Defending Champions Real Madrid are eyeing a third consecutive spot in the final of the UEFA Champions League as they face Bayern Munich in the second leg of the semi-final on Tuesday.

Real Madrid who has won the tournament for two years in a row, became the first team ever in the history of the competition to defend their title when they did in 2017.

Coach Zinedine Zidane is yet again on the brink of history as he is looking to guide his team to a hat-trick of title and reaffirming their stance as the most successful club in the UCL history.

"We earned a lot of extra credit for winning the match," Zidane said. "But we cannot make the same mistakes again and I think on Tuesday we'll have to go into the match with more determination than we've ever had before."

Bayern Munich, on the other hand, can’t be counted out of the competition just yet. The German giants will be eyeing a spot in final.

In the quarter-final, Juventus showed a gameplan to battle against Real, and it almost paid off. Bayern will be looking to emulate the same and more efficiently to prevent Madrid from entering the competition for the third time in a row.
