Bayern Munich are defending champions. Real Madrid are the winningest side in Champions League history. While there's a case for Atletico Madrid being the most complete side left in the competition, these two are the most purely talented. They're also, for most, the headliners, and a Bayern v. Madrid matchup would have been the pick of many for the finals next month. Instead, the two sides face off over 180 minutes for the honour of heading to Lisbon, and Bayern getting the second leg at home next week should make the Germans slight favourites. As usual, the game will kick off at 7:45PM BST/2:45PM EST.
