Real Madrid v Bayern: line-ups, Fantasy tips, form guide

All you need to know about the semi-final second leg between Real Madrid and Bayern.

Reporter's view: Here we are again – what seems like an annual event – Real Madrid facing Bayern at the business end of the UEFA Champions League. The holders are in the driving seat having scored two away goals last week and are masters at finding a way through. Expect this to be a cagey affair, however, with Bayern in need of at least two goals. Madrid are likely to sit back and look to hit them on the counter – just the way they like it.

Zinédine Zidane, Real Madrid coach
It's a semi-final – we know how important it is and what we have to do. We don't have to change what we're doing. We need to show in this game that we deserve and want to go through. What I can tell you is that whatever happens, we're a squad, a team, and we can do anything. The key for us – and what we have to do – is to think about winning the game and go onto the pitch wanting to do that. We need to go out to score quickly and that's what we'll try to do.

Jupp Heynckes, Bayern coach
I'll be trying to rectify mistakes. We'll try to attack. That's the Bayern DNA: we always want to score. We need to be more efficient than we were in the first leg and we need to take our chances like they did. Madrid know it's the game of the year and that they need to put on a great performance. Little details will be fundamental. For 93 minutes, the players need to be very switched on.
