Sevilla vs Bayern Munich

Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, Seville

Sevilla, who finished as runners-up in Group E behind five-time winners of the competition, Liverpool, continued their remarkable run in this season’s edition by coming away with the most unlikely of victories from Old Trafford, beating Manchester United 2-1 to set up a first-ever clash with the Bavarian giants Bayern Munich. Their preparations for this mammoth fixture saw Vincenzo Montella’s side throw away a two-goal lead in the closing minutes against La Liga table-toppers Barcelona to draw 2-2 at the weekend.

Sevilla recent results:

10/03/2018 – Sevilla 0-2 Valencia

Bayern Munich are in scintillating form ahead of Tuesday night’s quarter-final. Leipzig, however, recently ended a remarkable run of 18 games which had included 17 victories and had seen them score a whopping 53 goals along the way. They returned to winning ways with a 6-0 drubbing of Dortmund, signalling their serious intent going forward for the rest of the season. They are a real shout for the Champions League and if they can find a way past a stubborn Sevilla side, they will book their place in the last four once again after being knocked out to Spanish opposition in Real Madrid at the same stage last year.

31/03/2018 – Bayern 6-0 Dortmund

Real Madrid vs Juventus

Santiago Bernabeu, Madrid

Despite sitting third in La Liga 13 points adrift of leaders Barcelona after a lacklustre campaign thus far, they remain on course for an unprecedented hat-trick of UEFA Champions League titles – a feat yet to be achieved in the modern era of football. Los Blancos have registered nine wins in their last 10 games in all competitions with star forward and current Ballon d’Or holder Cristiano Ronaldo hitting peak form at just the right time. He was left out of the squad for the win over Las Palmas but his four goals in the recent 6-3 rout of Girona took his tally to 37 for the season, from just 35 games in all competitions, including 10 in his last five appearances.

Real Madrid recent results:

31/03/2018 – Las Palmas 0-3 Madrid

18/03/2018 – Madrid 6-3 Girona

10/03/2018 – Eibar 1-2 Madrid

06/03/2018 – PSG 1-2 Madrid (UCL)

03/03/2018 – Madrid 3-1 Getafe


The Old Lady will still be having nightmares after losing out in two Champions League finals in the last three years alone. Juventus will have to face those demons once more if they to go all they in 2018. They have battled their way back to the top of Serie A after trailing to Napoli for much of the season, and after all looked lost against Spurs in the first leg of their last 16 tie, Allegri’s men turned up the style at Wembley in the second half of the second leg to overturn a deficit and book their spot in the last eight. They beat Madrid in the semi-finals, over two legs in 2015 en route to the first of those final defeats and although they hold a slightly better record over their rivals, in five visits to the Bernabeu, they have lost three times with the only draw coming in the second leg of that semi-final in 2015 which ended 3-2 on aggregate to the Italians.

Juventus recent results:

31/03/2018 – Juventus 3-1 AC Milan
