Real Madrid the current European champions are looking forward to a third consecutive champions league final in a row. They are ought to welcome the Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich at the Santiago Bernabeu later today. They are seeking to build on the 2-1 victory over Bayern at the first leg.
On the first leg of the champions league between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, Bayern constantly got the first goal from a gimmick. Then before it was time for half time Real left-back Marcelo equalized. Ascensio coming off the bench to tilt the tie the tie in favor of the holders with the winner just before the bench.
The two giant clubs met in last season’s quarterfinals. And Real Madrid becoming the first team to retain the champions league trophy, but claiming a 12th European title overall.
This is Madrid’s record eighth successive champions league semi-final. While Bayern is in the last four for the sixth time in seven seasons.
This is the clubs fourth two-legged tie in seven seasons, Madrid winning two of those to buyers one. The teams basically played in 11 previous knockout contests – all in the European cup – Madrid winning six of those and Bayern five.
