Everyone will be hoping for goals and excitement this time around as well, similar to these five previous encounters.
#1 Champions League semi-final 2013/14: Bayern Munich 0 – 4 Real Madrid
How could anyone forget? Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid went into the second leg with a 1-0 lead rand beat Bayern Munich 4-0. It was unreal to think Pep Guardiola’s side would fail to score at home and concede four in a semi-final, but Real Madrid were that good on the night.
Sergio Ramos, the man who always seems to rise to the occasion, did it again in 2014, as his two headers put Madrid 2-0 up in 20 minutes. This meant Bayern Munich needed four goals to go through to the final.
Madrid then continued to dish out the punishment as they took a 3-0 lead through Ronaldo in the 34th minute, all but ending the tie for the German champions.
Finally, to end in style, Ronaldo cleverly rolled the ball underneath the wall directly from a free-kick in the 89th minute, giving Bayern Munich their heaviest defeat in Europe to date, a 4-0 loss.
