Sevilla 1-2 Bayern Munich: Player Ratings & Man of the Match

Grant SmithApr 06, 2018

Bayern Munich fought back with a deflected own goal and a late header from Thiago to claim a 2-1 win at Sevilla in an exciting Champions League quarter-final, first leg clash on Tuesday.

"We still have to play very good at home".

Thiago Alcantara met Ribery's cross to the back post with a header low into the ground, which came off Escudero and bounced into the net beyond the reach of goalkeeper David Soria.

"Sevilla are a good team and it's not easy here", said Ribery.

Who is the most likely team to win the Champions League? "We improved in the second half and in the end deserved to win". We didn't use the space in midfield and the tempo wasn't high enough.

Below are the top five scorers and appearance-makers (all-time in the Champions League) now playing for Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Roma and Sevilla.

Sevilla's early momentum, however, had now given way to a spell of controlled Bayern pressure and it was no surprise when the visitors took the lead midway through the second half.

Ribery was aiming for a team-mate in the middle but Navas inadvertently provided the finishing touch, Soria, surprisingly selected ahead of Sergio Rico by Montella, unable to react in time to prevent the ball out at his near post. We had a ideal tactical shape in the first half. "It hurt us when we were playing better". "The second half was much better". Adrift of the top four in La Liga, they will take on Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final, 10 days after facing Bayern in the second leg.

Two away goals will have Bayern walking away from the match confident they can finish the job at the Allianz Arena next week where they have won 21 of their last 22 matches. This time the ball deflected off Escudero before going in. The 29-year-old has 35 goals in all competitions for the club this season as they close in on another Bundesliga title.

With Sevilla tiring, five-time European champions Bayern took advantage and Thiago headed the victor with the help of a deflection off Sergio Escudero in the 68th minute. The winning goal arrived on 68 minutes.
