• Bayern lost first leg in Madrid 1-0.
  • Winner will play either Real Madrid or Man City in final.
  • Bayern have won last 11 Champions League home games.

FC Bayern München will look to overturn a 1-0 deficit when they welcome Club Atletico de Madrid to the Allianz Arena in Tuesday's all-or-nothing UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg (kick-off: 20:45CEST/18:45GMT).

Saul Niguez's match-winning strike at the Estadio Vicente Calderon last week means Bayern must score to stand any chance of reaching a third Champions League final in five years and avoid the disappointment of falling to Spanish opposition in the last four for the third season running.

After winning all 11 of their home matches in the competition since losing 4-0 to Real Madrid CF in the 2013/14 semi-finals, however, Pep Guardiola's men will be quietly confident of turning the tie in front of their own fans.

Bayern will progress after 90 minutes if...

... they win by at least two clear goals.

Bayern will be eliminated after 90 minutes if...

... they draw or lose on the night.

... Atletico score an away goal and Bayern only win by a one-goal margin: 2-1, 3-2, 4-3 etc.

Bayern will be eliminated after extra-time if...

...the tie is level after 90 minutes, and both sides score goals in extra-time that keep the aggregate score level, as away goals would count double after the additional period. e.g. 1-0 Bayern after 90 minutes, 2-1 Bayern after 120 minutes.

If the scoreline is 1-0 to Bayern after extra-time...

...a penalty shoot-out will be used to decide the contest with sudden-death spot-kicks if the first five penalties do not prove decisive.

What they are saying...

Pep Guardiola (Bayern coach): "We're always in a position to score. It's our third semi-final in a row. We need a performance. We know our strengths. We'll have no excuses if we lose. There are ways to lose and win. It's difficult to play against Atleti and we've seen that. It will be very difficult.  They stay close to each other to shut down the space. But we'll try to play our own style. Every semi-final is difficult. It was a disaster against Real Madrid, and we weren't ready against Barcelona. This time we have players fit and we're well prepared for this game. If my team plays with the same aggression as Vidal did last week, then we must win."

Javi Martinez (Bayern midfielder): "We know it's tough to score against Atletico. But we have some of the best strikers in Europe. The important thing is that we have to score a goal tomorrow. We have strong players in every position. We have our fans behind us and we're confident we can win! Guardiola is our coach until July. We'll try and win the treble in his last season."

Manuel Neuer (Bayern goalkeeper): "We've gained a lot of experience from the last few years. That will help us."

Diego Simeone (Atletico coach): "Every game at this level is tough. We know how strong Bayern are as a team. We have a good team spirit and we need to build on the success we've had."

Fernando Torres (Atletico forward): "We're one of the best teams in Europe and we have to beat teams like Bayern. We enjoy our work and we enjoy every game. We have a difficult match ahead of us. We know we're a good team. As a team, we can beat anyone. Our stats say so."

Bayern memorably overturned a 4-2 aggregate deficit against Juventus in the Round of 16.
