Bellingham’s Clasico-winning goal to virtually seal LaLiga glory for Madrid was his 21st to sit alongside 10 assists in 35 matches.

1 hour before kickoff: And here’s how the hosts line up. Thomas Muller, who knows these occasions like the back of his hand, is into the starting XI as Raphael Guerreiro drops to the bench.

1 hr 20 mins before kickoff: Ancelotti is gunning for European title number five, having triumphed in 2002/03 and 2006/07 with AC Milan before masterminding Madrid’s runs to glory in 2013/14 and 2021/22. In between those latter successes, he had a spell in charge of Bayern. That yielded the Bundesliga title in 2016/17 but he exited the Champions League against Madrid in the quarterfinals and a 3-0 group-stage defeat to another former club, Paris Saint-Germain, led to his dismissal.

1 hr 40 mins before kickoff: As is his wont on these occasions, Carlo Ancelotti has named his starting XI nice and early. Club captain Nacho partners Antonio Rudiger at centre-back as he did in the quarterfinal second leg against Manchester City. That frees up Aurelien Tchouameni to start in midfield. Lucas Vazquez replaces the suspended Dani Carvajal at right-back as expected.

2 hours before kickoff: Hello and welcome to a mouth-watering UEFA Champions League semifinal between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. These teams have 20 European titles between them and this is their 27th meeting on this rarified stage.
