Bayern, Germany and Sevilla, Spain are approaching the forthcoming second leg of a quarterfinal of the Champions League in absolutely different psychological state. First, the hosts have lost to the Munich grandee with the score - 1:2 (Sarabia - Navas (own goal), Alcantara) during the first match of Vincenzo Montella and Jupp Heynckes in the capital of Andalusia at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán that was hold on the 3rd of April, Tuesday. And secondly...
But Bayern and its loyal fans have experienced the most important, paramount emotional lift last Saturday when having won away match over Augsburg (1:4) the Munich grandee once again became the owner of the Silver trophy.
It is already the sixth champion’s title of the hosts of Allianz Arena in a row. From these six champion titles three have been won under the leadership of Josep Guardiola, two - Jupp Heynckes and last season Carlo Ancelotti was heading the game of a record master.
And the team of Vincenzo Montella is absolutely in different mood now. Today's Sevilla is weaker than the Munich super club if we speak about the class and level of the game. And therefore the possibility of Bayern to get into a semi-final of club championship of Europe doesn't raise any doubts.
And in its national championship the recent challenger for the fourth final place is now losing to everyone now and even with the humiliating score, as in the last away match with Celta (4:0).
Officially, from all four underdogs of the first quarterfinal matches Sevilla is in more favorable position as it has lost to Bayern with a goal difference – 1 goal.
However now, during the return home match at the Allianz Arena even the goalless draw will please the team of Jupp Heynckes. And you know pretty well how good Bayern is at controlling the game …
Bayern – 1.22, draw – 6.00, Sevilla – 12.00;
