While Real Madrid's 2-1 win over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena was an excellent result, there is a feeling that Zinedine Zidane's side missed the chance to land the knock out block in this tie.

Down to 10 and missing both Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels, Bayern were on the ropes and only the brilliance of Manuel Neuer in goal kept the German champions from conceding four of five goals.

Carlo Ancelotti's team are still in with a chance, however, of making the semi-finals for a sixth successive season, and dabblebet offer them at 10/3 (4.33) to qualify for the next round. On the night, the visitors are priced at 7/4 (2.75) to win while Madrid can be backed at 11/8 (2.38) and the draw is offered at 5/2 (3.50)

With this being the most played fixture in the history of the combined European Cup and Champions League, there are plenty of recent meetings for us to consider. Indeed, in recent years Real Madrid have certainly had the upper hand, and including last week's first leg victory, the La Liga giants have won their last four matches against the Bavarians.

Madrid have also scored in their last 54 matches in all competitions and must be fancied to do so again on Tuesday night, although with just one clean sheet in their last 12 games, the defending champions are likely to concede as well.

Both teams to score is offered at 4/11 (1.36) while over 2.5 goals can be backed at 4/9 (1.44) and it is hard to envisage a low scoring game. For higher odds, backing over 1.5 goals in the first half at 21/20 (2.05) should appeal and looks like being an intelligent way of backing a high scoring game.

The visitors know they need to score twice, while hosts Madrid will be expected to take the game to Bayern. This selection comfortably paid out in the last round at the Bernabeu against Napoli, as well as in last year's quarter final game in the stadium against Wolfsburg and should have a great chance of doing so once more.
