The 0-1 defeat in the first leg at El Madrigal made Bayern win with a minimum of 2 goals to continue. Villarreal once won Juventus 3 goals did not remove away from home in the round of 16, but compared to Bayern, “Golden Submarine” is still rated weaker.
Therefore, Unai Emery’s teachers and students chose to enter the game cautiously. Villarreal’s concrete block stopped Bayern, although the Allianz Arena team created a lot of pressure with 60% of the time controlling the ball.
The difference of Villarreal is that when regaining control, the Spanish representative does not break the ball away from the goal, but calmly coordinates and holds the rhythm to push the Bayern squad back. This is also the way to play to help Villarreal stand in the way of Man Utd and Juventus in the Champions League this season.
Bayern stalemate throughout the first half. After the break, coach Nagelsmann urged his students to speed up and “Gray Lobster” got the opening goal. In the 52nd minute, Thomas Muller poked a slot for Robert Lewandowski to get down to receive the ball before finally sending the ball into the net, opening the scoring for Bayern.
However, it was Bayern who made the mistake that coach Nagelsmann mentioned when talking about Villarreal in the first leg, which was not being able to strike the finishing blow to the opponent. Bayern shot 15 times but could not get a second goal, only to pay the price at the end of the game.
In the 88th minute, Gerrard Moreno made an accurate cross to let Samuel Chukwueze escape and hit Manuel Neuer’s net to equalize the score 1-1 for Villarreal. This is Villarreal’s first and only shot on target in this match.
Bayern pressed to attack in the minutes of injury time, but it was too late. Villarreal has more than enough wisdom to defend a fragile achievement. Winning the final 2-1 after 2 matches, coach Emery’s teachers and students were present in the semi-finals. This is one of the biggest surprises in the Champions League this season.
Final results: Bayern Munich 1-1 Villarreal (Lewandowski 52′, Chukwueze 88′) – Villarreal reached the semi-finals with a total score of 2-1.
