Bayern Munich have a superb home record

One of the biggest games of this year’s Champions League will see two European giants, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, face off in the quarter-final. 

Both teams go into the first leg at the Allianz Arena, full of confidence with the two clubs leading in their respective leagues. Madrid defeated Italian club Napoli, 6-3 on aggregate in the Round of 16 match, while Bayern humiliated Arsenal in both legs, winning 10-2 on aggregate.

There can really be only one choice in any combined XI in world football, currently. Manuel Neuer is still considered one of the best in the business and is a far better choice over his counterpart in the Real Madrid goal, Keylor Navas.

Bayern fans would have been anxious and worried at the news of the German No. 1’s injury, but Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that Neuer will be in goal and allayed any fears of his injury.


The German goalkeeper is supremely important to his side with his commanding presence in the Bayern goal and supreme reflexes. In his seven appearances in the Champions League this season, Neuer has kept two clean sheets and has conceded only five goals in this Champions League campaign.
