Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich: Five of the most memorable matches

While there are subplots for both Bayern and Real Madrid, the entire FC panel is picking Madrid to go through to the UCL final.

Real Madrid against Bayern Munich is the most played match in UEFA competition history and, possibly, the most heated cross-border rivalry in all of European football.

Two clubs representing the north and south of the continent, and with a lot in common, have faced off 24 times over the last four decades. But the "European Clasico" has had almost as much controversy and bad feeling as its La Liga namesake.

Refereeing decisions in particular have sparked debate over the years, with Bayern currently...

In M. Night Shyamalan's "Unbreakable," a man suffering from extremely brittle bones, Elijah Price (played by Samuel L.

The last team to "three-peat" as champions of Europe, doing so 42 years ago, take on the team that is fancied to complete their own this season. It's an added layer of spice to the clash between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinal.

Not that you really need it in situations like this. European football's seascape brings together plankton and minnows, squid and sharks, but these two are bona fide whales. One or the other has been in six of the past eight Champions League...

Jupp Heynckes can say 'adios' to Spanish football when Bayern face Madrid

The Heynckes heart won't be divided -- not one iota.

But Josef, to his family, Jupp to the rest of the admiring football world, will have to ruthlessly end a love affair with Spain and Spanish football if he's to finally lower the curtain fittingly on what has been his exceedingly brilliant career.

One way or another, his career and Real Madrid's well-being have so often been intertwined that it's both poetic and mischievous of fate to pit Bayern Munich against Los Blancos, out of all the...
