Real Madrid will be taking on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in what promises to be a exciting encounter in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final between the two clubs.

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes will be taking on the side whom he managed back in 1998. Back then, Real Madrid were extremely successful under his guidance and they won the Champions League title that season.

However, he will be hoping that Real Madrid do not achieve that feat this time around when they face his current club Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. If bookmakers are anything to go by, they are not providing Bayern Munich with any chance to win this match.

Real Madrid are the overwhelming favourites to overcome Bayern Munich in the first leg, which could possibly set up a El Clasico in the Champions League final at the Allianz Arena. José Mourinho already knows the way to play Bayern Munich because he has already faced them with Inter Milan in the Champions League final of 2010.

Ladbrokes and William Hill provide the best odds for Bayern Munich to win this match at 17/10. Bet Victor provides Real Madrid with the odds of 5/2 to get a draw away at Bayern Munich. Coral and Blue Square provide the best odds for Real Madrid to win the match at 7/4.

Real Madrid have the advantage in this match because they will be facing a Bayern Munich side that will come on the back of a disappointment of failing to win the title back from the clutches of Borussia Dortmund. This after the latter almost secured the title after opening a huge advantage at the top of the table. Hence, they are likely to focus their entire attention on the Champions League this season especially given that the final is at the Allianz Arena.
