The tie to watch in the UEFA Champions League Semifinals is unquestionably the one featuring Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid. They are probably the two best teams left in the competition and could likely feature the coaching battle of the this year's Champions League.
Pep Guardiola and Diego Simeone will be focused on having their side ready to play against the opposition's regular gameplan. For Guardiola, he will look to counter any and all defensive measures that Simeone has planned for Bayern, while Simeone will try to outsmart Guardiola's offensive plan with a resolute defense and counterattacking plans.
A victory in Madrid isn't the end-all be-all for Bayern here. With the home leg in Munich next week, they aren't eliminated today with a loss. If Bayern can nab a goal in Madrid, it will make the job remaining in Munich all that easier.
There remains only 180 minutes between Bayern and another Champions League Final. Let's do this.
