Real Madrid v Bayern Munich: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Real Madrid face Bayern Munich in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final second leg and the Racing Post's James Milton has picked out his three best bets for a fascinating clash at the Bernabeu.

The tie is level at 2-2 after an entertaining first leg in Germany and 14-time European champions Real are 2/5 to qualify for the final at Wembley.

Real Madrid v Bayern Munich betting tips and predictions

Draw - 14/5

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have had contrasting seasons in their domestic leagues but there was little to choose between the European heavyweights in last week's Champions League semi-final first leg.

While Barcelona's 4-2 defeat at Girona at the weekend confirmed Real as Primera Liga champions for the 36th time, Bayern have been blown away by Bayer Leverkusen in the 2023/24 Bundesliga title race.

A Champions League crown is the target for departing Bayern boss Thomas Tuchel, whose side led 2-1 against Real at the Allianz Arena before Vinicius Junior equalised from the penalty spot in the final 10 minutes.

That result made it four consecutive draws for Real in the Champions League knockout stages and they look too short in the betting to beat Bayern in 90 minutes on Wednesday.

Carlo Ancelotti's men have been involved in a couple of tight knockout ties already, beating RB Leipzig 1-0 in Germany before a 1-1 second-leg draw at home in the round of 16.

Their compelling quarter-final clash with holders Manchester City went down to the wire with Real winning on penalties after a 3-3 draw at the Bernabeu and a 1-1 stalemate at the Etihad Stadium.

City missed a host of chances to put the tie to bed before the shootout in Manchester and Bayern have the attacking quality to cause problems for Real in Madrid.

Tuchel's men put their Bundesliga travails behind them in the quarter-finals, beating favourites Arsenal 3-2 on aggregate thanks to impressive performances in both legs.

Bayern drew 2-2 at the Emirates Stadium, where the Gunners went off odds-on favourites, and they are capable of taking the semi-final tie to extra-time.

Leroy Sane to score or assist a goal - 13/8

Real went 1-0 down, 2-1 up and 3-2 down before salvaging a 3-3 first-leg draw with City in the quarter-finals and last week's away game at Bayern also ebbed and flowed.

Vincius gave the visitors the lead midway through the first half but Leroy Sane equalised shortly after half-time and a Harry Kane penalty put the hosts 2-1 up before the hour-mark.

Sane's superb strike crowned another fine display from the rejuvenated Germany winger, who had three shots at goal, two of them on target.

He also shone in the quarter-final victory over Arsenal and had five shots in the last-16 second-leg win over Lazio, helping Bayern overturn a 1-0 deficit from the away leg in Rome.

After being rested for the weekend Bundesliga defeat at Stuttgart, Sane should be raring to go in Madrid. He has claimed 19 goal contributions in 25 league starts this season and is a tempting bet to score or assist a goal against Real.     

Goal before 25:00 - 5/6

Fast starts have been a feature of Real's recent Champions League ties as they have scored four goals in the 24th minute or earlier in their last three games against City and Bayern.

The Citizens took a second-minute lead through Bernardo Silva in Real's last European fixture at the Bernabeu while last month's 3-2 league win over Barca was 1-1 after just 18 minutes.

Arsenal's Bukayo Saka and Bayern's Serge Gnabry traded goals in the first 18 minutes of the quarter-final first leg in north London so backing a goal to be scored before 25:00 looks a good bet in Madrid.
