Bayern Munich faces Villarreal in a must-win match at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday in the second leg of the quarter-final of the UEFA Champions League.
Bayern Munich was far from their best this weekend during their 1-0 victory over Augsburg thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s second-half penalty goal.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side will need at least two goals before they can progress to the next semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. The Bavarians were lucky to concede only a goal at Villarreal as the host squandered a lot of chances to put the tie to bed.
Villarreal on the other hand needs to avoid defeat to progress to the semi-finals. The visitors will reflect on the missed chances in the first leg should Bayern kick them out of the Champions League.
The Yellow Submarines sit seventh on the La Liga table,8 points shy of European football after a 1-1 draw with Athletic Club.
