Watch Bayern Munich vs. Atletico Madrid live stream free in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semifinal on Tuesday, May 3 from Allianz Arena, Munich, Germany.
Atletico Madrid is riding high after taking the first leg 1-0 at home, and now manager Diego Simeone wants his men to put it away and move on to the finals in Milan. However, the Spaniards will have to contend with Bayern Munich, who has been unstoppable at home, winning their last 11 UCL matches in Munich, according to the Independent.
If Bayern were to prevail in Tuesdays encounter, they would match Manchester United’s record between 2006-2009, which is more than an impressive feat to carry out. The Germans know they will have the crowd on their side, which, after the disappointing loss in Madrid, is more than ready for a comeback.

Fans who watch Bayern Munich vs. Atletico Madrid live stream from Munich on Tuesday won’t only witness an epic match on the pitch, they will also see a clash between two legendary managers who bring two completely different styles to the encounter. Coming from similar circumstances and on the brink of reaching the most coveted title in Europe, Madrid’s Diego Simeone will face Bayern’s Pep Guardiola, who is a master of counterattack. That matchup will be only one aspect of this game.
Simeone admitted getting nervous before all his matches, but this has added significance for a team that is used to being looked down on and thought less of in comparison to La Liga rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona. The Argentinian coach recently told ESPN.
“I am always afraid because I know I can be fired after any game. We are coming out to win and they will too. We are two teams who want to win. We know what we have to do but we are coming out to win.
“We have to look at the reality. We want to win tomorrow. That is our idea and our plan. We want to play football, and play really well. Tomorrow it will depend on our mental strength and who interprets the situations best.”
Despite the advantage from winning the first leg, those who watch Bayern Munich vs. Atletico Madrid live stream from Munich will see a determined Guardiola. Bayern knows the fans will turn out and be a vocal 11th player for their team, as club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stated.
“We’ll throw everything into it with 70,000 supporters and deliver a huge fight, that I can promise you. I hope that this fight will lead us to (the final in) Milan.”

However, Bayern will have to contend with a stronger Atleti than they saw in the first leg when defender Diego Godin returns to the pitch. Simeone’s men will be rested after he gave his starters a break from the weekend action in La Liga.
This will be a case of ball possession vs. counterattack, and whoever prevails will be going to the UCL finals in Milan. Atletico Madrid is certainly the one with less to lose since Bayern is the bigger name, so don’t underestimate the Spaniards who already gave the Germans the big upset.
