Real Madrid wins the first leg 2-1 beating Bayern Munich at their place. Superb finishes from Marcelo and Marco Asensio overhauled the advantage Joshua Kimmich had given Bayern Munich, who missed a host of chances, and Jupp Heynckes' side have it all to do if they are to conduct a second-leg turnaround. Joshua Kimmich opened the scoring for the home side just before the half-hour mark, but a defensive lapse on the stroke of half-time, coupled with a fine strike from Real Madrid's Marcelo, pulled the La Liga giants level heading into the break.

Marco Asensio netted the winner just before the hour mark after a Rafinha turnover and despite a host of late chances, the Bundesliga champions were unable to find away to comeback and tie the game. Bayern couldn't find to even up the score, and know they must score at least twice at the Bernabeu on Tuesday to stand a chance of reaching the final for the first time since 2012-13.

Next Game: Tuesday, May 1, 2018 at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium
