The emotions of the Champions League reach their critical stage, as the four best teams of the tournament will face each other in a round-robin match to determine the two protagonists of the Grand Final.

The semi-finalists are Real Madrid, Bayern, Dortmund, and PSG. As we can see, the big favorite to win this edition of the Champions League is Real Madrid. However, the Bavarians have what it takes to leave them on the road.

On the other hand, PSG will try to give a blow to Dortmund in search of their first major international trophy in their history. It is no secret that PSG is inspired after beating Barça in the quarterfinals, but we are well aware of the German team’s claw.

Why Bet on Bayern Munich?

Bayern Munich have nothing else to play for but this Champions League. At the local level, in the Bundesliga, they lost to the all-powerful Bayer Leverkusen a couple of weeks ago. As a result, all the team’s efforts are on this clash against Real Madrid.

Bayern are coming from an attractive series against Arsenal, where they beat them in the second leg in Germany. The Gunners were able to equalize at home, but on their visit to the Allianz Arena, they were contained and ended up losing 1-0. 

Now, the Bavarians will try to play a perfect game to hurt Madrid in this first leg at home and thus have a chance to qualify for the Champions League semifinals.

Why Bet on Real Madrid?

Real Madrid is undoubtedly the favorite to advance to the Grand Final of this Champions League and, above all, to win it. After eliminating Manchester City, Los Merengues are confident and in high spirits, so they should be protagonists in this match against the always-powerful Bayern Munich.

In addition, there is also the fact that Madrid beat Barça in the Clasico a week ago, which also fuels their momentum and, above all, their confidence ahead of this match against Bayern.

Likewise, the Blanco team does not want the ghosts of the past to come back, as they fell in the semifinals of the last edition. Now, with Vinicius, Bellingham, and Rodrygo at their best, they will try to beat the Germans and qualify for the Grand Final.

Final Betting Analysis: Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid

In the 18 previous matches between these two teams, we have Real Madrid slightly dominating the series with nine wins. Bayern have seven triumphs, while two games have ended in draws.

At Gambyl Exchange, there is a Moneyline that favors Real Madrid at 2.50, while Bayern Munich starts at 2.969.

Bayern is not at its best but sustained itself in this competition, although majorly against weak rivals. In the group phase, they faced a poor Manchester United in the shambles, along with secondary teams from third-rated leagues. In the Round of 16, they faced a weak Lazio (that still managed to surprise them at home), and later, they encountered Arsenal in a low mood, besides being a team they have historically dominated.

Now, in the semifinals, it won’t be the case. Either against Manchester City or Real Madrid, let’s be sincere, this Bayern would have been the underdog. Individually speaking, they have what it takes to beat the Casa Blanca, but the visitors will take the best out of a team that has been shaky on defense all season. We’ll go for a 1-2 victory for the Merengues.

Look for a win for Real Madrid. If you put $100 at 2.50, you’ll see a $150 win with a total payout of $250.
