Bayern Munich vs Villarreal predictions and betting tips

Both teams are in good form ahead of this match. Villarreal did a very good job to get a win at home, but the Job is not done as they have to face the German side away. Bayern Munich have struggled to score goals in their last two matches judging by their standards. Their match winner in the previous game wasn’t an open play goal.

Unai Emery rotated the squad in their last match, changed the starting lineup including the goalkeeper to make sure players are well rested and fit for the second leg. Even though Bayern Munich might have the home advantage, you can’t look down on Villarreal. The Yellow Submarine shocked the Bavarians, beating them 1-0 in the first leg.

Predictions for this match are Asian Handicap (+1.5) on Villarreal. The Spanish team are definitely going to defend this lead by any possible means. If they don’t win, I don’t think they’ll lose by two or more goals in regular time.
