Date: 25th April 2018

In the last round, Bayern Munich were involved in a low key affair with Sevilla.

The second leg of that quarterfinal game ended goalless with the Bavarian’s progressing following a 2-1 win at Seville in the first leg.

This game is most likely going to be played at a higher tempo with Real Madrid aggressively looking for their third consecutive title.

Bayern followed their draw with Sevilla with three successive wins over Borussia Monchengladbach, Bayer Leverkusen and Hannover 96, scoring 14 goals in those matches.

While Bayern Munich had an easy ride at the last round, Real Madrid’s campaign almost came to an end.

Los Blancos led Juventus 3-0 heading into the second leg at the Bernabeu, but they found themselves 3-0 down with 30 minutes left to play.

In the end, a controversial penalty awarded by Englishman, Michael Oliver was converted by Christiano Ronaldo to help the Spaniards reach this round.

Ronaldo has scored 120 goals in this competition already and he has netted 15 in just 10 Champions League games this season, netting in every single game for Real Madrid this season.

Bayern Munich are unbeaten at home in all competition since April last year, and they have won 19 of the 22 games they have played at the Allianz Arena this season.
