After clinching a sixth successive Bundesliga title on Saturday, Bayern Munich will look to continue its stunning run when it locks horns with Sevilla in the second leg Champions League quarterfinal encounter.

Jupp Heynckes's men prevailed 2-1 in the away leg, but will still have work to do at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday. However, looking at Bayern's impressive home record, which has seen it remain unbeaten in all competitions at home this season, a win looks likely. Sevilla, on the other hand, has had a rocky road and endured a 4-0 hammering against Celta Vigo in the La Liga on Saturday.

Team news
Jupp Heynckes will have a couple of injury concerns ahead of the tie as David Alaba and Arturo Vidal both missed the tie against Augsburg due to injury. Sevilla will be bolstered by the return of Ever Banega, who missed the first leg due to suspension. 

Formation
Bayern Munich (4-3-3): Sven Ulreich (GK); Joshua Kimmich, Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels, Juan Bernat, Javi Martinez, James Rodriguez, Tiago Alcantara, Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski, Franck Ribery
