Fans Lash Out At Bayern Munich After A Surprise UCL Defeat Against Villarreal. Bayern Munich was defeated 1-0 by Villarreal in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals at El Madrigal.
The harm was done by Arnaut Danjuma’s excellent close-range strike as the La Liga side brushed off an upset in what was a fast-paced match with both teams swinging hammers and tongs.
Bayern Munich was tipped as significant favorites prior to the game, owing to their tremendous run of form this season. Throughout the Champions League campaign, Robert Lewandowski has been in spectacular goalscoring form, dominating the scoring rankings with twelve goals.
However, he and the rest of Bayern’s team missed the deadly intuition in front of goal on the night, and Villarreal is now in the lead, with the second leg set to take place at the Allianz Arena next week.
Here are some reactions to the UEFA Champions League shocker between Villarreal and Bayern Munich:
The Villarreal v Bayern game is like basketball. Fantastic to watch. Villarreal could easily be 3 or 4 nil up. Incredible.

Looking at the other match, Benzema is making a case that he, and not Lewandowski, is the most inform number 9 on the planet.

Meanwhile, Villarreal are bossing this game against Bayern. They are deservedly ahead.
Spanish football really putting up a fantastic fight this first leg. Massive results for Madrid/Villarreal and only a 1-0 loss to City away for Atleti.
Never underestimate Spanish teams.

The Bundesliga’s behemoths now have their work cut out for them in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. Danjuma’s goal has left them in a vulnerable position as they were heavily favored to win the match against Unai Emery’s men.
They will now need to fortify the Allianz Arena knowing that Villarreal is no wimps. The Bavarians will need Robert Lewandowski to re-establish his scoring touch if they are to avenge their 1-0 defeat.
Villarreal, on the other hand, will be upbeat. They were solid defensively, and every defender dealt with the Bavarians’ threat expertly. Bayern is now under pressure to turn things around.
