Villarreal eliminated Bayern Munich from the Champions League on Tuesday, with Samuel Chukwueze’s 88th-minute goal drawing the Spaniards 1-1 in the second leg of their quarter-final tie at the Allianz Arena, sending them through 2-1 on aggregate.

After Villarreal’s 1-0 first-leg triumph, Robert Lewandowski put Bayern ahead on the night to draw the tie on aggregate, and extra time loomed until Chukwueze struck.

Bayern Munich will exit the Champions League in the quarter-finals for the second year in a row as a result of this defeat.

For the first time since 2006, Villarreal has advanced to the semi-finals and will face either Liverpool or Benfica in the final four. The English side leads 3-1 going into the second game at Anfield on Wednesday.

Apart from Lewandowski’s goal early in the second half, Unai Emery’s Villarreal took up everything Bayern threw at them.

Bayern had dominated the game for the majority of the time before Chukwueze scored just four minutes after coming in.

Bayern got out to a fast start, but Villarreal’s defense was ready for anything.

Bayern got out to a fast start, but Villarreal’s defense was ready for anything.

Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann switched to a three-man defense instead of a back four.

For the majority of the first half, Villarreal were pinned in their own half as Benjamin Pavard, Dayot Upamecano, and Lucas Hernandez commanded play from the back.

Despite their dominance of possession, Bayern’s sole clear chance in a goalless first half came from Jamal Musiala’s header straight at Villarreal goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli.

The game’s first booking was given to Lewandowski, who was largely well marshalled.

The Villarreal back four fought tirelessly throughout the game, but left-back Pervis Estupinan had an especially busy first half as Leroy Sane probed down the flank.

In the 52nd minute, Bayern eventually broke the deadlock.

A stray pass from defense only made it to Kingsley Coman, who then passed the ball to Thomas Mueller.

The ball was slid into the path of Lewandowski, who managed to get his shot past two defenders and Rulli, who was diving.

To celebrate his 13th goal in ten Champions League games this season, the Poland striker let forth a primal scream.

Mueller came close with a diving header but was left with his head in his hands, as was Coman when he fired over soon after.

Serge Gnabry and Alphonso Davies were brought in by Nagelsmann in an attempt to get a crucial second goal before the end of the 90 minutes.

Villarreal, on the other hand, startled the home crowd when Gerard Moreno broke down the left flank.

Chukwueze sent a low cross flying over Neuer, allowing the Spaniards to advance.
