Bayern Munich v Sevilla UEFA Champions League, 11th April 7.45pm
The Germans are well in control of this tie as was to be fully expected. They hold a 2-1 lead over Sevilla from the first leg, but that’s two away goals to their advantage. So after wrapping up their sixth straight Bundesliga title on the weekend, the Germans look well placed to progress in Europe. What can Sevilla come up with as they go in search of at least a couple of goals away from home?
Bayern Munich v Sevilla Betting Odds*
Bayern Munich 1/5, Draw 5/1, Sevilla 14/1* (Betting Odds taken at 7:53 p.m. on April 8th, 2018)
Bayern Munich News and Form
This is Bayern’s seventh straight quarter final appearance. Before getting dumped out by Real Madrid twelve months ago, Bayern had won their six previous last-eight ties. They hold a decent advantage over Sevilla now heading back to home soil for the second leg. Overall they hold a W9 L10 record in two-legged ties against Spanish sides and have exited the Champions League in each of the last four seasons against a side from Spain. In the bet365 correct score market a Bayern Munich 2-1 result is at 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:53 p.m. on April 8th, 2018). They won all three group stage matches this season and then thumped Besitka 5-0 in their home leg of their round of sixteen tie against the Turkish club. They are not short of scoring power that’s for sure and Robert Lewandowski is the 2/1 bet365 first goalscorer favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 7:53 p.m. on April 8th, 2018). He has 24 goals in 19 home matches for Bayern this season. In 2018 he has scored 14 goals in 13 games for his club in all competitions. Bayern’s record against Liga clubs in Munich is W18 D5 L3 and they have only lost one of their last 24 UEFA ties after having won the first leg away from home. They shouldn’t have too much trouble closing this out.
Sevilla News and Form
This is Sevilla’s second quarter final appearance in the European Cup. The previous one was in the 1957/58 season when they lost 10-2 against Real Madrid. They do hold a positive record in two-legged knockout ties against German opposition of W3 L2 though. The last time they made a trip to Germany was to face Borussia Monchengladbach in the UEFA Champions League group stage in 2015. They lost that one, snapping a five-match winning streak (home and away) that they were on against German sides. They don’t actually have a bad record in Germany itself having taken five wins from nine visits (three defeats, one draw). In the last round, they collected a 2-1 win at Old Trafford to get past Manchester United, and have suffered just the two defeats in their last twelve away games in Europe (W4 D6). Both teams to score at bet365 is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:53 p.m. on April 8th, 2018). They aren’t in terrific form overall though having won only three of their last ten games across all competitions (D3 L4). They lost at Celta Vigo in La Liga on the weekend 4-0, having scored in each of their previous seven away games.
Bayern Munich v Sevilla Head to Head
The game between them last week was the first meeting between the two clubs. Bayern though have been knocked out by a Spanish side in each of the last four seasons of the UEFA Champions League.
Who will win – Bayern Munich v Sevilla Predictions
Bayern Munich are not likely to be toppled on home soil here. All the pressure of the Bundesliga title race is off (not that they were in any danger of losing the race), so they can relax and make a real run at the UEFA Champions League. They are likely to go and bank another win, but back both teams to score in the match as well.
