Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid: Preview, TV schedule and how to watch online

Paul Gilham

Bayern Munich will look to overturn a 1-0 deficit to Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.

Real Madrid countered their way to a 1-0 win at the Santiago Bernabéu in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal against Bayern Munich, but now the really difficult part starts. They'll look to withstand a barrage from their Bavarian hosts in the return fixture at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday, and make the final for the first time in over a decade.

Bayern will no doubt dominate possession, but the first leg demonstrated that Madrid are more than capable when it comes to defensive organisation. With Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale set to start, they'll also look to take advantage of any space in behind Philipp Lahm and David Alaba on the break, especially if Bayern become more and more desperate as the game wears on.

Bayern will be without Thiago Alcântara and Xherdan Shaqiri through injury, as well as second-choice keeper Tom Starke. Madrid were without Pepe and Karim Benzema on the weekend, though they should be fit to start. However, their teammates Sami Khedira, Álvaro Arbeloa and Jesé are all out injured.
