Arnaut Danjuma scored the only goal of the game as Villareal produced one of the shocking football scores of the midweek action in the UEFA Champions League. The former Bournemouth winger gave the hosts a deserved lead in the eighth minute when he deflected in a shot from Daniel Parejo. Bayern Munich on the other hand could not get a hold of the game and struggled to make inroads into the Villareal defense.

Managers Reaction 

Villareal boss Unai Emery: “We are here to try to compete and reach the semi-finals. We are not going to dwell on how well we played today, that we have won and that we have competed and been better against Bayern. I am happy but cautious. We have 90 minutes left and I want to beat Bayern, knowing that it is very difficult. And if I don’t beat them I’m not going to be satisfied, I’m going to be frustrated, regardless of whether we played a good game today.”

Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsman: “Basically we didn’t play a good match today,” he said. “In both defense and attack, we hardly got any rhythm. We didn’t play attacking football in all phases of the match. In the end, we were lucky that we only lost 1-0. They (Villarreal) could have scored one or two more goals. We had one or two situations where we could have scored but we wouldn’t have deserved it 100 percent. Today we just didn’t play well in all areas. But even though the score was 1-0 we still have confidence for the return leg. We will definitely show a different face, we have to and we are capable of doing so. It will definitely be different from how we did today. They (Villarreal) have shown that they can play really well.”
