Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella is optimistic his team can pull off another upset and eliminate Bayern Munich from the Champions League on Wednesday.

After the Bavarians sealed their Bundesliga victory for the sixth consecutive year over the weekend against Augsburg, Bayern are primed and ready for more.

Sevilla, on the other hand, have suffered an alarming drop in form since beating Manchester United in the Round of 16. They crashed to a 4-0 La Liga defeat at Celta Vigo on Saturday. We take a look.

"We have to play the same way as we did in the first leg".

Left-back David Alaba, back in training after a back injury, and midfielder Arturo Vidal, who has a knock, are unlikely to play.

That has already been reflected in his record of seven wins in 13 meetings with City boss Pep Guardiola, better than any other coach in the world.

Heynckes said Boateng has recovered and is fit to play. 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.

Sevilla's Simon Kjaer and Sebastian Corchia have both been ruled out of the tie whilst Angel Correa is a doubt. "He is an worldwide (player) for Argentina and he is the heart of Sevilla, he's always decisive but we are well prepared". Youngster Jesus Vallejo could partner Raphael Varane at the back.

Marcelo added a third for the reigning champions after Paulo Dybala was shown a second yellow card, leaving Juventus, last season's finalists, absolutely shell-shocked. The Argentine will provide the creative impetus in midfield for Sevilla, with Steven N'Zonzi keeping things tight in the middle.

Cristiano Ronaldo's reigning champions bring three away goals home from Turin, and it's hard to believe even a club as storied as Juve can collect a three-goal win given the opposition and the venue of the Bernabeu.

But not in this situation", White said on ESPN Friday morning. "We were actually working on a new deal and a new plans for him". Star brawler Conor McGregor is a free man, following a backstage melee in an outburst that could harm his star power.

"The match lasts 90 minutes, so it's important that we are in it for the whole 90 minutes", the Italian told the media ahead of Wednesday's game.

The big man in the middle. Against Bayern, we will have to work a lot, have a bit of luck.

Sevilla did find the net once when the teams met last week on Spanish soil, Pablo Sarabia putting them ahead in the first half, but were eventually beaten by a pair of deflected goals. That's how the game goes.

Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are also among the clubs involved in this summer's competition.

Eight-time Bundesliga victor Jupp Heynckes is expected to ring the changes for the visit of former club Borussia Mönchengladbach to the home of freshly minted champions Bayern Munich on Saturday (kick-off: 06:30 PM CEST/ 04:30 PM GMT/ 12:30 PM EST). Robert Lewandowski has a point to prove as well, and it could well turn out to be a long night for the visitors.
