Villarreal surprised

Although Bayern claimed possession at the start of the game, it was the home side who took the lead after just 8 minutes. Davies was easily outplayed by a one-two between Moreno and Lo Celso. The latter crossed to Parejo, who in turn kicked Danjuma. The Dutch international then tapped the ball in from close range.

After Villarreal’s early goal, the visitors seemed a bit upset. Halfway through the first half, Bayern were the better team again, but their attempts failed to materialize. The Germans played a harmless first half.

Just before half-time, Bayern got away well. Coquelin’s pass landed in goal. But the world goal was rightly disallowed for offside. It was so after 2-0.

In the second half, the best chances are again for the home side. Moreno kicked the post, Danjuma lingered too long in the box and Pedraza went just wide. Bayern played a better second half, but the attempts on goal were again scarce. Star player Lewandowski played an anonymous match.

Nagelsmann and his men will have to work hard at home next week. But all the cards are still on the table.
