Champions League semifinals match-up had been set via draw resulting to Man City versus Real Madrid and Bayern versus Atletico Madrid, according to Champions League Twitter Account.

The first leg of the semifinals will be held on April 26, where the Man City will be hosting the Real Madrid and April 27, where the Atletico Madrid will be hosting.

The second leg of the semifinals will be held on May 3 and 4 where the visiting team on the first leg will be the host.

After the semifinals have concluded, the winners will face off at Stadio San Siro, Milan on May 28.

After the crowd favorite FC Barcelona was eliminated, football fans had their own bets to be the next Champions League title holder.

Real Madrid had the goal specialist Cristiano Ronaldo, but their performance in the first leg of their quarterfinal against Wolfsburg left few doubts over their ability to defend.

However, from a previous report, they stunned the crowd with a come-from-behind the victory in the second leg led by a hat-trick by Ronaldo. Zinedine Zidane may be a rookie coach, but his familiarity with football was outstanding especially when they defeated the title holder FC Barcelona in their El Classico match-up.

Bayern Munich was the complete side still standing, having Pep Guardiola in the dugout, top players in every position and a lot of depth, but they suffered disappointing defeats at this stage in 2014 and 2015 and have conceded six goals in four knockout matches so far.

Atletico Madrid became one of the survivors when they had eliminated the FC Barcelona in the quarterfinals as reported earlier. They are considered a nightmare to play against with tactician Diego Simeone leading them. They had shown their ability to defend, but they don’t score too many.

Man City had Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva and Martin Demichelis, and they grew up a lot in their impressively cool win over PSG, but they lack experience at this level and can be chaotic in defense.

The four final team had already shown what they are capable of. Every match in the semifinals will surely be a blockbuster.
