Reporter's view: Fresh from sealing a sixth consecutive Bundesliga title on Saturday, I expect Bayern to comfortably navigate their way into the semi-finals. Sevilla will need to take risks, which will leave more space for the German champions. The Spanish side did brilliantly at Old Trafford in the round of 16, but beating the Bavarians in their own back yard should prove too tough a challenge.

When you lose 2-1 at home, you know you need to take risks [in the second leg] to qualify. You need to be more attacking, which is what Sevilla will be. But we have our own style and plan of attack. We will play like we always do at home. The Champions League is the competition every coach and player wants to win. You come up against the best teams in Europe. Of course we want to win it.

Vincenzo Montella, Sevilla coach

The match lasts 90 minutes, so it's important that we are in it for the whole 90 minutes. We need to have balance. We don't need to score as quickly as possible. It's important that we stay in the game. We know we can score a goal or two in the second half, but we have to avoid conceding, especially in the second half.
