Villarreal have torn up the form book with a 1-0 Champions League quarter final first leg win over Bayern Munich.
The Yellow Submarine were rated as firm outsiders ahead of kick off on the Spanish East Coast with Unai Emery’s side more than happy to play the underdog card.
📅 Last season, Arnaut Danjuma was playing for #AFCB in the Championship.

With Bayern unable to muster a response, Villarreal were desperately unlucky not to extend their lead either side of the break.
Villarreal’s inability to find a second goal is likely to be a real post-game source of frustration for Emery as they still face a challenge to secure a last four spot in the second leg in Bavaria next week.
