Champions League In Focus - Bayern Munich vs Sevilla Preview

GettyChelsea may be forced to sell Kenedy in the summer

The Bavarian side were crowned Bundesliga champions for a sixth consecutive season after defeating Augsburg 4-1 on Saturday, and they're now looking to extend the contracts of two of their ageing stars, who are both out of contract in the summer.

Heynckes, who checked out from his previous stint as Bayern boss as a treble victor in 2013, has his team chasing another trio of titles this campaign.

Bayern Munich will take on Sevilla FC in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals on Wednesday, April 11 at 11:45 a.m.

Sevilla's bid to complete an unlikely comeback will be boosted by the return of Ever Banega, who missed the home leg through suspension.

He added: "Sevilla are in the last chance saloon and a unsafe team".

"They will certainly go on the offensive", said Heynckes.

James Rodriguez - so impressive from the Bayern bench in the first leg - grazed the top of the netting with a free-kick after Gabriel Mercado was a touch fortunate to see only yellow for hauling down Robert Lewandowski in the second minute.

With Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery both out of contract at the end of the season, Bayern are keen to find long-term replacements for their talismanic wingers, but know they likely to face stiff competition should they put in a bid for the player.

Bayern will be making their third appearance Stateside in five years, with their last participation including games against AC Milan, Inter Milan and Real Madrid. Some players get really nervous, but they set positive energy free in me.

Bayern have the big advantage of two away goals, Sevilla have to attack - there will be goals. "It's such a talented team, they are all chipping in", explained the 37-year-old. The German global should line up alongside compatriot Mats Hummels at the heart of the Bayern defence, while Juan Bernat is likely to continue deputising for Alaba at left-back.
