Real Madrid predicted lineup vs Bayern Munich & team news

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid head into a mouthwatering UEFA Champions League semifinal with 20 European titles between them.

Each side overcame Premier League opposition in the form of Arsenal and Manchester City respectively to set up this clash of historical giants.

Carlo Ancelotti’s Madrid are on the cusp of being confirmed as LaLiga champions, while Bayern have endured a season of toil domestically, losing out on the Bundesliga title for the first time since 2011/12 to Xabi Alonso’s still-undefeated Bayer Leverkusen side.

Madrid and Bayern are fighting for the right to face the winner of the other semifinal between Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund in next month’s final at Wembley.

Real Madrid will be forced into one change, with Lucas Vazquez expected to cover for the suspended Dani Carvajal at right-back.

Eder Militao completed 90 minutes at the Anoeta and is an option alongside Nacho Fernandez and Aurelien Tchouameni to partner Antonio Rudiger at centre-back.

Real Madrid predicted XI (4-3-1-2 right to left): Lunin (GK) — Vazquez, Tchouameni, Rudiger, Mendy — Valverde, Kroos, Camavinga  — Bellingham — Rodrygo, Vinicius Jr.
