Bayern Munich reaches Champions League semifinals

Bayern Munich reaches Champions League semifinals

The Bavarian giants will be buoyed heading into the second leg, having clinched their sixth successive Bundesliga title over the weekend.

Heynckes, who checked out from his previous stint as Bayern boss as a treble victor in 2013, has his team chasing another trio of titles this campaign.

Bayern Munich reached the Champions League semi-finals for the seventh time in nine seasons as Wednesday's goalless draw at home to Sevilla sent the German side through 2-1 on aggregate. Midfielder Ever Banega was suspended for the first leg but will return here.

"We need to be careful", warned Robben."It's the last roll of the dice for Sevilla and they will give it their all". Under Pep they were so dominant offensively, had so much possession, so high up the pitch.

- In the history of the competition, there have been 312 occasions of the home team losing the first leg of a knockout tie - only six of those sides have progressed.

"People are already talking about the semifinals, but we still have a game to play", he said.

Last month the Saudi army intercepted seven missiles over Riyadh launched by the rebels. Multiple blasts were heard, and plumes of smoke could be seen from the capital.

"I live for these Champions League evenings, and that's why you become a footballer".

"We know we can score a goal or two in the second half, but we have to avoid conceding, especially in the second half".

Robert Lewandowski, who has scored 35 goals in 39 games this season, Franck Ribery, Joshua Kimmich, Corentin Tolisso, Jerome Boateng and Sebastian Rudy, are one yellow card away from missing a potential semi-final.

Navas made a goal-saving challenge at right-back when Thomas Muller slid a low ball towards Ribery at the back post, but a last-ditch tackle by Rafinha on Sarabia in the final minute of the half underlined Bayern's continued unease.

A lot of what Bayern create goes through the middle, with James Rodriguez and Thiago Alcantara combining for a two-pronged creative force.

"Joshua Kimmich has probably been one of their best players this season".
