Can Villarreal Knockout Bayern Munich in the Champions League Quarter-Finals?

Published: 2022-04-11 By: The Guru


Bundesliga’s side, Bayern Munich, will host La Liga’s side, Villarreal, in their second leg after a defeat on Wednesday last week. Danjuma’s 8th-minute goal was enough to secure a win against the favorites Bayern.

Bayern Munich currently sit comfortably at the top of the Bundesliga with 69 points, nine points clear of Dortmund, with five games left to play. The reds managed a 1-0 win against Augsburg after a second-half penalty from Robert Lewandowski on Saturday last week. If they can hold the position after the five remaining matches, Bayern Munich will have won the title ten times consecutively.

On the other side, Villarreal are in 7th position following a 1-1 draw against Athletic Bilbao, eleven points shy of Champions League qualification in the coming 2022/23 season, with seven matches remaining. It does not matter if they do not finish top four in La Liga if they manage to pull miracles and emerge European Champions this season. It seems far-fetched, but they managed to reach the quarter-finals after being grouped with Manchester United and Atalanta. After all, they did win the Europa League and took Chelsea, last season’s Champions League winners, to penalties in the UEFA Super Cup, where they ended up losing.

In their last three matchups, Bayern Munich have won twice and lost once. With five goals scored in their previous meeting and a rather prime Lewandowski, Bayern will walk into Allianz Arena as the favorites to proceed to the semi-finals. You can count on Lewandowski to rise to the occasion. The 33-year-old is arguably on top form with 12 goals in nine Champions League matches and 32 in 29 Bundesliga matches this season. 

Bayern Munich will play without Tolisso following an injury. Julian Nagelsmann has almost the whole squad fit and ready for Tuesday night. Similarly, Villarreal will play without Alberto Moreno, who is out on injury.

Last week's 1-0 defeat came as a shock to us. However, Bayern Munich remains the likely side to proceed to the semi-finals. Lewandowski ought to make a statement on Tuesday night. On the other side, Villarreal will walk into Allianz Arena with a one-goal cushion. Unai Emery’s boys seem to thrive against big clubs. They gave Manchester United a hard time in the group stage matches and knocked out Juventus in their round of sixteen tie. This is a clash full of expectations and emotions. Will Villarreal proceed to the semifinals of the Champions League or will Bayern live up to the billing?
