Bayern Munich take on Atletico Madrid in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semifinals this week and the German giants will be looking to overturn their 1-0 deficit from the first leg.

Atletico Madrid managed to shut out the German champions completely at Vicente Calderon last week and Guardiola’s men were comfortably beaten.

The Bavarians will be hoping that their home support can play a key role in the second leg and they will be able to maintain their home record against the La Liga outfit at the Allianz Arena this week.
