Bayern Munich hosts Sevilla on Wednesday in the Champions League quarterfinals for their second leg, which Bayern leads 2-1.

Sevilla's last visit to Germany saw them lose 4-2 at Borussia Monchengladbach in the UEFA Champions League group stage in November 2015, ending a run of five straight victories against Bundesliga opponents.

The first leg, played last week at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, saw Bayern come from behind to clinch a 2-1 win.

Like so many players for Chelsea, Kenedy was bought in at a young age (19 from Fluminese in Brazil) with seemingly the only plan to keep him for a number of years, loan him out, and then sell at whatever profit they can get.

"When he did not play from the beginning in Sevilla, as the media, you speculated", Heynckes said.

However, Heynckes said both left-back David Alaba, back in training after a back injury, and midfielder Arturo Vidal, who has a knock, are unlikely to play.

Cristiano Ronaldo's reigning champions bring three away goals home from Turin, and it's hard to believe even a club as storied as Juve can collect a three-goal win given the opposition and the venue of the Bernabeu.

Sevilla, have the chance of rewriting history, as they have never reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

De Bruyne grateful for Silva as City pair achieve gold standard
He helps us a lot. "If they go through and they deserve it, that's the way it goes". I think he is up there with ( Harry) Kane , me and David (Silva).

Los Rojiblancos will be disappointed that they could not make home advantage count in the first leg, making this return leg a herculean task to overcome with Bayern having two vital away goals.

Heynckes rested the majority of his regulars ahead of Wednesday's Champions League game.

The big man in the middle.

He added: "Sevilla are in the last chance saloon and a unsafe team". That's how the game goes.

Heynckes it was who steered Bayern to their Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League treble in 2012/13 and since he returned to replace Carlo Ancellotti last October they have won 28 of their 31 games in all competitions.

While it could potentially be a tricky night, you would fully expect Bayern to advance from this position though if Sevilla were to grab the opening goal, things could be very interesting indeed.

"I'm not interested in talk of favorites, I prefer to show it out on the pitch and we must respect all clubs and all aspects of football".
