The Bundesliga champions are formidable opponents but our tipster believes the Champions League holders have been overpriced by the bookmakers

Real Madrid remain favourites to retain their Champions League title but their semi-final draw against Bayern Munich is certainly one of the tougher draws that Zinedine Zidane's side could have faced.

888Sport make Los Blancos 39/20 (2.95) to record a hat-trick of European victories in their latest outright winner odds, while their German opponents are 23/10 (3.30) to go all the way for the first time since 2013.

Latest Odds

Home advantage sees Bayern as the 26/25 (2.04) favourites for the first leg at the Allianz Arena. The draw is priced at 27/10 (3.70) while Madrid are also available at 27/10 (3.70) to take an advantage back to the Bernabeu.

Cristiano Ronaldo has netted in every game he's played in this season's tournament and the Portugal international is a 59/50 (2.18) shot to extend that record.

The shortest priced player in that market though, is Robert Lewandowksi. Bayern's frontman has six Champions eague semi-final goals to his name and the 29-year-old is 9/10 (1.90) to register in this one.

Goals and plenty of them are expected by the bookmakers. 888Sport go just 12/25 (1.45) that both teams find the net with over 2.5 goals priced at just 3/5 (1.60) by the same firm.

Team News

Arturo Vidal picked up a knee injury in training and joins Manuel Neuer and Kingsley Coman on the sidelines, whilst David Alaba has also been ruled out.

Unlike his opposite number, Zidane has a full squad to pick from ahead of the first leg.


Real Madrid have enjoyed plenty of success against Bayern in recent years. In fact, the Bundesliga side have lost their previous five Champions League matches against Los Blancos, all of which came in the knockout stages of the competition.

While Zidane's side have failed to live up to expectations domestically this term, their pedigree in Europe's premier club competition simply can't be overlooked.

Heynckes' men have had kind draws in the previous two rounds (Besiktas and Sevilla) and could be in for a rude awakening against the recent kings of the two-legged European tie who have already got the better of Juventus and PSG.

Tips and Predictions

Madrid's incredible recent record combined with their performances against Bayern mean the value lies with the visitors in some form ahead of this blockbuster clash. 888Sport are 17/10 (2.70) about the away win in the "Draw No Bet" market and that looks the best option.

This wager will see your stake returned if the match ends all square while still offering a tasty return about a win for the reigning champions.
