Real Madrid v Athletic Club - La Liga

Huge game for Real Madrid as they try to advance to what would be their third straight Champions League Final. Los Blancos hold a solid 1-2 lead against Bayern, which means that the German side would need a 0-2 or 2-3 wins to beat Real Madrid on aggregate.

Dani Carvajal is out for Real Madrid but luckily enough for Zinedine Zidane and the coaching staff it looks like Nacho will be back with the team, so Lucas Vazquez won’t need to play as a right-back.

Real Madrid: Navas; Nacho, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Modrić, Kroos, Casemiro; Lucas, Benzema, Ronaldo

Out: Carvajal (hamstring), Isco (shoulder)

Doubtful: Nacho (thigh)

Bayern: Ulrich; Kimmich, Hummels, Süle, Alaba; Martínez, Thiago, James, Müller, Ribéry; Lewandowski

Out: Neuer (metatarsal), Boateng (hamstring), Vidal (knee), Robben (adductor), Coman (ankle)

Doubtful: Alaba (thigh)

Real Madrid managed to survive Bayern’s charge during the first leg but they will need to control the tempo of the game much better this night if they want to play the Final.
