Its all set to be a cracker at the Bernabeu tonight as Winner report this morning they are enhancing their odds on the game, with Real Madrid now available at 3/1 (was 7/5) while Bayern can be backed at 7/2 (was 19/10).
The Real Madrid are considered favourites by Winner to pick up a vital win against Bayern Munich in the Champions League semi-finals as two of Europe’s biggest clubs fight over a spot in the final.
Real Madrid still have a resemble chance of doing the treble this year however the Spanish giants will need to make overcome a Bayern Munich side who are searching for a treble themselves this season.
Real’s path to the final four has seen them put many of Germany’s best sides to the sword having knocked out Schalke and Borussia Dortmund on their way to the semi-finals.
The good news for Madrid is that they will have Cristiano Ronaldo back in the squad after overcoming a hamstring injury which will see him line-up alongside Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema in attack.
However, Marcelo is still a big doubt as he continues to struggle with muscular issues meaning that Fabio Coentrao is likely to start at the Bernabeu.
Real are familiar with the Bayern Munich squad having faced them on nine previous encounters and the Spanish side have the favourable record only losing to the Germans just twice in the past.
Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are still looking good to become the first side to successfully defend their title having eliminated English giants Arsenal and Manchester United on their path to the final four.
However, the Germans are going to be without a couple of their big names for the trip to Spain as Thiago Alcantara and Xherdan Shaqiri are both injured leaving Guardiola with some gaps to fill in the midfield.
Despite their absences, both Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez are back from suspension giving them the opportunity to feature at the expense of Toni Kroos or Thomas Muller.
Real are certainly no strangers to Bayern boss Pep Guardiola who boasts a good record against the Spanish side winning nine out of his 15 clashes against Madrid throughout his managerial career with Barcelona.
It seems that the balances are evenly tipped ahead of the first leg in Spain but Real will need to get something from the clash if they are to secure their place in the final of Europe’s biggest football competition.
