On Tuesday, fans that can’t attend in person will be able to watch Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid live online as the second leg semifinal in the UEFA Champions League kicks off at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern comes from a disappointing performance in the first leg, in which they lost 1-0 to Real Madrid, who now holds a slight lead in the aggregate and even though they walked all over Werder on their Saturday Bundesliga match, they have a lot to prove to their fans.
Real was the clear leader in the counter-attack game, while Bayern Munich – -the current champions — held possession of the football most of the time, however, this was not enough in the end.
Wednesday saw the return of Portuguese kicker Cristiano Ronaldo after he missed four games due to problems with his knee and hamstring, however his scoring streak was broken, as the only goal of the game came via Karim Benzama.
Gareth Bale was suffering from the flu and was not 100 percent either, but Carlo Ancelotti expects both to play on Tuesday.
Those following the Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid match will almost certainly watch one heck of a game during which both teams will fight to the death.
Real — who is attempting to win its 10th Champions League, the most by any team — will try to avenge the crushing loss by penalties two years ago at the hands of Bayern.

Pep Guardiola was slammed in the German media for a lack-luster performance by Bayern after being a dominating force and clinching the Bundesliga.
Losing 1-0 to a weaker Real Madrid didn’t go overly well with the proud Germans and now Bayern Munich is forced to win by more than that score to move to the final once again.
And it will be no easy feat, even at the Allianz, as Carlo Ancelotti is expected to have his full list of starters with Ronaldo most likely playing all 90 (or 120) minutes and Bale back after getting over a virus. BBC is back for “Los Blancos” with Benzama joining the rest of Real’s attack line.
Here are the most likely rosters for the Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid match on Tuesday, April 29:
Real Madrid: Iker Casillas; Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Dani Carvajal; Ángel di María, Xabi Alonso, Luka Modrić; Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale.
Bayern Munich: Manuel Neuer; David Alaba, Dante, Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm; Javi Martínez; Franck Ribéry, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Arjen Robben; Mario Mandžukić.
