Atletico Madrid will host Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich in the Champions League on 27 April 2016.
Atletico Madrid prepare to upset the odds when they host Bayern Munich at Vicente Calderon in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal fixture on Wednesday night. Atletico are in their third Champions League semis in three years, as in 2013/14 they knocked out Chelsea at the same stage to go into the final and eventually lose the title against arch rivals Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich are in the fifth consecutive semis and have reached the final twice and went on to win their last title in 2012/13 by beating domestic rivals Borussia Dortmund. Bayern Munich won 7, drawn 2 and lost 1 from their 10 matches in this season’s Champions League. They have failed to win their last two away matches in the competition, with draws against Juventus and Benfica. Also they have only win 2 of their 5 away games in the competition this season.
