With a place in the Champions League final up for grabs, Bayern Munich lock horns with Real Madrid in the second-leg of the semi-final at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday evening.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm BST. Live coverage is on UTV and ITV 1. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Bayern come into this fixture after registering a comeback win against Werder Bremen in their previous Bundesliga at home on Saturday. The Bavarians were trailing 1-2 at half time as Franck Ribery's goal was sandwiched between strikes from Theodor Gebre Selassie and Aaron Hunt.

However, a brace from Claudio Pizarro and goals from Bastian Schweinsteiger and Arjen Robben secured a 5-2 win for the home side.

Pep Guardiola's side have successfully defended their Bundesliga crown and must now overturn the 0-1 deficit in the Champions League, if they want to defend their title by progressing into the final for the fourth time in five years.

Bayern's top scorer Mario Mandzukic runs the risk of missing the Champions League final in Lisbon if he gets booked at the Allianz Arena.

In the first-leg at the Santiago Bernabeu, Karim Benzema's solitary goal settled the tie 1-0 in Real's favour. The La Liga outfit were happy to keep the clean sheet and not concede an away goal last Wednesday.

However, the second-leg will be a tense affair for Bayern as Carlo Ancelotti's side are on a winning run of four matches in all competitions and have an opportunity to increase their advantage by scoring an away goal.

The Spanish capital outfit were powered by Cristiano Ronaldo in their previous La Liga fixture as they ran out 4-0 winners over Osasuna. The Portuguese international netted the first two goals of the game before Sergio Ramos and Daniel Carvajal headed home the third and fourth goal respectively.

Real are currently third in the league table with 82 points, six points behind Atletico Madrid. However, they have played only 34 matches and have a game in hand over their city rivals. Any slipups from Diego Simeone's side could tilt the title race in their favour.

Real last won Europe's top prize for the ninth time in 2002 and since then have never managed to reach the final. However, they now have the chance to go one-step away from achieving the feat for the 10th time by beating the defending champions in their own backyard.

The bigger worry for Ancelotti is that three of his players are walking a disciplinary tightrope, as the Spanish trio of Xabi Alonso, Sergio Ramos and Asier Illarramendi are one booking away from missing the showdown in Lisbon on 24 May.

What Managers Say

Pep Guardiola: "Madrid counterattack at pace. If you lose the ball you need to make sure you close down the space and make the defence compact. They will seek to defend their advantage for 90 minutes, but I'm not sure how. We're already German champions and there is lots more we can achieve. We cannot do it by ourselves tomorrow. We need the fans, who have been outstanding so far. They can push us towards the final. The team want it, I want it, the fans want it, and together we can achieve it."

Carlo Ancelotti: "We know tomorrow's game is going to be very difficult. We are playing against a great team with a small advantage, so we are not that stupid as to think we have already qualified. It's going to be really hard. It is true that we have athletes of the highest calibre; we are physically very strong. It is possible to advance even if we don't score, but our intention is to do so. We have scored a lot in the UEFA Champions League and in the Liga and my intention is that we do so again in this one."
