Preview: Arnaut Danjuma’s close range effort was the difference in Spain as Villarreal sneaked ahead in the tie courtesy of a 1-0 victory over a Bayern Munich outfit that was surprisingly not up to task. Julian Nagelmann’s men have the opportunity to atone in Germany, however, the 2019/20 Champions League winners seeking swift redemption for suffering their first away loss in the competition for five years.

Bayern Munich – Die Rotten to reverse their pain in Spain?

Manager and captain were in unison as both tried to pick the bones of a 1-0 loss which marked the club’s first away from home in Europe since 2017. The pair, then, essentially relieved the margin of defeat wasn’t greater following an uncharacteristically poor night at the office in Spain. Fortunately there are ninety more minutes in the tie, and it says much about their record in Germany that they remain favourites to qualify.

That first-leg display belied Bayern’s group stage exploits, in which they won all six fixtures by a combined score of 22-3. Meanwhile they’ve been infallible hosts so far. Their stunning 7-1 blitzing of Austrians FC Salzburg in the previous round bringing their record in Europe this season in Munich to four wins from as many matches. Ominously, the winning margin in each said victory was always at least three.

Key Stat: Germany’s record champions and current Bundesliga leaders, closing in on their 32nd league championship, have racked up five or more goals in three of their four Champions League home games in 2021-22. The outlier a 3-0 success over Barcelona.


Draw & Over 3.5 Goals



Villarreal – Unai Emery to claim yet another big name away scalp?

No club still in contention to lift European football’s most coveted prize has featured in fewer quarter-finals than Villarreal. Undeterred, however, by any lack of pedigree, the Yellow Submarine delivered a near perfect performance out in Spain, with the only criticism of them being that they only managed the one goal. Fear not, though, as away from home is where this team has produced its best work.

Six of the ten points the Spanish side accrued in this season’s group stage were secured away from Spain. A stunning 3-0 scoreline in Turin against Juventus in the Round of 16 second-leg bringing their record to three away wins out of four thus far. Scoring across all four such outings, which even includes their harsh defeat at Old Trafford when beaten only at the death by a 95th-minute Cristiano Ronaldo suckerpunch.

Key Stat: Villarreal haven’t been shy in putting their best foot forward in away European contests this term, scoring three or more in three out of four Champions League away matches (W3 L1) in 2021-22. The exception a 2-1 loss at Old Trafford to Man Utd.

Bayern Munich Vs Villarreal Betting Advice

This second leg is fascinating poised. We could be in for quite the contest in Munich, where hosts Bayern Munich must win if they are to overturn a slender aggregate deficit. They are expected to do just that. That is because Julian Nagelsmann’s charges boast a fearsome record as hosts in this season’s competition, winning all four Allianz Arena contests by a 3+ margin whilst plundering five goals on average.


Bayern Munich Vs Villarreal – Key Facts:

  • Prior to the first-leg, which Villarreal won 1-0 at El Madrigal, Bayern Munich boasted a perfect record of two wins against the Spanish side. Both (3-1h, 2-0a) came in the 2011/12 Champions League group stage.
  • Although Bayern Munich will be confident ahead of the return leg, having scored 20 in recording four wins from four in Munich in this season’s competition, they will be wary of a Villarreal side boasting away victories against Atalanta, Juventus and Young Boys.
  • Indeed, it is the Spanish visitors who hold the aces following Arnaut Danjuma’s solitary strike first time around. Encouragingly for the La Liga side, they have progressed on 15 of the 16 occasions in which they won the first leg at home.


However, anyone anticipating one-way traffic in Munich could be in for a rude awakening. Villarreal have been at their best when travelling, with wins at Atalanta, Young Boys and even Juventus – notching at least three goals each time. In fact, the Yellow Submarine are yet to produce an away blank, suggesting they can do what Benfica and Salzburg also managed: register a goal at the Allianz Arena.
