Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid, UEFA Champions League Semi-Final 2nd Leg: Open Thread

bayern munich real madrid2 Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid, UEFA Champions League Semi Final 2nd Leg: Open Thread

You could definitely argue that today’s UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid is the biggest match of the season. Current Champions League title holders Bayern Munich needs to bounce back from a 0-1 aggregate score to beat one of the biggest clubs in the world, Real Madrid. This promises to be a thrilling encounter with a lot of end-to-end action.

For viewers in the United States, today’s match begins at 2pm ET on FOX Sports 1 with pre-match analysis featuring commentators Gus Johnson and Eric Wynalda as well as studio host Rob Stone and studio pundits Warren Barton, Brian McBride and Mikael Silvestre.

Here is today’s TV/Internet schedule for matches being shown in the US:

Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid, 2:45pm, FOX Sports 1 and FOX Soccer 2Go

Programming note: The biggest soccer match of the year looks to be pre-empted due to a NBA press conference that FOX Sports 1 has decided to show beginning at 2pm ET. As a result, the coverage of the game will be shown in SD on FOX Sports 2, and will most probably switch back to FOX Sports 1 as soon as the basketball coverage ends.

Starting line-ups:

Bayern Munich: Neuer – Dante, Ribéry, Mandzukić, Robben, Boateng, Lahm (C), Müller, Alaba, Schweinsteiger, Kroos

Real Madrid: Casillas, Pepe, Ramos, Coentrão, Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, Alonso, Carvajal, Modric, Di María
