Bayern have real chance of ending the season on a high

Bayern have reached the semi-final stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2020. They will come up against Real Madrid in the semi-final. With due respect to the record Champions League winners, Bayern will be relieved that they will not face Manchester City in the next round. The Spanish club is a quality opposition, but things could have been worse with Manchester City as it happened last season.

Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund will take on Paris Saint-Germain in the second semi-final. Tuchel has the experience of taking teams to the Champions League final. With the squad morale high after the win against Arsenal, Bayern certainly have a chance to end a disappointing season on a winning note. A Champions League win will also help Tuchel to look back at his time in Munich fondly instead of grimacing over the disappointments of the last 12 months.
