Bayern Munich's hopes of playing in a Champions League final in their own stadium will be difficult as they face a 1-0 deficit against an FC Basel side unbeaten in their last 17 outings.

Despite thrashing Hoffenheim 7-1 in the Bundesliga on Saturday, Bayern are treading warily against Basel who are attempting to become the first Swiss team to reach the last eight of Europe's top club competition in 33 years.

Bayern, whose stadium hosts this year's Champions League final, have won 11 of their last 12 European games at home, yet have made a habit of slipping up at the Allianz Arena at crucial moments.

Last season, Bayern went out at the same stage when they lost 3-2 at home to Inter Milan, having won 1-0 away in the first leg.
