Sevilla will be playing host to Bayern in the first leg at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, with the returning leg to conclude the following week. No disrespect to any team, but since the quarterfinal draw was a lottery, you could say that Bayern Munich, along with Barcelona, are the biggest achievers as not only they avoided each other but ran their luck by avoiding some heavyweights like Real Madrid, Juventus, and Manchester City in the draw.
The hosts are struggling in La Liga this season and if we take the current table into consideration, it's fair to say, the 2016 Europa Champions won't be in the Champions League next season unless they win this competition. Even a Europa League finish is far from guaranteed as Girona and Real Betis are hot on their heels for the sixth position.
However, in Europe, Sevilla are playing with no fear. They have been playing some beautiful football of late and the visitors should be wary of this Andalusian club who famously knocked the three-times Champions Manchester United out of the competition in the last round. While the way Vincenzo Montella put his side against Barcelona in the last week's La Liga match, it wouldn't be a mistake to think that the hosts have the talent to create yet another shock in Europe.
Bayern Munich, on the other hand, have been some sorts of traveler this season, both in Bundesliga and in Europe, barring a chastening 3-1 loss against PSG in the group stage. They swat aside Besiktas in the last-16, winning the tie 8-1 on aggregate, and now come into the match with their shooting boots perfectly pollarded against Borussia Dortmund in the last match as the Bavarian thrashed their eternal rivals 6-0 at Allianz Arena.
Sevilla- Ever Banega is suspended for the hosts. There are no other major injury concerns.
Bayern Munich- First-choice goal-keeper Manuel Neuer has returned to training but remains some way off a return to action, whilst the likes of Niklas Dorsch and Kingsley Coman are other notable injury problems.
