Ronaldo stunner sinks Juventus, as Bayern scrape past Sevilla

Deflected efforts from Franck Ribery and Thiago Alcantara gave the German champions the win after Pablo Sabaria had given Sevilla the lead, meaning the Spaniards will need to win at the Allianz Arena if they are to progress.

Another giant of the European game Bayern Munich, recorded a 2-1 win against at Sevilla to give themselves a narrow advantage for the second leg back in Bavaria.

Playing without their on-field leader, the suspended Ever Banega, Sevilla were the better side in the first half and would have taken a 1-0 lead to the dressing room but for an unfortunate deflection, reports EFE news agency.

Thiago netted the victor for Bayern as their two away goals against Sevilla give them the advantage heading back to Munich.

Cristiano Ronaldo stole the spotlight once again as Real Madrid moved closer to the Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday.

Their coach Vincenzo Montella had pointed out on Monday how his side has "already made history" by appearing in their first quarter-final of the Champions League era, but their season is in danger of fizzling out before the end of the month. "We played well against a very strong Bayern team".

The lead lasted just five minutes, though, as the visitors experienced a major stroke of luck.

The North Korean leader appeared in a group photograph with the performers, distributed by North Korean media. A cultural delegation comprising of about 160 members from South Korea performed at the show.

Montella made a courageous call in dropping goalkeeper Sergio Rico and replacing him with David Soria, who had not made a competitive appearance since December 20.

"We played well in the first half, created many chances, but that own goal was key", Sarabia said. "He's the better player, for me". We suffered a bit in the second half, but they had possession, not chances. "It will be hard, but we are not out of it yet".

"The second half was more even, but we didn't have the energy to go on the counter-attack". We had some shots in the last few minutes and I liked that a lot, but the two goals were a shame.

"If we want to win the Champions League, then we will have to play better", Heynckes warned, before paying tribute to his substitutes' impacts.

The Colombia worldwide moved to Allianz Arena on a two-year loan last summer, with Bayern holding a non-obligatory option to buy the attacking midfielder.

The Poland captain has also struck five times in the UEFA Champions League and added three DFB Cup goals to his 2017/18 tally, fuelling Bayern's hopes of repeating their 2013 treble success.
