The Bayern Munich vs Villarreal live stream sees the unfancied Spanish side attempt to complete a Champions League giant-killing of sorts against the mighty Bayern Munich.
Last week, Villarreal were superb in winning 1-0, with the German champions well below par. Arnaut Danjuma scored the winner early on, but they could easily have had more, with Gerard Moreno hitting the woodwork and a goal from Francis Coquelin ruled out.
Bayern will need to step up their game here — but with Robert Lewandowski leading the line, they have the firepower to make up the deficit. With no away goals rule in the Champions League, Bayern know that a win by one goal will at least take the game to extra time and penalties, so they can afford to go all-out in search of victory.
Here's how they line up:
Bayern Munich: Neuer, Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Sane, Kimmich, Goretzka, Coman, Musiala, Muller, Lewandowski.
Villarreal: Rulli, Foyth, Albiol, Torres, Estupinan, Lo Celso, Capoue, Parejo, Coquelin, Gerard, Danjuma.
Can Bayern get the goals they need to prevail or will Villarreal continue their fairytale campaign? Find out by watching the Bayern Munich vs Villarreal live stream.
