Champions League Quarter Final Preview: Bayern Versus Villareal Leg Two

After a tough loss against the Yellow Submarine, the Bavarians are now playing in their home arena for the second leg of this Champions League fixture.

The first leg had Danjuma score for Emery’s side as they shockingly beat the Bavarians in Spain. However the second leg is played in the Allianz Arena, in which Bayern are unbeaten in four of the past five fixtures.

Bayern Munich were admittedly poor in the first leg, especially defensively in which Villareal could have scored more than one goal. However, it is unlikely that that Bavarians perform at that level again given their experience and talent.

Though leaky defensively, Bayern have the offensive talent and capabilities to compensate for a poor first leg. Robert Lewandowski alone can score multiple goals in this fixture to turn the tide.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side will likely start Alphonso Davies who had recently come back from injury in the last leg, and Lucas Hernandez who was hurt and missed their last Bundesliga fixture.

Leon Goretzka will also likely be starting in midfield, replacing Musiala as Kimmich’s partner as the in the classic 4-2-3-1 formation.

Emery’s side will likely start Parejo, Lo Celso, and Capoue in the midfield and showed formidable structure and discipline against the Bavarians in the first leg.

It is very likely that we get a 4-1 (4-2 Bayern on aggregate) score as the Bavarians will be looking to score multiple times in one match, while it is also likely that Bayern concede a goal due to a poor defensive play, or a unlucky deflection.
