Bayern Munich will look to overturn a 2-1 deficit in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on 18 April.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 7.45pm BST. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport 2.


Isco scored a late winner as Real Madrid beat Sporting Gijon 3-2 at El Molinon on 15 April to maintain top spot in La Liga. The Spanish giants have only lost one of 31 European ties, in which they have won the first leg away from home.

Pepe (ribs), Raphael Varane (hamstring) and Gareth Bale (calf) are all sidelined through injury for the hosts.

Bayern Munich were held to a goalless draw by Bayer Leverkusen at the BayArena on 15 April, as their lead over Red Bull Leipzig at the top of the Bundesliga table was cut to eight points. The Bavarian giants must score at least two goals at the Bernabeu to have any chance of progressing after they lost the first leg by a 2-1 margin at home last week.

Defenders Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels are injury doubts, while Javi Martinez is suspended.

What managers say

Zinedine Zidane: "Bayern have a brilliant squad in all departments. We know they have a lot of quality, but like any side they have their weak spots. We'll need to play our game, prepare as well as we did for the first leg, and we won't be resting on our laurels. Bayern will be a big game which will be won on small details." [via]

Carlo Ancelotti: "We will need a great performance to go through. We have less of chance than a week ago, but we still have a chance. I was here for two years, I have unforgettable memories from that time." [via]
