Bayern Munich vs. Borussia Mönchengladbach: Probable line-ups and match stats

The German giants nicked two vital away goals in Spain last week - coming from behind to win 2-1 and remain in the driving seat as they return to the Allianz Stadium to finish the job in the second-leg. However, Sevilla have already proved how risky they can be away from home in Europe.

They did score twice on their travels in the last round, knocking out Manchester United in the process, but Montella knows the risks of being overly aggressive when chasing the game against such powerful opponents.

The last two UEFA Champions League semi-finalists will be decided on Wednesday as the quarter-finals come to an end.

Jupp Heynckes' side were able to resume control of proceedings as Sevilla faded - a exhausted hack over from Steven N'Zonzi indicating there would be no repeat of the late Old Trafford drama long before Correa disgraced himself- and Bayern's veteran coach remains in contention for a stunning repeat of his 2012-13 treble. Real Madrid won the first leg in Turin thanks to a Ronaldo masterclass by 3-0.

Bayern Munich avoided the pitfalls endured by some of their fellow European heavyweights as a goalless draw against 10-man Sevilla booked a place in the Champions League semi-finals. Under Pep they were so dominant offensively, had so much possession, so high up the pitch.

The Bundesliga outfit take a slender 2-1 lead into tonight's second leg with Sevilla.




Hargreaves, who played for the Bavarians between 2000 and 2007, has backed his former club to go all the way in Europe, especially with the experienced leadership of manager Jupp Heynckes to guide them.

However, for the moment he insists his "personal aim is on reaching the semi-finals".

The 72-year-old Heynckes led Bayern to the 2013 Champions League title when Arjen Robben scored the victor in a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund.

At the weekend, Bayern sealed a sixth successive Bundesliga title and the German side have not wasted time in revealing plans ahead of the next campaign.

Heynckes said Boateng has recovered and is fit to play.

Versatile fullback Alaba has missed their last two matches with back problems while midfielder Vidal picked up a knee injury in the first leg.
