Bayern Munich held Sevilla at arm's length to qualify for a fourth Champions League semi-final in five years. The recently-crowned Bundesliga champions managed the game with precision and experience to ensure that a fortuitous 1-2 victory in the first leg was enough. 

Steven N'Zonzi came closest for the visitors in a game of few clear-cut chances when he nodded Éver Banega's free-kick against the cross-bar in the second half. Javi Martínez was a rock of stability in the Bayern midfield, patrolling across the pitch to ensure Sevilla could not launch the counter-attacks that form the foundation of their threat. 

Frustrations boiled as the match edged past 90 minutes. Joaquín Correa committed a foul on the touchline and proceeded to take centre stage in a brawl that followed between the two benches. The referee responded with a red card that made little difference to the outcome. That Correa lost his cool is testament to the way Bayern smothered Sevilla. They were clinical, cold. Real Madrid's unconvincing passage to the last-four means Jupp Heynckes's side will move in to the next round with a quiet confidence.
