A goalless draw against 10-man Sevilla was enough to keep Bayern Munich's hopes of a treble-winning season alive.

Bayern, playing in their seventh straight Champions League quarter-final, never needed to hit top form but were in control against the largely toothless Spaniards. The Germans, who last won the treble in 2013 again under coach Jupp Heynckes, advanced after having been eliminated by a Spanish team in each of the past four seasons.

Sevilla ended the game with ten men after the dismissal in stoppage time of Joaquin Correa for a rough challenge on Javi Martinez.
