Sevilla vs Bayern Munich preview, betting tips and prediction: Can Sevilla take another huge European scalp?
Sevilla to win (9/2) and BTTS (4/6) @ with Coral
Sevilla were completely written off against Manchester United in the last round of their Champions League campaign, but they showed the wider world what they are about again, having done so for years in the Europa League, by knocking out Jose Mourinho’s much fancied Red Devils. They were at home first in that tie, which they used to their advantage, and while their reward is playing Bayern Munich in the quarter finals, with the first leg on Tuesday, doubters would be well advised not to write them off so quickly.

Drawing 0-0 against United at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan meant that any goal scored at Old Trafford would cause mass panic. As it was, they scored twice and ran out 2-1 winners. Bayern won’t be as easy to contain, especially if the reportedly unhappy Robert Lewandowski is on form which he has been as usual all season. Jupp Heynckes’ men were not fancied at the start of the season under Carlo Ancelotti, especially because they were eased aside in the group stages by PSG, but now they are on the charge under the stewardship of the man who led them to the treble in 2013. Dark horses for success they certainly are, and we think they’ll get off to a good start here. Don’t forget to use one of our free bets on this game!
Sevilla were an inconsistent side under Eduardo Berizzo, and they have continued to be so under his replacement Vincenzo Montella. They followed up the first leg draw with United by beating Athletic Bilbao, but the return win was sandwiched by two defeats, to Valencia and Leganes.

Bayern, meanwhile, are steamrolling to another league title, but a run of three straight wins, including away at Besiktas in the last 16, was ended by European hopefuls RB Leipzig last weekend.
Fullback Sebastian Corchia and winger Jesus Navas will be missing through injury for Sevilla, while Bayern could finally welcome Manuel Neuer back after a year out.
