Matters are delicately poised between Real Madrid and Bayern Munich, who face each other again on Tuesday evening in a bid to see who is most deserving of a place in this season's Champions League final.

In their semi-final first leg, it was Los Merengues who managed to claim an advantage in the fixture, with Karim Benzema's 19th-minute strike proving decisive in giving Carlo Ancelotti's men a 1-0 lead.

However, that could change all too swiftly back at the Allianz Arena, and we've got all the essential viewing information, along with some second-leg context, leading up to what promises to be a titanic collision of European powers.

Form Guide & Stats

Even though their machine at one time seemed so immune to the ails of normal folk, a sorrier streak in form of late has shown that Bayern Munich are human after all.

After sealing the Bundesliga title in record time this term, Pep Guardiola's side have been through something of a lull, winning just four of their last nine matches across all competitions.

It is worth noting, however, that the most recent of those outings was a 5-2 comeback win over Werder Bremen this weekend, giving the squad some cause to be upbeat about their upcoming examination. WhoScored.com show just how dominant the Bavarians were in their mauling:

Real are a team in fine attacking form, too, after doing away with Osasuna 4-0 on Saturday, as confirmed by beIN Sport's Kay Murray:

That victory included two goals from Cristiano Ronaldo, who though many might have expected to be rested for the Bayern encounter, looks as eager as ever to play. This marked the fifth time in their last seven matches that Ancelotti's side have scored three goals or more.

ESPN FC says has sent a warning shot to Guardiola, too, warning him that Ronaldo, along with Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema, will all be part of an attacking approach on Tuesday:

Having done tremendously well to keep a clean sheet last week, one of Real's priorities will now lie in grabbing a vital away goal, which is within reach considering they have the best away attack in La Liga, netting an average of 2.35 goals per game.

In fact, Los Blancos are yet to fail in scoring in any league away fixture this season, showing that Ancelotti's men are no shrinking violets when it comes to flourishing in foreign territory.
