Having already upset the odds in this season’s Champions League, Villarreal will seek another memorable European scalp when Bayern Munich visits the Estadio de la Ceramica for the first leg of their quarterfinal tie Wednesday night.
Unai Emery’s team delivered a remarkable display against Juventuss to secure their spot in the last eight, while the Bavarians eventually ran out comfy prizewinners over Red Bull Salzburg.
After being rewarded with a match against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinals, Villarreal have failed to keep the impetus going following their historic night in Turin – following up a 1-0 loss to Cadiz with an equally gray 2-0 flop to Levante at the weekend.
As their The League luck took for worse last few weeks, top-six fate is now out of handsbut they persist as a dark force in the Champions Leaguewhere they were knocked out in the quarterfinals once before to Arsenal in 2008-09.
Bayern’s expected Bundesliga title is not in the bag yet. Though, the reigning champions ensured they stayed out of view of Borussia Dortmund by beating Freiburg 4-1 at the weekend. They are seeking to avoid a second consecutive quarterfinal exit in the Champions League.
Pushing eight games unbeaten in all competitions is a surefire manner to encourage the confidence in the squad – not that Bayern needs it in general – certainly not since September 2017 have the German giants suffered an upset away from home in the Champions League.
Bayern and Villarreal met for the first time in the 2011-12 Champions League group stagewith the Bundesliga champion securing a 2-0 win away from home before a 3-1 success in Bavaria en route to that year’s final, where they finished as runner-ups.
