What will tonight's result be?

Josep Guardiola (FC Bayern München)Josep Guardiola, Bayern coach: I'm always very happy to play a Champions League semi-final and come to Madrid with a team like Bayern. We need to play well and get a result. Madrid are always special, with this coach or another, with these players or with others. They are the toughest of opponents who are always lurking in the semi-finals.
Paul Bryan, (UEFAComPaulB), Santiago Bernabéu: Bayern trained across the city at Rayo Vallecano de Madrid’s stadium this morning. “A sunny day, good atmosphere and a lot of concentration,” read a tweet from the club during the session.

Bale has recovered from the flu for tonight's match, but Cristiano Ronaldo, out with knee and hamstring problems since 2 April, was set to undergo a fitness test today. "If he is well he'll play, but if there is a risk of a relapse he won't," said Ancelotti.
