Bayern Munich are up against it as they prepare to welcome Atletico Madrid to the Allianz Arena for the second leg of their Champions League semi-final on 3 May.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport Europe.


Bayern Munich's wait for a fourth successive league title continued as Borussia Monchengladbach fought back from a goal down to claim a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena on 30 April. The Bavarian giants need to win by two clear goals to progress to the Champions League final after Saul Niguez's wonder goal in the first leg gave Atletico Madrid the edge in the tie.

Holger Badstuber (ankle) and Arjen Robben (groin) both remain sidelined, while Franck Ribery missed the Gladbach match with a back problem and is a doubt.

Antoine Griezmann scored the only goal of the game as Atletico Madrid beat Rayo Vallecano 1-0 at the weekend to stay in the La Liga title race. The Spanish club have lost eight of their 16 competitive encounters with German clubs on German soil.

Centre-back Diego Godin (thigh) and winger Yannick Carrasco (ankle) both return from injury for the visitors.

What managers say

Pep Guardiola: "Everyone has killed me, but I'm still alive. We have another game left [in the tie], and if we lose it then you can kill me, but we still have a chance. Maybe it would've been better to play [Thomas Muller from the start], but I had to make a decision and it was nothing against him, just tactics. I didn't want the same to happen to me as last season against Barcelona. Ultimately, I have to make decisions, but the tie isn't over yet. We're still in it."

Diego Simeone: "In general we went for fresh players, and as time went on put in those we thought were necessary. The game [against Rayo] went as we had imagined, and we have taken an important victory at a time when the points count for much more than at any other stage of the season. When the games are coming all in a row, when it is not easy to keep your focus, it is very important to win. We did that, and we are very happy."
