Real Madrid earned a very valuable 1-2 win at the Allianz Arena last week. Perhaps more important than the win itself was the fact that Los Blancos scored two away goals in a very tough stadium, and this is something quite crucial in every Champions League tie due to the importance of away goals in the European competition.

Zidane's men will be playing the semifinals if they get any home win or any draw tonight (20:45 CET). A 0-1 home loss would be enough as well.

Real Madrid goes through with:

  • A win: No matter how many goals are scored.
  • A draw: No matter how many goals are scored.
  • A 0-1 home loss.

Overtime will be played if:

  • The match ends 1-2 after 90 minutes.

Bayern Munich goes through with:

  • Any one-goal win if they score three or more away goals (2-3, 3-4, 4-5 etc).
  • Any two-goal win: 0-2, 1-3, 2-4
  • Bigger wins: (0-3, 1-4...)
