In the UCL semifinals in 2014 and 2018, as well as in the quarterfinals in 2017, Real Madrid defeated Bayern, and they went on to win the championship each time.

Reasons to support Real Madrid

Following four Champions League games that ended in draws, including one where they had to defeat the reigning champions on penalty kicks in the second leg of their quarterfinal matchup with Manchester City, Los Blancos will be itching to go back on the winning side. Real Madrid has not had any trouble scoring in the UCL; after losing to CSKA Moscow 3-0 in December 2018, they have scored in 28 straight games in the tournament. Given that Bayern hasn’t kept a clean sheet in 16 consecutive meetings against Los Blancos, the team should have little trouble continuing that run on Wednesday.
Real Madrid is led by Brazilians Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior, who are two of seven players who are tied for sixth place in the UCL with five goals each. In the quarterfinals, Vinicius scored a brace in the first leg against the Bavarians, while Rodrygo converted in both legs. Jude Bellingham, an English midfielder, has also contributed well to the league. He shares second position with Rodrygo and four other players after scoring five goals and dishing out four assists.

The reasons for supporting Bayern Munich

Harry Kane, who has eight goals in the Champions League and is level with Kylian Mbappe of PSG for first place, leads the Bavarians offensively. The 30-year-old English striker, who has four goals in his past four UCL games, gave Bayern a 2-1 lead over Real Madrid in the first leg when he scored in the 57th minute. With three assists in this tournament, Kane, who leads the German Bundesliga with a career-high 36 goals, is tied for seventh place.
Kane has scored 22 goals in 24 games across all competitions since mid-December, never going without a goal for more than two games at a time. After a long wait, winger Leroy Sane scored in the 53rd minute of the first leg. The 28-year-old had not scored in 27 appearances in all competitions before to scoring twice in a Bundesliga encounter on October 28 against Darmstadt 98. Choose your team from this list.
