Bayern Hold Off Sevella To Enter Semi-Finals

by | 12th April 2018

Bayern Munich played out a 0-0 draw to see off Sevilla’s spirited challenge and reach the Champions League semi-finals with a 2-1 aggregate win keeping their hopes of a treble-wimming season alive.


The newly crowned German champions needed defensive grit to match their usual attacking flair at a sold-out Allianz Arena.


Sevilla defender Joaquin Correa, who was sent off in stoppage time, hit the bar with a header and midfielder Pablo Sarabia, who scored in the first leg, wasted a glorious first-half chance.


But Bayern top-scorer Robert Lewandowski had a header pushed over the crossbar by goalkeeper David Soria and a brilliant block from Sevilla’s Jesus Navas denied Franck Ribery.


It was the first time in 22 home Champions League matches that Bayern had failed to score.


Bayern who are into the semi-finals for the seventh time in nine years will join Liverpool, Roma and Real Madrid.
