Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Allianz Arena when Bayern Munich and Real Madrid face each other in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals. Bayern Munich head into Wednesday’s football game following a 4-1 win over Borussia Dortmund and Carlo Ancelotti’s men are determined to get their revenge on los Blancos for a loss in the 2013/2014 Champions League semis. Robert Lewandowski scored a brace against Borussia Dortmund and he will be the man to watch in the home team. Real Madrid set up a meeting with Bayern Munich by beating Napoli in the two-legged tie, but the mighty Bavarians are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the title holders than their previous rivals. Anyhow, both Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the first leg and a low-scoring affair appears on the cards. Taking everything into account, we predict that the two teams will share the spoils at Allianz Arena.
Highlighted Player (Robben):
Arjen Robben is a professional footballer who started his senior career at Groningen. In 2002 he joined PSV and after making 56 league appearances for the Dutch outfit, the pacey winger signed a deal with Chelsea in 2004. The Dutch ace helped the Blues win two Premier League trophies (2004/2005, 2005/2006) and he scored 15 goals in 67 league appearances for the capital club. Arjen Robben played for Real Madrid from 2007 to 2009 and he scored 11 goals in 50 appearances in La Liga. However, the club chiefs were not satisfied with his performances and they decided to sell him to Bayern Munich in 2009. Joining the Bundesliga giants was probably the best decision of his career as he has been winning titles with the German outfit year by year. Robben clinched his fifth Bundesliga trophy with Bayern Munich in the 2015/2016 season and in 2013 he scored the winning goal for the Bavarians in the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund. The Bayern Munich star was born in Bedum, Netherlands on 23 January, 1984.
Highlighted Team (Real Madrid):
Real Madrid are a Spanish football club based in Madrid. Real Madrid participate in La Liga (Primera Division) and they have won 32 domestic titles. On the other hand, los Blancos have won 11 European Cup titles and that is the main reason why they are considered the biggest football club in the world. Real Madrid play their home matches at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu and the capacity of the stadium is 84,454. Cristiano Ronaldo is the club’s most successful footballer in the 21st century and the Portuguese superstar has won two Golden Ball awards. The likes of Alfredo Di Stefano, Zinedine Zidane, Raul Gonzalez Blanco, David Beckham and Iker Casillas are star players who were part of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu outfit in the past. Real Madrid’s bitterest rivals are Barcelona, but the rivalry between local rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid is big as well. Real Madrid’s home kit is white and, as a result, the team’s nickname is los Blancos (the Whites).
