Unai Emery would initially opt for a system of four in defense with Juan Foyth, Raúl Albiol, Pau Torres and Pervis Estupiñán. As for the midfield, it would have three footballers of the quality of Francis Coquelin, Étienne Capoue and Dani Parejo. Giovani Lo Celso would connect with the center of the field, at the same time that he would do the hooking work to connect with the golden duo of the Yellow Submarine: Gerard Moreno and Arnaut Danjuma.

For his part, Julian Nagelsmann would start with Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, Lucas Hernández and Alphonso Davies in the rear. The double pivot would be formed by Joshua Kimmich and the promising Jamal Musiala. Ahead, a set of aces from Serge Gnabry, Thomas Müller and Kingsley Coman. As is evident, the offensive reference would be a Robert Lewandowski for whom FC Barcelona yearns.

The peck of Arnaut Danjuma

The first incursion of the Germans would be carried out by Coman, who tried to find depth in his pairing with Estupiñán. The initial approach would show the German superiority in possession, although the people from Castellón came out quickly on the counterattack. In one of his transitions in attack, Emery’s squad would take the lead with a goal from a Danjuma that would deflect Parejo’s shot (1 – 0).

The people of Munich were suffering unspeakably when it came to withdrawing from their defensive system, while Villarreal began to gain presence with the ball. All this, of course, thanks to the role of Coquelin, Capoue, Parejo and Lo Celso. For his part, Foyth would be very vigilant in bolting down an onslaught from Nagelsmann’s men. Without a doubt, Emery was winning the chess game from the bench against the former RB Leipzig player.

Bayern Munich comes out alive The ceramic

Francis Coquelin would surprise Manuel Neuer with a center that would be poisoned and would end up piercing the bottom of the brilliant archer’s mail. However, the goal would not show up in the electronic because the play would be invalidated due to an illegal position. After the restart, Villarreal would once again capture a beautiful staging for the resignation of a Bayern Munich that was being overwhelmed. Gerard Moreno would be left with honey on his lips, once he hit it (from the front of the area) he would be repelled by the wood.

A Gerard who, incidentally, was about to bring to fruition the fantastic assistance of his partner Danjuma. Alfonso Pedraza, after going head-to-head with Upamecano, would crash the ball into the side of the net. Gerard didn’t narrowly take advantage of a mistake by Neuer (with a shot from long range), while the locals continued to do a lot of damage to Bayern on the counterattack. Finally, the victory of a Villarreal who will go to Munich with the mission of materializing his ticket for the semis of the champions.
