Bayern Munich vs Sevilla Match Preview
Bayern Munich will look to close out their tie comfortably as they carry a 2-1 lead from the first leg against Sevilla. This Bayern Munich vs Sevilla second leg Champions League quarter final second leg will be played at the Allianz Arena in Munich on Wednesday, April 11, so check out our Bayern Munich vs Sevilla prediction and betting tips.
Bayern were always the favourites to progress from their encounter and hence it was a surprise when Sevilla took the lead in the first leg through Pablo Sarabia. However, that proved to be a false dawn for the Spanish side as Bayern equalised through an own goal from Jesus Navas and then took the lead through Thiago Alcantara to seal a 2-1 win. Ahead of the Bayern Munich vs Sevilla fixture, the German giants look in great form having won 4-1 in the weekend in the Bundesliga. That the win was achieved without most of the regular names is a tribute to their bench strength. That win makes it three in a row for the Bavarians who have scored 12 goals and conceded just three in the process. At home, that record is much more formidable as they are yet to lose in 19 competitive fixtures (W17, D2).
Can Sevilla spring a surprise and break the home record of Bayern? The visitors are winless in four games (D1, L3) in all competitions and have fallen to seventh in the La Liga table. To have any hopes of progressing to the semis, the Spanish side have to score at least two goals in this Bayern Munich vs Sevilla fixture. However, it has to be noted that the Bavarians have not conceded more than two goals at home this season in 19 games. In only three of those 19 games did they concede two goals while 11 of those were clean sheets. Surely, Sevilla will have to do a lot to even think of an upset!

Bayern Munich vs Sevilla Prediction
There is no doubt that the task ahead of Sevilla is a monstrous one. Not only will they have to score more than a goal, they will have to keep Bayern quiet. That looks a tough task, especially since Sevilla have not kept a clean sheet in six matches in all competitions. Bayern look good to continue their scoring record, given that their best players were rested during the weekend. We expect very good performance of home side and believe that Bayer will finish the job in the first half-time.
