Bayern Munich reach semi-finals after goalless draw with Sevilla

A goalless draw against Sevilla was enough to send Bayern Munich into the Champions League last four with a 2-1 aggregate victory to keep their hopes of a treble-winning season alive.

Bayern, playing in their seventh successive quarter-final, never needed to hit top form but were in control throughout with the largely toothless Spanish side only rarely venturing into the box.

The German club, who last won the treble in 2013, again under Jupp Heynckes, had secured a 2-1 advantage from the first leg in Spain last week.

Sevilla, who beat Manchester United in the last 16, ended the game with 10 men after the dismissal in stoppage time of Joaquin Correa for a rough challenge.

The result meant Sevilla, in the last eight of the European Cup for the first time since their only previous appearance at this stage 60 years ago, still managed to end Heynckes’ 12-game record winning run in the competition.
