Sevilla unable to fluster off-colour Bayern in dour scoreless stalemate

Bayern Munich 0-0 Sevilla (Bayern Munich win 2-1 on aggregate)

By Jonathan Veal

Bayern Munich are through to the Champions League semi-finals for the seventh time in nine years after a 0-0 draw in their quarter-final second leg with Sevilla.

It was far from a vintage Bayern display as they were kept from scoring in the opening 45 minutes for only the third time in 50 games while they also were denied victory on home soil for just the third time this season.

For Sevilla, it could have been different had Joaquin Correa's header gone in instead of hitting the crossbar, but in truth a comeback never looked likely.

They also ended with 10 men when Correa's evening got worse after a late tackle on Javi Martinez saw him dismissed.

Bayern, crowned Bundesliga champions for a 28th time at the weekend, were below their best but they ended the first half strongly and were twice close to putting the tie to bed through Mats Hummels and Franck Ribery.

The closest Sevilla came to setting up a granstand finale came just before the hour when, from Ever Banega's enticing free-kick, Correa climbed highest but the ball crashed into the crossbar and to safety.
