Real Madrid visit Bayern in what will be a crucial opening leg for the Champions League Semifinals. The winner of this tie will almost surely face Liverpool in the Final given that Klopp’s side dismantled Roma this Tueday.

Sergio Ramos will be back for Madrid after missing the last European match against Juventus and defender Nacho Fernandez will be the only injured player for Los Blancos.

Bayern predicted XI: Ulreich; Kimmich, Hummels, Boateng, Alaba; Martínez, Thiago; James, Müller, Ribéry; Lewandowski

Out: Vidal (knee), Coman (ankle)

Doubtful: Neuer (foot), Tolisso (shin)

Real Madrid predicted XI: Navas; Carvajal, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Kroos, Casemiro, Modrić, Isco; Benzema, Ronaldo

Doubtful: Nacho (muscular)

It would be shocking to see goalkeeper Manuel Neuer starting but he could be back in time for the return leg which will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu. Other than that, both starting lineups seem quite predictable but whether Heynckes or Zidane will decide to make some changes or not remains to be seen.
