The German giants Bayern Munich are all set to travel to Spain this week, as it takes on hosts Villarreal in the first leg of the quarterfinals in the UEFA Champions League.
Villarreal might be at the 7th spot in the La Liga tables this year, but it is not a team that is to be taken lightly. The Europa League champions of the 2020-21 season finished second in Group F and faced Juventus in the round of 16. After playing out a 1-1 draw in the first leg, Villarreal came back strongly in the second leg and won with a 3-0 score, knocking out the Italian giants with an aggregate score of 4-1.
However, facing Bayern Munich is a different ball game altogether, and coach Unai Emery will have to eke out a special performance from his team in order to gain an early advantage. The fans will be pretty disappointed with the team’s recent performance against relegation-threatened Cadiz, which it lost to 1-0. However, the players are sure to shrug off that defeat as a one-off event and take on the field with a positive frame of mind.
Bayern Munich finished the group stage at the top of Group E, winning each of its 6 games, and faced Salzburg in the round of 16. After drawing the first leg 1-1, Bayern decimated the opposition in the second leg, beating them 7-1 and advancing into the quarterfinals in style. In its last game, Bayern beat its neighbors Union Berlin 4-0 and will be feeling quite confident going to Spain. Bayern is currently the top team in Bundesliga, enjoying a 6 point lead over Dortmund.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Villarreal C. F. vs Bayern Munich UEFA Champions League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Estadio de la Ceramica, Villarreal, on 6th April 2022.
Despite putting up a strong performance in the group stages and the round of 16, most football betting sites are predicting an uphill task for Villarreal. Left-back Alberto Moreno, who is suffering from a ruptured ligament, is doubtful for this game.
However, all eyes will be on the update of Robert Lewandowski’s injury prior to this game. The prolific striker from Poland has scored a total of 43 goals across Bundesliga and Champions League and is suffering from a rib injury. His absence could bring a huge sigh of relief for the hosts.
Nevertheless, the visitors have enough firepower to overcome any challenge thrown up by Villarreal.
Bet on Bayern Munich to win.
Bayern Munich is probably the most prolific scorer in football right now. As mentioned earlier, it has scored 30 goals so far in the Champions League, and 81 goals in the Bundesliga. Villarreal's defenses will find it difficult to stop the German juggernaut, and it has been safe to bet on more than 2.5 goals whenever Bayern Munich has played this season.
There is no such thing as a sure thing, though.
