Real Madrid travel to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern and each side's respective superstar will be looking to outdo each other in the semi-finals

The two highest-scoring Champions League semi-finalists go head-to-head on Wednesday night as Bayern Munich welcome Real Madrid to the Allianz Arena.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s 13 strikes in the final four of the competition are by far the most at this stage, with Robert Lewandowski second in the list with six.

These prolific scorers have a storied history against each other and bet365 are offering a market on which forward comes out on top in the first leg.

More goals for Ronaldo

Ronaldo’s insatiable form in the Champions League this season has seen him net 15 times in the competition, and his streak of scoring in 11 consecutive games (dating back to last season’s final) is a record.

The 33-year-old also has nine goals against Bayern in his career, including a hat-trick in the semi-final last term, which is the second-most for a player against any opponent in the Champions League – behind his 10 versus Juventus.

Lewandowski to strike

However, Lewandowski is not to be forgotten, and his stunning four-goal salvo in the semi-finals for Borussia Dortmund against Real back in 2013 firmly established him as one of the best strikers in the world.

In fact, his six goals against Los Blancos are the most he has scored against any side in the Champions League, whilst all six of his semi-final strikes have come against Spanish opposition.
