Champions League In Focus - Bayern Munich vs Sevilla Preview

Deutschland Hamburger SV- FC Schalke 04 Bayern Munich overcome Sevilla to ease into UEFA Champions league last four

Bayern Munich are aiming to secure their place in the Champions League semi-final for the fourth time in the five years when they take on Sevilla tonight. Winning 2-1 away from home is great, but it's only half-time.

But Robben, who scored the victor in the 2013 final, is aware of what Sevilla are capable of having watched the Spanish outfit win 2-1 at Manchester United in the previous round.

The Spanish club must score at least two away goals in the Bundesliga champions' back yard to progress in the competition, a seriously tall order when you consider Bayern are unbeaten at the Allianz Arena this season.

Bayern, playing in their seventh straight Champions League quarter-final, never needed to hit top form but were in control throughout with the largely toothless Spaniards only rarely venturing into their opponents' box.

Sevilla manager Vincenzo Montella has the privilege of calling upon Ever Banega for the game against Bayern, with the Argentine having missed the first leg through suspension.

Jupp Heynckes came out of retirement in October for a fourth spell in charge of Bayern Munich.

Team news! First up Bayern! .

Sevilla have already produced one second leg shock in this year's competition, knocking Manchester United out at Old Trafford in the round of 16.

"Sevilla are in the last chance saloon and a risky team".

"We're in a good mood, we're hungry and our big goal is to reach the semi-finals". If Sevilla are going to advance to the semifinals, they are going to have to do what no team has done this season, beat Bayern inside the Allianz Arena.

The match is available in most nations through the rights holders' online platform, if they have one.

Robert Lewandowski - who has 35 goals to his name this season, was rested at the weekend. "It suits the Champions League because all the remaining sides play exceptional attacking football but offer up chances for the opposition".
