Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben

Given the tightness of the tie, Bayern Munich fans were optimistic following the announcement of their starting line-up.

A much-changed side took to the field in Augsburg last weekend as Bayern hit back from a goal down to seal a comprehensive 4-1 win and wrap up their sixth successive Bundesliga title.

"A 2-1 win away from home is always great, but it's not the same as 5-0 against Besiktas", said Robben, referring to their first-leg win in the last 16.

However, the game is too soon for left-back David Alaba (back injury) and midfielder Arturo Vidal (knock) meaning Rafinha and Javi Martinez continue in the team.

But Robben, who scored the victor in the 2013 final, is aware of what Sevilla are capable of having watched the Spanish outfit win 2-1 at Manchester United in the previous round.

Jupp Heynckes has won his last 12 Champions League games as manager, the longest ever run in the history of the competition.

Robben warned that they needed to be "careful" not to underestimate La Liga opponents Sevilla.

LeBron James throws down jam, stares down Sixers
LeBron James has played with the Cavs since 2014, but he could opt out of the final year of his deal and possibly come to Philly. They had run it only one other time this season, and Love told ESPN the pair hadn't practiced it since training camp.

"When he took over, Jupp said that it would be hard to make up the five points - now we have more than 20 on Dortmund", beamed Rummenigge.

The big man in the middle. James Rodriguez has chipped in as well.

Jupp Heynckes' side were able to resume control of proceedings as Sevilla faded - a exhausted hack over from Steven N'Zonzi indicating there would be no repeat of the late Old Trafford drama long before Correa disgraced himself- and Bayern's veteran coach remains in contention for a stunning repeat of his 2012-13 treble.

For PSG in his debut season for the French side he made just one league appearance and doubled that in his final season in the French capital, before his move to Turin.

Bayern Munich are close to agreeing to new deals with wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

"Everyone is talking about the semis, but if we win, then we can talk about that".
