Why you should back Bayern Munich

The Bavarians' defensive play has been stellar of late during their home unbeaten streak in the Champions League, as the club has posted three straight clean sheets in Munich. The latest was a 1-0 triumph over Arsenal on Apr. 17 in which midfielder Joshua Kimmich converted in the 63rd minute to help Bayern reach the semifinals for the first time since their 2019-20 championship season. The Bavarians are led offensively by striker Harry Kane, who is second in the UCL with seven goals and tied for eighth with three assists.

Since mid-December, the 30-year-old Kane has recorded 20 goals in 22 contests across all competitions, never going more than two consecutive matches without a goal during that span. He was kept off the scoresheet in the 1-0 win against Arsenal but converted in the first leg of that quarterfinal tie and registered his second brace of the UCL season in his previous outing versus Lazio. Kane also had a brace in his last outing, a 2-1 triumph in domestic league play over Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Real Madrid

Los Blancos enter Tuesday with an 18-game unbeaten streak across all competitions during which they have recorded 12 wins and six draws. Real Madrid also have gone 10 straight Champions League matches without a loss, a run that is one game shy of matching the club record set in 2016-17. Facing Bayern in the knockout phase of the competition has been a good thing for Los Blancos of late, as they have gone on to win the title after defeating the Bavarians in their previous three meetings.

Rodrygo is tied for fifth in the UCL with five goals, the same amount he recorded in the competition in each of the last two campaigns. The 23-year-old Brazilian winger enjoyed a three-game scoring streak during the group stage before converting in each leg of the quarterfinal tie against Manchester City. English midfielder Jude Bellingham has netted four goals and is tied with teammate Vinicius Junior and four other players for second in the competition with four assists.See which team to pick here.
