Champions League QF 2nd Leg Preview Part 2

Real and potentially Bayern through?

Bayern Munich vs. Sevilla (2-1) 

Sevilla were unlucky to concede two goals at home to Bayern. They made Bayern work for it but Bayern were solid enough to keep out attacks from Sevilla. 

Bayern beat Augsburg at the weekend by 4 goals to 1 to clinch their 6th Bundesliga title in a row. Bayern can now concentrate their efforts on the Champions League and advancing to a potential final. 

Sevilla lost 4-0 to Celta Vigo in La Liga and will be looking to bounce back in Munich. 

Sevilla need to score a minimum of 2 goals to stand a chance of qualifying to the semis, it is a task which is easier said than done especially since it is in Munich. Sevilla did manage to score two away goals at Old Trafford but Bayern are a team on a high of being crowned champions and will probably progress to the semis. 

Real Madrid vs. Juventus (3-0)

This tie was probably finished in the first leg and while Juventus might manage to score a few goals in Madrid, Madrid will most definitely score at home. 

At the weekend Real drew at home to Atletico in the Madrid derby. Ronaldo continued his scoring run while Griezmann equalised for Atletico. 

Juventus managed to win 4-2 at Benevento, Dybala scored a hattrick while Douglas Costa scored the remaining goal. 

Juventus need to score a minimum of 3 goals without reply to at least take the game to extra time. If this game was to be played in Turin, Juventus could have stood a chance but the Bernabeu will be rocking, and after having lost La Liga this season Madrid will be focused to win their third successive Champions League by progressing to the semis.
