Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid: What time does it start, what TV channel is it on and where can I watch it?
A look ahead to the Champions League quarter-final clash at the Allianz Arena
Two giants of Europe meet on Wednesday night as Bayern Munich host Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The two teams last met in the 2013/14 semi-finals, from which Real emerged triumphant, but there’s very little to separate the sides this time round.
- Bayern Munich and Real Madrid form one of the Champions League’s richest and most intense historical rivalries
- They are reigning European champions and Spanish league leaders, but are Real Madrid actually any good?
- Team news: TBC
What time is it?
Kick-off at the Allianz Arena is 19.45 BST.
Where can I watch it?
BT Sport 3 will be broadcasting the game. Coverage starts at 19.00
It’s a big game for…
Thomas Muller. With Robert Lewandowski out of tonight’s game, the responsibility of leading Bayern’s front line could now fall to Thomas Muller. The forward has not featured in the side’s last two games but bagged two in their 6-0 rout of FC Augsburg at the start of the month. Muller may lack the athleticism and grace of Lewandowski, but the German certainly has the ability to make a difference this evening if picked to start.
Bayern were humiliated in their own back yard? Madrid fired four past the Germans, courtesy of a brace apiece from Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo, to book their place in the 2014 Champions League final.
