Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich: Head-2-Head, Prediction & Match Review

Real Madrid vs Bayern Munich

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich will face off in the Champions League for the 28th time in their lengthy and storied histories on Wednesday night at the Bernabeu in the second leg of their semifinal.

Following a thrilling 2-2 draw at the Allianz Arena last week, the two past European conquerors shook hands. Borussia Dortmund or Paris Saint-Germain will be waiting to greet the Bernabeu winner.

Real Madrid, no strangers to crushing dreams of Champions League glory, survived an early storm at the Allianz Arena last week and delivered a sucker punch akin to Vinicius Junior in the first half. However, the Brazilian was required to be Los Blancos’ late savior in the second half.

Leroy Sane’s thunderous near-post finish and Harry Kane’s composed penalty turned the first leg on its head.

However, Vinicius’s second of the evening ensured that the semi-final would be left hanging precariously after Kim Min-jae, whose performance was nothing short of catastrophic, felled Rodrygo inside the box.

2023/24 season story

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are two teams that could only have one of them win the Champions League and the top flight at the end of the season.

The visitors to the Spanish capital, however, had their title taken away from them by Bayer Leverkusen and are still yet to even place in the top three.

In fact, since shutting out Manchester United in December 2024, Bayern has failed to maintain a clean sheet away from home.

They have conceded multiple goals in eight of their previous ten games on opponent land, winning only three of those appallingly bad runs.

Bayern’s defensive woes continue; in nine prior encounters with the renowned Blancos manager, they have failed to record a clean sheet and have gone 16 games without one against Real Madrid; no team in Champions League history has gone winless against a manager as bad as Bayern’s.
