Current Form

Bayern Munich are in great form. They have won 4 straight games. The last game they played was last weekend against Frankfurt, where they won 2-1. However, their 11-year Bundesliga title run came to an end. The only way Bayern can save this season is by winning the UEFA Champions League this season. Otherwise, this will be their first trophyless season since 2011/12. Now, they need to get past their old rivals, Real Madrid. In the quarterfinal against Arsenal, Thomas Tuchel had great tactics and prepared the team pretty well. Bayern, have dominated from the very start and with the help of their crowd, they were attacking Arsenal from the very first minute. Joshua Kimmich scored a great header and sent them to the semifinals of the Champions League as we predicted.

Real Madrid are also in great form. They have won 4 straight games. One of those games was El Clásico just one week ago. Jude Bellingham scored once again in extra time to give them the victory against Barcelona. Right now, Real Madrid are in first spot with 84 points. They are 13 points above Girona and Barcelona. One thing is sure, the Los Blancos are the new LA Liga champions. In their last game, Real Madrid won 1-0 against Real Sociedad. Carlo Ancelotti managed to bench some star players for them to rest up for Bayern. Carlo Ancelotti said “We are up against an opponent that has weapons, quality, strength. We have to defend well and avoid counter-attacks. We must play a complete game. We are very happy to be here; I think very few thought we would have been. The goal is to play another match after this tie too.”

Best Bet to Make

Looking at their last head-to-head meetings, Bayern have struggled against Real Madrid and have not won any of the last seven head-to-head meetings. They drew only once, and lost six times against the Los Blancos. This run also included three straight home defeats against them. Carlo Ancelotti also has an unbeaten record against Bayern Munich. According to the bookies, this should be a 50-50 meeting. However, Bayern at home are always dangerous, and we believe that they have a decent chance against Real Madrid. Even though they underperformed in the Bundesliga, Bayern has a great team with great players.

That being said, Bayern winning is a value bet.
