Real Madrid vs Bayern: Another heavyweight clash for Zidane'

Real Madrid certainly haven't had it easy in the Champions League so far this season. Drawn sbobet789 alongside Borussia Dortmund and Spurs in the group stage, the defending double champions were paired with Paris Saint-Germain, tournament favourites for many, in the round of 16. In the quarter finals, Real saw off another European superpower in Juventus. The trend continued with Friday's semi final draw.Zinedine Zidane's side will have to overcome Bayern Munich to make their fourth Champions League final in five years, with Real Madrid aiming to become the first side to ever retain the famous old trophy three seasons in succession. History is on the line and so it's fitting that two clubs of such heritage will clash on such a stage. As things stand, this is the ultimate European tie. The marquee match. Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are the heaviest of the heavyweights left in this season's Champions League. If ever there was a match fitting for this stage of European football's premier club competition, this was it. These two clubs epitomise the clout of the Champions League.Some may point out that the ultimate European tie, at present, would see Barcelona and Real Madrid face each other, given the two teams' Champions League record over the past decade or so. However, can a truly European tie ever be between two teams from the same country? Sure, El Clasico might be the most watched football fixture on the planet, but does it really resonate around Europe like a Champions League latter round clash between a Spanish side and a German side, or an Italian side and an English side? This particular semi final clash will capture the imagination. Both clubs revel in their reputation as the predominant force in their respective homeland - they call Bayern Munich 'FC Hollywood,' while Real Madrid are dubbed the 'Galacticos.' This tie comes with a certain sparkle. It will depict European football as its very best, its most illustrious. Consider that Bayern Munich have made the semi finals of the Champions League in sbobet 789 four of the last five seasons. Take into account that the Bavarians have won the competition five times over the course of their history, with only Real Madrid (12 times) and AC Milan (seven times) boasting a better record. There aren't many sides who can come close to Real Madrid in terms of stature, in terms of history, but Bayern Munich won't be fazed by their semi final opponents.Of course, this isn't a vintage Bayern Munich side at present. They endured a difficult spell at the start of the season, sacking Carlo Ancelotti before turning to Jump Heynckes, tempting the 72-year-old out of retirement. Their team is an ageing one, with the likes of Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben well into the twilight of their careers. Even Robert Lewandowski is edging closer to his 30th birthday.But then, the same could be said of Real Madrid right now. Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, Sergio Ramos and Cristiano Ronaldo are similarly the wrong side of 30. Yet this will only feed into the spectacle served up between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in just under two weeks' time. On both sides there are legends, players who have been there and done it all before. While Liverpool and Roma have ridden the crest of a wave raised by youngsters and aspiring talents yet to reach the top of the game, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid have got this far through muscle memory. Because to crash out before the semi finals would be simply sbobet 789 unacceptable.For different reasons, there is intrigue to both semi finals, but if the essence of the Champions League, the competition that pits the best against the best, is to be found in one of the games, it's in the clash between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. The Spaniards hold the edge historically, with Real winning their last six matches against the Bavarians, but whichever way this particular game goes it will most likely define this season's Champions League.
