Boateng shakes off injury to start for Bayern vs Sevilla

Vincenzo Montella has urged Sevilla to play with patience against Bayern Munich as they look to overturn a first-leg deficit and reach the Champions League semi-finals.

And Dutchman Robben, who was rested for the first leg, has spoken of his love for the European competition that he won with Bayern in 2013.

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.

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


Having wrapped up the league title, Bayern will now set their sights on the Champions League and DFB Pokal.

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

Both teams to score is priced at 4/5 (1.80), but more appealing in backing goals at both ends and over 2.5 goals at 20/21 (1.95) - the winning selection in the first leg. 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.

Good evening! Welcome to the Live Updates of Bayern Munich Vs Sevilla.


Sevilla have struggled in La Liga lately, dropping to seventh in the table after losing 4-0 to Celta de Vigo on Saturday.

Bayern though has been formidable at Allianz Arena, demolishing Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund by 6-0 in their last two home games.

BARCELONA are out of the Champions League after surrendering a three-goal lead away at Roma tonight - but which Barca men are most to blame for their shock exit?

Crucially though, several Bayern players will need to be extremely disciplined so as to be safe from suspension, with the likes of Jerome Boateng, Joshua Kimmich, Robert Lewandowski, Franck Ribery, Sebastian Rudy and Corentin Tolisso just one booking away from incurring a one-match ban.
