Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich instant analysis

Tuesday April 24th, 2012

The Spaniards are on a high after defeating Barcelona at the weekend, all but securing this season's La Liga title. But apparently that won't stop Bayern going for another win, having edged Real 2-1 in the first leg. "Madrid have huge respect for us. They have to, after the first leg," said the Bayern Munich coach, Jupp Heynckes. ""We will have to score one or two goals, and we can do that; we have outstanding attacking players."

Mario Gomez has scored 12 goals in this competition. Cristiano Ronaldo lags behind with eight, but he has scored seven so far this month. This should be another cracker. Follow it live from 2.30 pm ET.
