Samuel Chukwueze of the Nigerian Super Eagles with the equalizer and the supposed winning goal as Unai Emery’s men knock Bayern Munich out of Champions League on aggregate 2:1 scores.
Unai Emery made no changes to his team that stunned Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final last week.
The former Arsenal manager called back Gerard Moreno, Francis Coquelin, and Arnaut Danjuma after opting to rotate for the La Liga tie with Athletic Bilbao.
Julian Nagelsmann of Bayern Munich appeared to go to a three-man defense in order to fill his team with attackers. Following the unimpressive Bundesliga win against Augsburg, Kinglsey Coman replaced Serge Gnabry, and Jamal Musiala was reintroduced to the starting lineup.
The unstoppable Robert Lewandowski will lead the charge, as he always does. After a lackluster performance in the first leg, the Polish forward helped put Red Bull Salzburg to the sword in the final round, scoring the fastest-ever Champions League hat-trick in a 7-1 win.
This one is finely poised, with Villarreal holding a 1-0 lead heading to the Allianz Arena. Bayern Munich has been huffing and puffing, but Villarreal has held firm thus far.
The first half got off to a fast start, with Sane coming near with a free-kick.
Sane’s excellent play finds Upamecano in the area, but the defender shoots wide from close range. He should be scoring whether he is a defender or not.
Villarreal’s dreadful out-of-the-back play allows Bayern to punish them.With a strike by Bayern Munich’s prolific goal scorer Robert Lewandowski in the 58th minute, the game is tied.
In the last several minutes, I’ve walked so many blocks away from Villarreal. Bayern has their tails between their legs.
Bayern’s greatest performance in the tie came in the 60th minute. Villarreal is only waiting to see if they can equalize and make it a 1:3 aggregate score.
Moreno just couldn’t seem to get anything to stay; when he punts up field, the ball starts coming back. A close range ball was missed by Kingsley Coman.
In the 81st minute, Bayern Munich coach Nagelsmann can be seen on the bench, encouraging his players on. He appears stressed to say the least.
Gnabry on for Musiala to ratchet up the tension and, most likely, produce the winner.
Danjuma, who has been in great form lately, comes close to breaking the tie yet again!
Chukwueze, who has just entered the game, rushes forward, but Neuer does a good job of sweeping things up before scoring the game-winning goal in the 88th minute.
Parejo, Lo Celso, and Moreno combine for a fantastic break that sets him up for a close-range finish.
Bayern Munich,. The 5 time Champions League winner have been knocked out of the 2022 UEFA Champions League by struggling Villarreal thanks to wonder kid Samuel Chukwueze!
