Can Bayern Sink The Yellow Submarine?
After winning last season’s edition of the Europa League, Villarreal find themselves in the last eight of the Champions League’s latest offering. Will more European success make it to El Madrigal.
All To Play For
After the dust had settled on the recent Champions League draw, Bayern Munich would have no doubt been pleased with their last eight pairing and with Villarreal lying in wait, they have avoided one of the competitions’ biggest remaining efforts.
However, that same logic could also have been applied to the Round of 16 and Juventus being paired with Unai Emery’s men, many would have expected the Old Lady of Turin to advance to the next stage.
Of course, the Old Lady is not singing anymore and with last season’s Europa League winners continuing their continental march, they will now look to dispose another of Europe’s true footballing elite.
Something that will not be easy when you consider the opposition they will face this evening and with Robert Lewandowski primed and ready, the Polish hitman will look to add to his already impressive tally of goals this season.
A tally that currently stands at 43 across both the Bundesliga and the Champions League and with that haul being earned in just 36 outings, the former Borussia Dortmund forward is displaying the kind of form that won him the FIFA best award at the start of 2022.
While although personal accolades are of some interest to Lewandowski, progress in Europe is more important and although a winner from this tie will not be found this evening, the outcome could also be largely defined at the same time.
Which is why backing Bayern to win on Spanish soil and their talisman to score anytime in 90 minutes in a Bet365 bet builder, is currently priced at 20/21 and that price, it must certainly be worth your Wednesday night consideration.
Because going into this game, the red machine of Bayern has run roughshod over opposition both home and abroad and although there was a slight hiccup during the first leg of their Round of 16 meeting with RB Salzburg, they certainly made up for it in the return.
A 7-1 victory was subsequently recorded at the Allianz Arena, as Bayern progressed by virtue of an eventual 8-2 aggregate score and their display against the Austrian champions showed just how ruthless they can be.
While it is this ruthless aggression that Villarreal manager Unai Emery must try to stop tonight and although it could be considered something of a thankless task, the former Arsenal boss will certainly be up for it.
With that said, being up for it and being able to complete are two very different things and therefore, a 2-0 win for Bayern at odds of 17/2 with bet365, is also something that would look get as a Wednesday wager.
