Bayern have the potential to progress to the semi-finals even if they were hammered i nthe first leg. The Bavarians thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk 7-0 in the last round after being held to a 0-0 draw in the away leg and the away goal could prove vital come the end of the tie. They were 2-0 winners at Hoffenheim on Saturday despite Guardiola rested a number of regular starters. Bayern remain severely hampered by injuries, with David Alaba, Medhi Benatia, Javi Martinez, and Arjen Robben all currently sidelined. Furthermore, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Franck Ribery are both doubtful. Full-back Juan Bernat was forced to withdraw through an ankle injury, but he is expected to start. Porto go to the Allianz with a 3-1 lead to protect in this quarter-final second leg clash. They come into this game unbeaten in Europe this season and having found the net in every Champions League outing so far. Draws against Shakthar and Basel and victories over Athletic Bilbao and BATE show that they are more than capable of picking up results on their travels. Bayern possess a hugely impressive record at the Allianz Arena, dropping a mere five points at home this season with some 43 goals scored and just six conceded. In Champions League they have won all four encounters with thirteen goals scored and none conceded.
