Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid: Lineups

Alex Grimm

Real Madrid are up 1-0. Bayern need a comeback at home. A spot in the Champions League final is on the line. Here are the lineups.

In less than one hour, the second leg of the Champions League semifinal between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid will kick-off at the Allianz Arena in Munich. Madrid lead 1-0 after the first leg, so the pressure will be on the home side to go on the attack. Here's how both teams will line up.

Bayern's lineup looks a bit different from the first leg. Pep Guardiola has decided to make a couple adjustments, notably dropping back Philipp Lahm into a fullback role, replacing Rafinha. Thomas Müller will take over the central attacking midfield role, moving Bastian Schweinsteiger into a deeper midfield role alongside Toni Kroos. Javi Martinez will remain on the bench, making Jerome Boateng the starter in the central defense.

Carlo Ancelotti is making just one change from his first leg lineup, bringing the now-healthy Gareth Bale back into the starting 11 in place of Isco. Cristiano Ronaldo is also back at 100 percent, fresh off a tremendous performance over the weekend during which he scored two spectacular goals in Madrid's win over Osasuna.

Bayern Munich (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; David Alaba, Jerome Boateng, Dante, Philipp Lahm; Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos; Arjen Robben, Thomas Müller, Franck Ribéry; Mario Mandžukić.

Real Madrid (4-3-3): Iker Casillas; Fábio Coentrão, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Dani Carvajal; Ángel di María, Xabi Alonso, Luka Modrić; Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale.
