Bayern's Heynckes on Sevilla: We must take these guys seriously

Bayern's Heynckes on Sevilla: We must take these guys seriously

Where: Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Seville, Spain.

But Manuel Neuer's continued absence means second-choice goalkeeper Sven Ulreich is expected to start between the sticks. Of course Philipp [Lahm] was a great player - even when he had a bad game he was still better than the others.

Few strikers in the world would be able to replicate Wissam Ben Yedder's record in the Champions League for Sevilla this season, according to the club's former striker Aleksandr Kerzhakov.

Sevilla pulled off a surprise in the Champions League round of 16, but it'll take an even bigger shocker to keep its dream run going on.

Meanwhile Munich's chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stated the club would announce a new coach following Heynckes by the end of the month.

Should that happen - or if the Bavarian helps his country retain their world title - don't expect him to be yearning for global recognition in the form of a Ballon d'Or triumph.

It is in the last eight for the first time in nearly 60 years.

The player himself is happy to make the switch given his Los Blancos future appeared bleak under Zinedine Zidane during the 2016/17 season, despite performing to a high level whenever called upon.

Jupp Heynckes' team produced an equally clear clarion call in the previous round of this competition, as they pulverised a good Besiktas team 8-1 on aggregate.

These two sides have never played each other in a competitive game before.

Jupp Heynckes side are flying in the Bundesliga and are only one win away from lifting the trophy in their domestic leagueWhat time is kick-off? The game represented the first of six caps and, in total, three goals; a decent return but, in a parallel universe to the 11-a-side game, hardly a feat that would propel him into the global spotlight.

To beat an opponent of Sevilla's class, Heynckes is aware of the need for real experts.

Rescuing the Colombian international from his Real Madrid nightmare, Bayern Munich's backroom staff received widespread plaudits for their shrewd business acumen last summer when acquiring the services of James Rodriguez for a loan fee of just €13mn with the option to buy at a cut-rate of a mere €42mn.
