After losing 2-1 to Real Madrid at home in the Allianz Arena, Bayern Munich knew that their trip to the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu was going to be even more difficult. That scoreline means that Bayern need to put at least two goals past Keylor Navas in Madrid to even have a shot at advancing to the Semifinals.

When you lose and concede twice at home in the knockout stage, you’re really putting yourself in a difficult situation in the return leg. Bayern’s opportunities to advance are drastically reduced, but there’s still more than enough opportunity for the Bavarians to figure things out.

Take a look at our handy chart to figure out what scorelines Bayern need to muster on Tuesday to advance.

As you can see, there are more opportunities for Madrid to eliminate Bayern, but you can never count out Bayern.

The only question that remains is: Can they do it?
