Match Facts

  1. Bayern Munich’s defeat against Villarreal in the first leg was their 20th against a Spanish team in European competition, their most against sides from a specific nation. Both of the previous occasions they have lost both legs of a UEFA Champions League knockout tie have been against Spanish opposition (v Real Madrid in the 2013-14 semi-finals and 2016-17 quarter-finals).
  2. This will be Villarreal’s second ever away game against a German side in the UEFA Champions League – the previous one was also against Bayern Munich, with the Yellow Submarine losing 1-3 in the 2011-12 group stage.
  3. Bayern Munich are looking to progress from a UEFA Champions League knockout tie after losing the first leg for the first time since the 2014-15 quarter-finals (1-3 away, 6-1 at home v FC Porto). The German side have been eliminated in each of the last five instances since beating FC Porto, with four of their eliminations coming against Spanish teams (Barcelona, Atlético Madrid and Real Madrid x2).
  4. Bayern Munich are looking to avoid being eliminated in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals in consecutive seasons, having also lost at this stage in 2020-21 (v Paris Saint-Germain). Prior to last season, Bayern had only been eliminated in one of their last nine ties in the quarter-finals of the competition (against Real Madrid in 2016-17).
  5. Villarreal manager Unai Emery is looking to progress beyond the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in his career. The only previous time his side won a first leg in the knockout stages of the competition (Paris Saint-Germain 4-0 Barcelona in 2016-17), they became the first side ever to be eliminated in the knockout stages of the competition after winning the first leg by 4+ goals.
  6. In the reverse fixture, Villarreal became the first team to keep a clean sheet against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League since Liverpool in February 2019. Bayern haven’t gone consecutive games without scoring in the competition since the 2013-14 semi-finals against Real Madrid (0-1 away, 0-4 at home).
  7. Only four of Bayern Munich’s 22 shots in the first leg against Villarreal were on target – the fewest by a team to attempt more than 20 shots in a UEFA Champions League game this season.
  8. Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has scored two hat-tricks in the UEFA Champions League this season, with both coming in home games (v Benfica and RB Salzburg). Only Cristiano Ronaldo in 2015-16 (for Real Madrid) has ever scored three hat-tricks within a single campaign in the competition.
  9. Villarreal’s Arnaut Danjuma has scored six goals in the UEFA Champions League this season, with only three players remaining in the 2021-22 competition having netted more (Robert Lewandowski 12, Karim Benzema 11 and Mohamed Salah 8). Not since 2004-05 has a Dutch player scored more than six times in a UEFA Champions League campaign, with Ruud van Nistelrooy (8) and Roy Makaay (7) both doing so that season.
  10. Leroy Sané has been directly involved in 12 goals for Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League this season (six goals, six assists). Since 2003-04 (as far back as data is available), this is the joint-most direct goal involvements by a German player in a single season in the competition, along with Mario Gomez in 2011-12 (12 goals, while also playing for Bayern).
