It's power vs. power as Bayern Munich takes on Real Madrid in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinal matchup (2:45 p.m., Fox Soccer Channel).
For Bayern Munich, maintaining their blistering home form is crucial if they want to entertain thoughts of returning to Allianz Arena for next month's final and become the first team to play for a European cup title at its home stadium since Roma did in 1983. Arjen Robben will look to make that happen by striking against his former club, for whom he played from 2007-2009.
According to statistics outfit Opta, Real Madrid is 0-8-1 all-time in European competitions in Munich, but Cristiano Ronaldo & Co. will look to leave that past behind and continue their impressive run through the tournament. A result on the road would see the club seize control ahead of next week's return leg in Madrid and put manager Jose Mourinho a step closer to another UCL final appearance.
