Bayern Munich vs Villarreal

Tip Bayern Munich – Villarreal

Bayern Munich have to come from down in the return leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter final tie against Spanish side Villarreal. The German giants, playing at home, will be looking to recover from the 1-0 loss at the Estadio de la Ceramica. In the first leg they were dominated and even Julian Nagelsmann admitted they were lucky to lose by a slim margin. Things will have to change here, and Bayern warmed up for the game with a 1-0 win at home to Augsburg in the Bundesliga. The German giants rarely fail to score; the loss to Villarreal was the first time they failed to score in 26 matches across all competitions. They go to this game with eight wins in their last 10 matches at home and the last two have produced clean sheets. In 13 straight Champions League matches at home, Bayern have scored two or more goals, and lost just once.

Villarreal have struggled domestically but in the Champions League they’ve turned on the style when needed to. Ahead of this game, they slipped again in the 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao and will be hoping to minimize mistakes against the German giants. They have one clean sheet in the last four matches but in the Champions League they are unbeaten in the last four matches. If they can extend this run, then definitely the team that won the Europa League last season will be advancing to the Champions League semi finals. In their nine matches in the Champions League this season, Villarreal have only failed to score in one – a 2-0 home loss to Manchester United. Away from home, in the Champions League, Villarreal have three straight wins coming into this game; they’ve scored three or more goals in those three wins, the most recent a 3-0 thumping of Juventus in Turin.
