Bayern Munich have been eliminated from the Champions League on a 2-1 aggregate after being to a 1-1 draw by Villarreal on Tuesday night.

Like the first leg, Villarreal’s plan was to spring into life on the counter-attack, and they should have moved further ahead in the tie, with Arnaut Danjuma and Gerrard Moreno both wasteful.

Robert Lewandowski took advantage of some sloppy defending to put Bayern ahead on the night, and level the tie on aggregate after being put through by Thomas Müller. It was his 13th goal in the competition this season.

Bayern might have then grabbed the all-important second goal, but Müller, unmarked and no more than eight yards out, could only send Sané’s delicious cross wide as the hosts continued to create chances.

Villareal however was not willing to give up home and struck the hammer blow three minutes from time through Samuel Chukwueze. Bursting down the left, Moreno set up the Nigerian who thrashed to ball past Manuel Neuer to see Emery take a side into the semi-finals of the UCL for the first time in his managerial career.
