Jupp Heynckes's Bayern Munich will on Wednesday night clash with Sevilla at the Allianz Arena in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals match. Real Madrid won the first leg in Turin thanks to a Ronaldo masterclass by 3-0.

Bayern Munich beat Sevilla 2-1 in the first leg of the series.

Sevilla, though, have won just two of their last 14 away games in the competition (not including qualifiers) and Vincenzo Montella's side are priced at 14/1 (15.00), with the draw at 6/1 (7.00).

Should Sevilla kill off the supply line between the spaces, they might stay in the match for longer periods, giving their attacking men the chance to grab a foothold in the game. They aren't relying on Arjen Robben or Franck Ribery being brilliant, Kingsley Coman has had a very good season. Under Pep they were so dominant offensively, had so much possession, so high up the pitch.

Bayern missed out on the semi-finals a year ago, losing to Real in the quarter-finals, and in 2011 when they were knocked out in the last 16 by Inter Milan.

They did hit the bar with a Correa header on the hour and Ever Banega fired narrowly wide a little later as they upped the pressure briefly in search of the two goals they needed. Sevilla pushed Bayern Munich close but ultimately still were on the wrong side of a 2-1 scoreline.


"They are a team who press really well, but we know what we can do".

However, for the moment he insists his "personal aim is on reaching the semi-finals".

The Bavarian giants have been merciless recently at the Allianz Arena, demolishing both Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund 6-0 in their last two home games.

The tightest of the Champions League ties, the victor will join Liverpool and Roma, as well as one of Real Madrid or Juventus in the semi-final draw on Friday.

Old Trafford stands as an example and promise of what Sevilla can do, the kind of upset they can cause.
