Sevilla are definitely the least-fancied team at this stage of their tournament. However, they fully deserve their spot against Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich following their heroic performance against Manchester United in the last round.
Both sides will play the first leg of their quarterfinal tie at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Tuesday. Sevilla have been underwhelming in La Liga, and they sit in the sixth spot. However, they have lived up to their reputation in Europe once again and find themselves amongst eight best sides in Europe.
On Saturday, Los Rojiblancos came very close to become the first side to beat Barcelona in the league this season, but late goals from Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez forced a 2-2 draw.
Meanwhile, Bayern had it easy on the weekend as they registered an emphatic 6-0 home win over Borussia Dortmund. The Germans have more or less confirmed another Bundesliga title, and they are one of the favourites to win Champions League this season.
In the last round of the tournament, Bayern comfortably won their both legs against Turkish side Besiktas. Bayern won the European title under Jupp Heynckes in 2013, and they must fancy their chances once again.
These two sides have never played each other in a competitive game before.
