Bayern Munich vs Villarreal H2H: 2nd Leg Match Preview and Prediction

Bayern Munich vs Villarreal: H2H Preview

Bayern Munich will square off against Spanish giants Villarreal in the second leg of the Champions League on Tuesday night at Allianz Arena.  

The six-time European Champions will look to overturn the one-goal deficit at home as the German giants suffered their first Champions League defeat at the hands of Villarreal. 

Bayern have always given hard times to opponents at Allianz Arena, and over-turning the 1-0 deficit shouldn’t be a challenging task for a team like Bayern Munich. 

On the other hand, Villarreal have been different; they have been formidable in the Champions League but fared poorly in La Liga; they have been ambiguous in all competition, and Unai Emery’s men will have to give heart and soul in this fixture as they did in against Juventus in their home soil.

Bayern Munich vs Villarreal: H2H Prediction 

For the first time, Bayern Munich will be playing under pressure, and they go into second-leg with one goal down. Robert Lewandowski will have to set up on occasion and spearhead his team in the next round. 

Villarreal knows what the atmosphere will be like at Allianz Arena, and they shouldn’t let the pressure get the better of them. 

They reached the quarter-final of the Champions League and are thriving with their current form; if they maintain their winning mentality, then Villarreal can defy the odds and cause a huge upset. 

We are siding with Villarreal in this contest. 

Prediction: Bayern Munich 1-2 Villarreal
