Line-ups: Bayern-Madrid

BBC looks to be no more as Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale are benched for Real Madrid's Champions League semi-final second leg at Bayern Munich.

Isco and Lucas Vazquez are elected to flank Cristiano Ronaldo for an otherwise-full strength Madrid, who have only Nacho Fernandez missing.

Bayern, on the other hand, are without key men David Alaba and Arturo Vidal at left-back and in midfield respectively, joining long-term casualties Manuel Neuer and Kingsley Coman on the sidelines.

However, James Rodriguez faces his parent club for the first time, having left Los Blancos for Bayern on a two-year loan last summer.

The two sides meet for a record 25th time in Europe, with Madrid controversially overcoming Bayern in the quarter-finals last season, although they had no such problems four years ago, when they beat Pep Guardiola's then-outfit 5-0 on aggregate in the last four.

The referee tonight is Dutchman Bjorn Kuipers, who officiated Los Merengues' 4-1 victory over Atletico Madrid after extra-time in the 2014 Final.
