Bayern Munich go into Wednesday’s Champions League second leg with momentum, as Saturday’s 4-1 win versus Ausburg confirmed them as champions of Germany for a sixth straight year. Just like in their domestic league, Bayern have been untroubled so far in the knockout stages – swatting aside Besiktas 8-1 on aggregate, and coming away relatively unscathed with a 2-1 win in the first leg versus Sevilla. Despite their slow start and conceding on the 32nd minute, Bayern’s superiority eventually told – the introduction of on loan midfielder James Rodriguez said to be the deciding factor. With the league already in the bag and a DFB Pokal semi final in situ, Four time manager Jup Heynckes will have his sights set on another Domestic/European treble.
Sevilla’s season has been nothing if not entertaining. Inconsistent, frustrating and bipolar – all words that can be used to describe their patchy and somewhat confusing campaign. A lack of stability before the festive period saw the board act, replacing manager Eduardo Berizzo with former AC Milan boss Vincenzo Montella. With 5 wins, 2 draws and 7 losses in La Liga since the turn of the year, it would be fair to say that Montella’s introduction has not really worked out how they would have hoped. However, the Italian’s influence on the cup competitions have shed light on what this side can achieve with some consistency. First guiding the Spanish side to a Copa Del Rey final versus the current holders Barcelona, and then going onto beat Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United to secure a place in the Champions League Quarter Finals for the first time in 60 years. Despite the first leg deficit, Montella will be hoping his side can summon their dogged cup mentality to make history at the Allianz Arena.
Sevilla travel to Munich without defenders Sebastien Corchia and Simon Kjaer who are both carrying injuries, whilst Bayern are missing star names such as Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, David Alaba and Arturo Vidal.
Potential Bayern Munich Starting XI: Ulreich, Kimmich, Boateng, Hummels, Bernat, Martinez, Thiago, James Rodriguez, Müller, Ribery, Lewandowski.
Potential Sevilla Starting XI: Soria, Navas, Carrico, Lenglet, Escudero, N’Zonzi, Banega, Vazquez, Correa, Sarabia, Muriel.
