UEFA Champions League semi-final 2nd leg preview: Real Madrid on the brink of another final

Gbenga Isaac


Real Madrid will look to make it to yet another Champions League final when they entertain Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu. Carlo Ancelotti’s side come into this game as newly crowned La Liga champions, after a 3-0 victory over Cadiz was followed by a Barcelona 4-2 loss to Girona.

That has left them 13 points clear of second placed Girona with just four games to play. Players were rested in the victory over Cadiz, as attention now turns to capturing a 15th Champions League crown.

Bayern on the other hand warmed up for this one with a 3-1 loss to VFB Stuttgart, which most certainly didn’t go down well with the Bayern faithful. They were the more dominant side in the first leg against Los Blancos, but given the form of both teams, they come into this as the underdogs. Will the goals of Harry Kane be enough to see them through to another final?
