Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, two heavyweights of European soccer, battle on Wednesday in the Champions League quarterfinals. The first-leg match will take place at the home of Bayern as both look for a leg up after the first 90 minutes. Here’s what to know.
When: Wednesday at 2:45 p.m. ET
Where: Alianz Arena in Munich, Germany
TV: FS1 and ESPN Deportes
Stream: fuboTV and Fox Sports Go
What’s at stake: A chance to get a nice advantage after the first leg. Bayern will look to win while not concede, while Real’s plan will be to get a couple away goals and head back to the Iberian Peninsula with confidence and momentum.
Player to watch: Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski, who had two goals at the weekend. He is tall and strong which is needed against Sergio Ramos and Pepe. Expect the Polish striker to get some good looks on goal, and if he can finish, Bayern will be in great shape.
Bayern to win – 3/4
Draw – 14/5
Real to win – 16/5
Prediction: The first thing that comes to mind is that 2013-14 semifinal between the two where Real crushed Bayern 5-0 over two legs. Many of the players on that German team are still on the squad and remember what that result was like. They get a little payback in the first leg. Bayern 3, Real Madrid 2.
