Bayern vs. Real Madrid instant analysis

If you can't get even a little bit excited about this match-up, you need to check your pulse. These two have played out some thrilling head-to-heads in this competition over the years, from their first meeting in 1976 (when Gerd Muller and Franz Beckenbauer helped the Germans to a 3-1 aggregate semi-final win) to the 2006/07 knockouts, when they drew 4-4 and Bayern went through on away goals. In the 1999/2001 season, they played one another four times, scoring 16 goals between them -- two from Nicholas Anelka saw Real through to the final, where they beat Valencia.
