  • Bundesliga the catalyst in Bayern's pursuit of silverware- Martinez

It was the start of a busy spell for Heynckes' treble hopefuls, who host Sevilla in their UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg and take on Bayer Leverkusen in the last four of the DFB Cup either side of Saturday's meeting with Gladbach.

Last week's 2-1 comeback win at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan proved enough as a spirited Sevilla were unable to respond with the away goals they needed.

Navas made a goal-saving challenge at right-back when Thomas Muller slid a low ball towards Ribery at the back post, but a last-ditch tackle by Rafinha on Sarabia in the final minute of the half underlined Bayern's continued unease. Ever Banega missed the first leg with a yellow card suspension and his return will help Sevilla in midfield.

"Sevilla are in the last chance saloon and a unsafe team". "They did brilliantly in Manchester and we know we have to perform". Under Pep they were so dominant offensively, had so much possession, so high up the pitch.

- Ten of Robert Lewandowski's 45 Champions League goals have come versus Spanish opponents (22 per cent), more than against clubs from any other nation.

The NGOs have also called on South Korea to urge Kim to follow the United Nations recommendations on human rights. Park was subsequently impeached over a corruption scandal and sentenced to 24 years in prison last week.

The Bavarian giants have been merciless recently at the Allianz Arena, demolishing both Hamburg and Borussia Dortmund 6-0 in their last two home games.

Sevilla have been the surprise outfit in this competition, a point that was evident when they knocked out Manchester United in the previous round. "If you lose 2-1 at home, you have to take the initiative - and that is certainly what Sevilla will do. For one reason, they have to search for something to score goals in our stadium", Heynckes told press on Tuesday.

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

Old Trafford stands as an example and promise of what Sevilla can do, the kind of upset they can cause. Vincenzo Montella's men have failed to win each of their subsequent four games, including a heavy 4-0 defeat at the hands of Celta Vigo over the weekend that has dented their hopes of qualifying for the Europa League next season.
