to seal it. Furthermore, their domestic season has been underwhelming as Barcelona have secured the title with four games left in La Liga. Since 2011-12, these clubs have met in two previous semi-finals and one quarter-final of the Champions League and Los Blancos have recorded six consecutive wins over the Bavarians.

Dani Carvajal has been been ruled out for Real Madrid through injury. Isco both picked up a knock at the Allianz Arena, and he could be replaced by Marcos Asensio. Spanish defender Nacho returned to training at the start of the week after a long spell on the sidelines. As a result, Lucas Vazquez may have to fill in again at right back. Young Moroccan Achraf Hakimi is a viable  alternative. Cristiano Ronaldo has been rested last weekend and will be restored upfront alongside Karim Benzema, who was named on the bench in the first leg. No changes are expected in midfield, where the likes of Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Casemiro are expected to retain their starting berth.

After suffering a 2-1 defeat at home, despite being the better team, Bayern now must come from behind and defeat Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu. Jupp Heynckes' men need to avoid to waste as many chances as they did in the first leg. They are in a similar position to when the two sides clashed in last season's competition, Bayern won 2-1 at the Bernabeu to level the tie on aggregate but lost out to two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and one from Marco Asensio in extra time. No team has ever overturned a 2-1 home first-leg defeat in the Champions League. The Bavarians cruised to a 4-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, altough they have already locked up the Bundesliga title and played with several fringe players.

Arjen Robben and Jerome Boateng were forced off during the opening half of the first leg and are major doubts. Javi Martinez also faces last-minute fitness test in a race to make the teamsheet though David Alaba could return. Niklas Süle will partner Mats Hummels at the heart of the back four. Jupp Heynckes is expected to play with a 4-3-3 system in which Robert Lewandowski will be flanked by Franck Ribery and Thomas muller upfront. James Rodriguez and Thiago Alcantara appear sure starters in midfield. The likes of Kingsley Coman, Manuel Neuer and Arturo Vidal remain sidelined for the away side.


Real Madrid (4-3-1-2): Navas; Vazquez, Varane, S.Ramos, Marcelo; Modric, Casemiro, Kroos; Isco; Benzema, Ronaldo

Bayern Munich (4-3-3): Ulreich; Kimmich, Sule, Hummels, Alaba; J.Rodriguez, J.Martinez, T.Alcantara; Muller, Lewandowski, Ribery
