Why Bet on Real Madrid?

Real Madrid played exceptionally well in the first leg of the semifinals in Germany and came very close to springing a major surprise. However, they couldn’t contain the Bavarians’ onslaught and conceded a 2-2 draw.

Likewise, it is worth mentioning that Los Blancos had several clear scoring chances that they were unable to take advantage of. Vinicius had a masterful game on behalf of the Merengues, as he scored both goals for the team, the second of which was the most important, as it was in the 83′ minute and, at that moment, Bayern was ahead 2-1 on the scoreboard.

Real Madrid has overcome this type of two-legged playoffs many times after drawing the first leg. An example of this was the quarterfinal series against Manchester City, where they drew 3-3 in Spain and then beat the Citizens on penalties at the Etihad Stadium.

There is no doubt that Madrid has everything in its hands to win this home game and thus be one step closer to winning a new Champions League trophy.

Why Bet on Bayern?

On the other hand, we have Bayern Munich, one of the best teams in European soccer that, for the first time in many years, is not on the throne of its home league, the German Bundesliga.

The Bavarians lost the title race to Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga, so the only important trophy they can compete for is this one. However, getting it will be complicated, taking into account that they will have to get a positive result in Madrid.

Bayern was dominated by Real Madrid in the first 45 minutes of the first leg at the Allianz Arena. However, at the start of the second half, the team reacted in the best possible way and, in just 4 minutes (53′ and 57′), Leroy Sané and Harry Kane turned the score around to put the team ahead 2-1.

However, they could not hold the scoreboard until the end and committed a foul inside the area that was later converted into a goal by Vinicius through the penalty.

Now, the Bavarians have the complicated task of visiting Real Madrid, who, as we know, are very difficult to beat when they play at home.

Final Betting Analysis: Real Madrid vs. Bayern

This match has been played 19 times in the history of European soccer, and in this period, Real Madrid slightly dominates the series with nine victories. Bayern, on the other hand, accumulated seven wins, while three games ended with draws.

As we mentioned, the first leg of these Champions League semifinals ended with a 2-2 draw.
