Real Madrid vs Bayern by Albet Tipstein
The Spanish royals against the almighty Bavarians.
The two teams have met 20 times in the past; out of the 20, 7 were victories for Real, 11 victories for Bayern and just 2 games ended up as a draw. All of the wins of the Spanish team were at the Bernabeu; non in Germany.
Ancelotti suffered no loss against the Bavarians, with 4 wins and 2 draws against Bayern Munich.
Pep Guardiola is invincible at the Bernabeu; having 5 wins and 2 draws out of his past 7 visits.
Real Madrid's moral has risen after their victory over their rivals Barcelona at the final of the Spanish cup, thanks to the amazing goal of the young Welsh rising star, Gareth Bale. Their next objective is to get to the final of the Champions League, something very difficult to achieve when taking in account the impressive record and performance of Bayern Munich in the Champions League the past years. The Spanish queen was eliminated for three consecutive years in the semi-finals of the CL; from Barcelona , Bayern Munich and Borrusia Dortmund. However, they're invincible in their last 17 games in the Champions League.
Tonight's apperanace of the home team will be mostly depended by the performance of the doubtful Bale who suffered from a flu in the past days, and Real's biggest star C.Ronaldo who has just returned from an injury. Their potential to play at their highest standards, and the level to which the two key-players are still affected is currently unknown, and only the final outcome on the pitch will show how heavily is their physical performance affected.
Possible starting line-up: Casillas - Carvajal, Ramos, Pepe, Coentrao - Modric, Di Maria, Alonso - Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo.
The Reds are coming from a pretty negative performance; in their last 4 games in the Bundesliga they suffered from 2 losses, picked one draw and won just once the past weekend over Braunschweig. Bayern Munich will travel to the Bernabeu without any significant absentees, excluding Thiago(CM) and Diego(LB). Neuer returns from the minjor injury, had a regular training and will be probably used in the starting line-up. Schweinsteiger returns from his latest suspension from the game with Manchester United at the Old Trafford and will also be used in the starting line-up.
Possible starting line-up: Neuer - Lahm, Boateng, Dante, Alaba - Martínez - Robben, Kroos, Schweinsteiger, Ribery - Mandzukic.
I believe that the two teams would not start the game very aggressively; not much is to be risked in the 1st out of the two games for the Champions League semi-finals. By the 2nd halve though the game would have 'spread' and they will chase a goal much more intensely and aggressively.
A significant fact for Bayern is that after this year's Champions League Group stage, all of the 4 games played (2 against Arsenal and 2 against Man Utd) had more goals in the 2nd halve than in the 1st, with NO goal being scored in the 1st halve in any of the 4 games.
Great odds give around 2.00, for more goals to be scored at 2nd halve, a quite risky pick for any football games but pretty reasonable and with high chance to be confirmed.
