With the second leg of the Champions League, the biggest game on is that between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Both sides are obviously full of talent and the outcome of this game is very important to both sides since a semi-final spot in the Champions League is up for grabs for the winning team. Real Madrid go into this clash having won the first leg away from home and they will surely be seen as the favourites.
Bayern Munich have defensive issues with Javi Martinez out injured and Mat Hummels doubtful with injury. That being said, this team can use the likes of Alaba at Centre Back and then play Rafina out wide but this is still not an ideal situation. Furthermore, they know that they will have to score at least 2 goals away from home in order to advance so that will not be an easy task.
Real Madrid on the other hand will have the home crowd behind them and they will feel as if they should do this job well unless something dreadful happens. This teams is full of match winners and Ronaldo seems to be getting some of his old form back so I think we are in for a treat.
Overall, I think Real Madrid will win this match. This side is filled with winners and at home I think they are simply going to be too strong for a Bayern Munich side that lost at home and will need to press to make up for the first leg. We are getting a great price on these bets and I think that betting on Madrid to win outright is the best option in this game.
