Our match prediction:
Die Wolfe stunned the favoured La Liga giants with a smashing 2-0 victory in the Champions League quarter finals. Ricardo Rodriguez and Maximilian Arnold finished the job within twenty five minutes, and even though Zinedine Zidane’s charges pushed for an away goal, Diego Benaglio stood tall throughout the match. This morale boosting victory served as a perfect tonic for the defeat against Leverkusen in the previous Bundesliga round, and now Dieter Hecking’s men await die Nullfunfer in high spirits. Coface Arena outfit hope for the repetition of the success from the reverse fixture, but their previous two visits to Volkswagen Arena ended in a disaster, losing both of them with an identical result (3-0). Even though the O-fives have been blowing hot and cold on their travels of late, they did manage to snatch all three points at the hands of Bayern recently and, bearing in mind Schmidt’s men still have a realistic possibility for a champions League spot next season, we are up for a heavy battle. A close victory for the hosts is predicted in the forthcoming football match.
