Bayern Munich reached its sixth Champions League semifinal in seven seasons with a 0-0 draw against Sevilla in the second leg of their quarterfinal on Wednesday.

Los Rojiblancos will be disappointed that they could not make home advantage count in the first leg, making this return leg a herculean task to overcome with Bayern having two vital away goals.

Die Rotten came out 2-1 victors at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last Wednesday and are nearly certain of getting another victory here at odds of (1.25) with NairaBet which will be enough to see them qualify for the semifinals at (1.03).

In the first leg, Sevilla outplayed Bayern in the first half before allowing the German side to comeback in the second half.

Sven Ulreich continues in goal for Bayern in the absence of Manuel Neuer while both Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery - who were vital in the club's 2013 Champions League triumph - start.

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. Instead it comes in the shape of Kenedy who is being linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich including other English clubs, as Sky Sports report.


Sevilla ended the game with ten men after the dismissal in stoppage time of Joaquin Correa for a rough challenge.

- Gonzalo Higuaín has been directly involved in 55 per cent of Juventus' 11 Champions League goals this season (five goals and an assist), and has scored or assisted each of their last four in the competition.

Sevilla have struggled in La Liga lately, dropping to seventh in the table after losing 4-0 to Celta de Vigo on Saturday. - Bayern Munich are now unbeaten in 20 games in all competitions this season at Allianz Arena (W17 D3) - the only side in the Top 5 European Leagues to avoid defeat at home.

"We will play with the same pride or even more".
