WATCH: “He is the best center forward since Marco Van Basten”

The Champions League semi finals kick off tonight, with Real Madrid heading to Turin to face Juventus before Pep Guardiola takes his Bayern Munich side to Barcelona tomorrow.

The final four sees 4 of Europe’s giants face off in what should be footballing feast but who will head to Berlin on June 6th?

Real Madrid will be looking to retain their crown, the first team in the modern era to do so, but will first have to get past a resolute Juventus (who become a lot more dynamic when Pogba enters the mix) and if they over come the Turin giants will face with rivals Barcelona or Bayern Munich.

Barcelona have been irresistible with a front trio of Messi, Suarez & Neymar putting teams to the sword but how will they fare against former manager Pep Guardiola when they face his imperious but injury hit Bayern? In the last round Bayern showed frailties but in the second leg of their tie against Porto swept the Portuguese side away with ease.

Renowned journalist Paddy Barclay claims that in Robert Lewandowski Bayern have the best center forward since Marco Van Basten, and when you pair him with the likes of Thomas Muller and Bayern’s other attacking talent, their front line is as formidable as Barca’s so can they match or even better the Spanish side?

The 4 semi final games will all prove entertaining, so enjoy our expert’s analysis and picks before the first legs kick off.
