Bayern Munich, Real Madrid ready for another Champions League meeting

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid will encounter familiar UEFA Champions League opponents -- each other -- when they meet in their quarterfinal tie at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

The two clubs will go head to head for the 23rd time, the most ever in UEFA competitions, though they have not faced each other since Madrid's 5-0 aggregate victory in the 2013-14 semifinals.

The Blancos enter as just one of two teams -- the other being Juventus -- who have not lost in the Champions League this season. They advanced to the quarterfinals for the seventh consecutive year by defeating Napoli in the round of 16.

Karim Benzema, who netted in the first leg against Napoli, is Madrid's top scorer with five Champions League goals this season. The France international currently sits in fifth place in the all-time Champions League scoring chart -- though his 51 goals rank well behind teammate Cristiano Ronaldo, who leads the way on 95.

Karim Benzema has led a balanced Champions League attack for Real Madrid.

Bayern, making their record 16th appearance in the quarterfinals, advanced after a 10-2 aggregate victory against Arsenal.

Leading their attack is Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 38 goals in all competitions and now has 15 in his last 11 games. The Poland international, who scored in both legs of the round-of-16 victory, has seven of his club's 24 Champions League goals.

Bayern Munich has a 64 percent chance of winning the first leg against Real Madrid, according to FiveThirtyEight.com's Soccer Power Index (SPI).

Midfielder Toni Kroos, who left Bayern for Real in July 2014, will be making his first appearance against his former club. Kroos appeared in 205 games for Bayern in all competitions dating to the start of the 2007-08 season and, since his transfer, has appeared in 147 games for Madrid.

The second leg of the quarterfinal tie will be held at the Bernabeu on April 18.
