Four teams are fighting for two spots in the 2014/15 Champions League final. The final is played June 6th at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, Germany. Thus, there is a chance for Bayern Münich to raise the trophy at home soil, but to get the chance for it they need to eliminate the Spanish giants Barcelona. In the other semifinal Italian team Juventus will face another strong Spanish team: Last years champions Real Madrid. The semifinals are played 5-6th of May and the second leg is played 12-13th of May. Juventus and Barcelona will start at home.
Results from the quarterfinals
In two of the quarterfinals only one goal differed between the teams: Juventus scored the decisive goal against Monaco trough a penalty in the first leg while the second game ended in a goal less draw. In the Madrid derby between Atletico and Real, which was a rerun of last year’s final, Real scored the only goal of the series in the second game. The other two quarterfinals offered plenty of goals though: Bayern Münich lost the first game against Porto with 1-3 but did a strong comeback at home, winning 6-1 = 11 goals in two matches. Barcelona did no mistake against Paris SG and won two consecutive games 1-3 and 0-2.
How will the semifinals end?
The semifinals can end in some interesting scenarios, one of them being an El Clásico at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin June 6th. That might even be the most probable matchup since both Barcelona and Real Madrid look incredible strong. However, we can’t look away from Bayern’s seven goals in the quarterfinals and the fact that Juventus can play a relaxed game as underdogs, even though they haven’t really been tested in this year’s Champions League. That will change in a few days, the Italians have to be on top of their game if they are to stand a chance against Real Madrid.
