Bayern Munich v Real Madrid will play on Wednesday (19:45, UK Time) the first leg of the quarter-finals round in the Champions League. Both teams met back in 2014 and the German side is claiming revenge since then.
Bayern Múnich v Real Madrid Preview
Bayern Munich are fully motivated to beat this time Real Madrid. Nobody forgets the shocking result Los Blancos got in 2014 with Carlo Ancelotti on the bench. Now the Italian manager is sitting on the other bench and wants to continue with their good run this season. With the Bundesliga title in the pocket and alive in the German Cup, the Champions League is the goal. They have some important doubts, because Lewandowski and Matt Hummels have some problems.
After the draw in the derby, Los Blancos travel to Germany to try to obtain a good result in the first leg. They’ve been doing great in the big clashes this season so far, although the feelings are not the best after the game against Atlético Madrid. Zinedine Zidane cannot count on Varane and Pepe, both injured, so Nacho will be Sergio Ramos’ pair. Initially, Isco shouldn’t have a spot in the line-up because the BBC are untouchable.
