Bayern took the lead in last week’s semi-final first leg through Joshua Kimmich, but goals from Marcelo and Marco Asensio gave the holders a 2-1 win to take to the Spanish capital.

Jupp Heynckes’ German champions must score at least twice in the Bernabeu to stand any chance of reaching the final, and must do so against a seasoned Real side who have won the competition the last two years in a row.

However, Juventus’ 3-1 win in Madrid in the quarter-finals will hand an injury-hit Bayern squad belief that this could well be their year.

Real Madrid

Defender Nacho should be available having returned to training following injury, but play-maker Isco and full-back Dani Carvajal are doubts after sustaining problems last Wednesday in Bavaria.

Local media reports indicate winger Lucas Vazquez could be asked to deputise.

Bayern Munich

Bayern’s cause is not helped by injuries to key players Arjen Robben and Jerome Boateng.

The pair were forced off with problems during the initial meeting with Real and will be unavailable, although Javi Martinez and David Alaba, who have also had injury problems, have travelled.

Injury Concerns

Bayern were forced into multiple substitutions due to injury during the first leg, and both teams will be without several key players, according to WhoScored.com.

For Real, Isco and Dani Carvajal will not feature. The former has been a massive part of the club’s European run, but the latter might be more difficult to replace. Los Blancos are short on quality right-backs, and young talent Achraf Hakimi showed on Saturday he’s not ready for such a massive stage.

The 19-year-old was at fault for Leganes’ only goal, and after the match, manager Zinedine Zidane emphasised a slow approach is needed for the youngster, via ESPN FC’s Dermot Corrigan:

Hakimi is a top talent, but asking him to hold down the fort in a Champions League semi-final against a team like Bayern is too much. Lucas Vazquez is a more likely option, even if he has limited experience as a member of a back four.

Bayern also have major concerns, as the likes of Jerome Boateng, Arjen Robben and David Alaba are all serious doubts. Sule is expected to come into the team, and while he’s a quality option, he’ll face a tough time against Cristiano Ronaldo.

Up front, the absence of Robben and an injury to Kingsley Coman could see Thomas Muller pushed into more of a wide role.
