Bayern Munich cut Bundesliga celebrations short to focus on Sevilla

11 Апреля 2018

That result was yet another blow to the team's European hopes, and they now sit behind both Villarreal and local rivals Real Betis in the La Liga standings.

ARJEN ROBBEN claims he "lives for Champions League nights" with Bayern Munich looking to book a semi-final spot against Sevilla tonight.

"A 2-1 win away from home is always great, but it's not the same as 5-0 against Besiktas", said Robben, referring to their first-leg win in the last 16.

Of all the match-ups in the Champions League quarterfinal round, Bayern Munich vs. Sevilla remains the most up in the air about who will triumph and proceed to the semifinals.

"They did very well to win in Manchester [against United] and we know we have to perform at our best". It was the team's second straight loss, including the first leg Champions League defeat versus Bayern, after they held Barcelona to a 2-2 draw at the end of March.

The Bundesliga champions, who wrapped up their domestic title on Saturday, go into the clash in charge of the tie having won 2-1 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Alaba last played in the 6-0 hammering of Borussia Dortmund on March 31, while Vidal had to be replaced after 36 minutes in Seville, and the return leg comes slightly too early for both.

Sevilla, without a win in four games since shocking Manchester United, welcome Argentina midfielder Ever Banega back from suspension.

Germany defender Jerome Boateng, 29, is fit for Bayern despite bruising a foot in Saturday's 4-1 win at Augsburg, which sealed a sixth successive Bundesliga title.

With one eye on a potential semi-final, Bayern's players must be careful. With their star forward Robert Lewandowski rested during that match he'll be hungry to improve upon his already impressive 26 goal haul this season with perhaps a few more during Wednesday's match.

He said: "It's the pinnacle to play at this level and really special".

Under Heynckes' successor Pep Guardiola, Bayern were knocked out at the semi-final stage in each of his three seasons - every time at the hands of Spanish opposition.

Sevilla are winless in four games since winning at Old Trafford.
