The Bavarians need to show their best
The Munich club accustomed everyone to attacking and productive football, however, many have already adapted to this style, so problems began to arise. Bayern are one step away from the domestic title, leading by 9 points with five games to go. They beat Augsburg 1-0 in their last outing, with Lewandowski scoring the only goal of the game on 90+2 minutes from the spot-kick. The team needs to play first-choice against uncomfortable and flexible opponents, let’s see how Nagelsmann and his charges handle it. Three players will miss the upcoming battle.
Villarreal believe in themselves
The Yellow Submarine have made a bet on European competitions, because in the Champions League, the club clearly plays better than in the Primera. In the Spanish championship, Villarreal sit seventh, eight points behind the top six. Their last game was a 1-1 draw at home against Athletic Bilbao. Two players will be unable to take to the pitch in the upcoming battle due to injuries. Only a successful performance in the Champions League can save the season, because the team risk missing out on the European Cup.
In the first battle everyone bet on Bayern, even though the team was playing away, Villarreal had the main hope for Emery and his talent. This match was further proof of how clever tactics can overcome class. “The Yellow Submarine scored an early goal and then confidently held off their opponents. If you analyse the match, Villarreal were closer to a second goal than the Bavarians were to equalising, with Neuer’s trademark gaffe when he ran out into the centre of the pitch and gave an unsuccessful pass, the ball flying centimetres from the empty net. In the end, the Yellow Submarine celebrated with a 1-0 win.
Judging by the betting odds, the Bavarians are expected to put crazy pressure and win confidently, Villarreal can play competently in the second leg, taking advantage of the holes in the opponent’s defense. This will be an interesting encounter between opponents of different styles. We suggest betting on a total of more than 3 goals.
