Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Bayern Munich meet Real Madrid in a live UEFA Champions League Quarter-Final 1st Leg match this Wednesday evening. Read the match predictions to find out why a home win is the betting tip at the Allianz Arena. Bayern Munich warmed up for this match with an impressive 4-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund while Real Madrid were held to a 1-1 draw at home to city rivals Atletico Madrid.
Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid Preview
Bayern Munich are likely to start with Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez in central defence, with Mats Hummels out injured. Philipp Lahm is back from suspension but Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller and Douglas Costa are doubts although the goalkeeper is likely to play. Robert Lewandowski will lead the line for the hosts, looking to add to his tally of 7 Champions League goals this season.
Real Madrid have to do some reshuffling at the back with both Pepe and Raphael Varane out injured. Nacho should start alongside Sergio Ramos at centre-back and Daniel Carvajal faces a late fitness test at right-back. Fabio Coentrao is short of match fitness but is unlikely to be involved unless Carvajal can’t play. Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale will form a three-pronged attack for the visitors.

Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid Prediction
Bayern are absolutely flying at home right now, winning their last seven matches and conceding just twice in that run. They warmed up for this match with a convincing victory over Borussia Dortmund, a team that Real Madrid struggled to get to grips with in the group phase.
Real Madrid got away with their slip-up at the weekend as Barcelona lost, so the La liga title still looks to be theirs to lose. There can be no such mistakes in this match though and it will be interesting to see how Los Blancos stand up with an unfamiliar defence.
Bayern have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 Champions League matches while Real Madrid have scored at least 2 goals in each their last 8. However, it’s rare that Bayern concede, let alone ship a couple of goals, so I’m tipping their sturdy defence to win them this game.
