Bayern in control
March 29, 2012 09:00:08 UK
Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes was delighted by his side's clean sheet as they moved closer to the Champions League semi-finals with a 2-0 win at Marseille.
Munich were comfortable winners in the first leg of their quarter-final clash, and now look likely to meet fellow giants Real Madrid in the last four of the competition. They are 9.50 to win the return leg 3-0, while Marseille can be backed at 81.00 to win by the same scoreline. A 3-3 draw is available at 67.00.

The German side took the lead through Mario Gomez, although Marseille keeper Elinton Andrade should have done better, and Arjen Robben got the second after the break.
Marseille had their chances but Manuel Neuer pulled off some great saves to ensure his side didn't concede.
"We realised our objective by winning here without conceding any goals," said Heynckes.
"Marseille play emotional football, so it was very important for us to get this result tonight."
Meanwhile, downhearted Marseille coach Didier Deschamps has conceded his side now only has a "tiny" chance of progressing in the tournament.
He admitted: "We're not in the best position and we know Bayern are very strong at home. Players of that quality always punish you."
