Reasons Why Champions League Odds are Favoring Real Madrid

Real Madrid is favored to win the UCL semifinal rematch with Bayern Munich, although Los Blancos aren’t seen as odds-on favorites. The reason isn’t that the boys from the Spanish capital aren’t great; it’s just that the visitors from Munich are also fantastic.

But Real Madrid’s players have every right to feel confident about their chances on May 8. First of all, they’ve been brilliant lately, winning most of their games not only in the UEFA Champions League but also in Spanish La Liga, where they’re very close to securing the title.

Another reason to feel good ahead of the clash with Bayern Munich is that the second leg of the semifinal is played at Santiago Bernabeu. Real Madrid’s home venue is the place where Los Blancos always tend to show up.

Since the start of the 2023-24 campaign, we saw them beat a number of heavyweights at home, including Barcelona (twice), Napoli, and so on.

Bayern Munich Going All-In on the Champions League

After 11 years, Bayern Munich is o longer the champion of the German Bundesliga. Whatever happens by the end of the season, Bayern will not be able to leapfrog Bayer Leverkusen to the No. 1 spot in the Bundesliga. At the same time, it’s almost impossible for Bayern to drop below the No. 2 position in the standings.

What this basically means is that Thomas Tuchel’s men don’t have to stress much about the domestic league. Instead, they can turn their focus to the UEFA Champions League. In fact, they need to give all in their power to get to the final.

The reason is that the Champions League is the only competition they can win this year. And it would be such a shame for such a great team to end the season empty-handed. The thing is that Bayern has so many amazing players on the roster, with practically two elite players (or more!) for every position on the field.

Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich Prediction

The first game ended in a 2-2 draw, who will win Game 2 of the Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich UCL semifinal? We think no one will do it in the regular 90 minutes. Our prediction is that we’ll witness another tie, with the UCL finalist being decided by penalties.

And which team will win the penalty lottery? It’s really a coin toss, but if we really had to pick one, we’d go with Bayern.
