Following a shock 1:0 loss in last week´s first leg, Bayern Munich welcomes Villarreal to the Allianz Arena for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final. 

While Bayern were expected to make relatively easy work of the Spaniards coming into this tie, Villarreal performed exceptionally to claim a surprise 1:0 advantage ahead of Tuesday's return fixture.

Failing to score for the first time since a 5:0 DFB Pokal defeat at Monchengladbach in October, Bayern lacked their usual pace and power in attack and will need a much-improved display if they are to take their place in the semi-finals.

Bayern also struggled to hit top gear this past weekend, needing an 82nd-minute penalty from Robert Lewandowski to see off a stubborn Augsburg at the Allianz and it remains to be seen if the home side can again find their best form with Villarreal certainly capable of frustrating their more illustrious opponents. 

Villarreal have struggled on the road in recent months, losing 5 of their last 8 away matches however they have managed to win each of their last 3 away CL fixtures including sensational wins at Atalanta (2:3) and Juventus (0:3) and will fancy their chances of scoring a big upset. It should be noted though that Villarreal lost each of their previous 7 away CL fixtures prior to those 3 recent victories.

Ultimately, this is a tough fixture to call. Bayern, while still favourites to progress, have been subdued in recent weeks and they may need extra time to see off an opponent that has shown their defensive qualities this season, including a 0:0 draw at Real Madrid last September.

As such, we´re taking Villarreal on the +2 handicap at big 2.1 odds with Emery´s Yellow Submarine unlikely to sink under the pressure-cooker atmosphere at the always intense Allianz.

Player to Watch - Arnaut Groeneveld

Alberto Moreno remains Villarreal's only absentee, while Boulaye Dia remains doubtful having missed the weekend draw with Bilbao. 

Villarreal rested their entire first XI for that fixture and will be full of confidence as they look to secure an unlikely passage to the semi-final stage.
