Bayern Munich Form and Team News

Bayern Munich are having a stellar season by their standards and are almost certain to retain their Bundesliga crown. In Europe, they have been somewhat unconvincing in the playoffs away from home, drawing at Salzburg and falling to defeat against Villarreal, two teams considered to be well below their level.

They bounced back with a slender victory against Augsburg on Saturday and look forward to Villarreal’s visit, as the tie yet hangs in the balance. Robert Lewandowski remains top of the UCL goalscoring charts with 12 goals and 3 assists.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Corentin Tolisso, Alphonso Davies, and Bouna Sarr are all out with injuries and may not feature against Villarreal.

Unai Emery’s men are flying high in the Champions League, picking up wins against Juventus and now, Bayern Munich. The Yellow Submarine are developing a giant killer attitude, further underlining the experience of their manager in continental football.

Villarreal have the advantage going into the second leg and will hope to commit everything against a Bayern Munich side known to be lethal at home. They struggle with consistency in La Liga but have produced some fine performances in Europe. Talisman Arnaut Danjuma has been excellent in Europe with 6 goals and 1 assist.

Juan Foyth, Alberto Moreno, Boulaye Dia, and Pau Torres are sidelined with injuries and may not make the trip to Germany.

Villarreal snatched a shock 1–0 victory in the first leg and are poised to cause a likely upset as they travel to Germany.

Here are our tips for this fixture:

Tip: Bayern Munich to Win @ 1.27

Bayern Munich usually win games like these, as they know how to turn on the heat and turn games into routs quickly. The German champions have scored the most goals of any team in the Champions League and have Robert Lewandowski in excellent goalscoring form. Bayern Munich to win is placed at 1.27 odds on the Parimatch sportsbook.

Tip: Goal in Both Halves @ 1.44

We expect both halves to be highly contested, especially as Bayern look to find a way back into the tie. Villarreal have already proved to be a hard nut to crack, and Bayern Munich will not have an easy outing, even with their excellence in front of goal. We expect at least one goal in both halves from either side, and the odds for this outcome are on the Melbet sportsbook at 1.44 odds.


Villareal travel to Germany with a slender lead to face a Bayern Munich side who will be in a vengeful mood. We expect a lively football game like in the first leg in Spain.
