Real Madrid VS Bayern Munich Preview

After 20 matches in a row, Real Madrid is still without a loss. They celebrated the title this weekend, beating Cadiz, 3-0, making a superb intro for this event. Regarding the one in Munich, we saw them laying back and waiting for the chance to strike from the counterattack, which eventually happened in the end. 

The champions of Spain have been undefeated at home since the season began. Only four teams managed to avoid a loss at Bernabeu, with Los Blancos dispatching other victims by at least two hits in their net. 

In their last four matches at home, Ancelotti’s side have displayed their offensive talent in the best possible way. They would score 12 goals and the rivals were pretty respectable names like Barcelona, Manchester City, or Athletic Bilbao.

Bayern played in Stuttgart this weekend, and that game was of little importance to Tuchel and his team. They were all focused on this one. So a 3-1 loss wasn’t very painful for them, nor the fans. The previous away games have been quite productive, with both teams scoring over 3.5 goals in six straight and Bayern conceding at least two goals in each match. This clearly exposes their defensive vulnerabilities.

The team’s defense appears to struggle when under pressure, which has been a consistent issue for Tuchel since he took over the head coaching position. What is the reason for that, we can’t tell, but this is Bayern’s biggest weakness and definitely the biggest cause for their failed title run.

Real Madrid VS Bayern Munich Head to Head

The inaugural match resulted in a thrilling 2-2 draw, with both teams having their ups and downs during 90 minutes. Prior to this battle, Real and Bayern have faced off in a total of 26 games, with the Spaniards emerging victorious in 12 of them. Bayern closely follows with 11 wins, while three matches ended in a draw. Their last encounter in the 2018 semifinals saw Real securing a 2-2 draw at home and a 1-2 win in Munich to advance to the next round.

Real Madrid VS Bayern Munich Predictions

Los Blancos are extremely confident at Bernabeu, which is one of the few sports grounds in the world with such an invincibility aura. It’s pretty much the main reason why we pick Real to win, and alsodue to Bayern’s struggles away from Munich. They aren’t confident even in the Bundesliga, let alone the international stage. So, this is why we pick Real to triumph and to advance to another finals.
