UCL: Danjuma scores as Villareal beat Bayern 1-0

Bayern have failed to progress from each of their last five ties in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages when they have lost in the first leg.

Arnaut Danjuma's early goal secured a surprise 1-0 victory for Villareal against Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.

Unai Emery's side took the lead after just eight minutes at the El Madrigal Stadium in Spain to leave the six-time champions stunned.

The Yellow Submarine through they'd doubled the lead through Francis Coquelin but his goal was disallowed for offside after a VAR check.

Emery's side failed to extend their advantage by failing to convert a series of chances while Gerard Moreno struck the post.

This win is Villarreal’s first win on home soil in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages since April 2006 (1-0 v Inter Milan).

Bayern will host the Spanish side at the Allianz Arena next week for a place in the semi-finals.

The Bavarians have failed to progress from each of their last five ties in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages when they have lost in the first leg, with four of those five eliminations coming against Spanish teams (Barcelona in 2014-15, Atlético Madrid in 2015-16 and Real Madrid in 2016-17 and 2017-18) - Pool.
