Villareal stun Bayern to reach CL semi finals
Samuel Chukwueze's late goal in normal time sent Villareal through to the Champions League Semi Finals with the loss of Bayern Munich. Villareal’s stubborn defence didn’t allow Bayern with many chances in the first half. But Robert Lewandowski brought the German giants back in the game with his first chance seven minutes into the second half. The goal came from broken play when Daniel Parejo’s ball was intercepted by Coman in Villareal’s half before Muller set up Lewandowski to net his 13th goal of the season. Though Bayern had the majority of possession in the Villarreal half. After half time Dayot Upamecano and Thomas Muller had clear chances on either side of the goal but both failed to make goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli work .
Extra-time loomed until on the break Gerard Moreno produced a fine pass to the back post where Chukwueze slammed the ball home into the roof of the net sending Villarreal to their first Champions League semi-final in 16 years.“We are a small city but they are strong players,” Villarreal coach Unai Emery said in the press match conference. After 1-0 win in the first leg, Villareal showed great composure to keep the former champions in check and secure a 2-1 win on aggregate.
