It’s here. Our 4th straight semi-final and we find ourselves up against the team that I’ve always feared the most in European competition. There’s plenty of baggage with FC Hollywood, and while this is a team game, great individual performances will go a long way towards giving us the good result we need to make a long overdue appearance in the final.

I’ve written a short slideshow piece about 5 of the key individual battles to watch out for in the 1st leg, check it out here: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2037366-five-key-clashes-to-look-out-for-in-the-1st-leg-of-real-madrid-vs-bayern-munich

Don’t forget to share your post-match comments, observations and questions for the next episode of the Merengue Bites podcast. There will surely be a lot of talking points after the 1st leg, and we’d love to hear your thoughts!

Hala Madrid!!!
