Villarreal have defied the odds again. Unai Emery’s side have knocked six-time European champions Bayern Munich out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage thanks to a late goal from Samuel Chukwueze.

The La Liga team, who held a 1-0 lead going into the second-leg, conceded in the second-half after a trademark goal from the prolific Robert Lewandowski but in dramatic fashion, the Yellow Submarine scored an 89th minute to go through.

Earlier this week, former Arsenal boss Unai Emery said it was “the greatest challenge of my career” coming up against Bundesliga champions Bayern, and despite their side only having two shots on target across two legs, Villarreal scooped a historic win.

Emery, whose dream is to one day win the Champions League, received a huge amount of praise after the Bayern result on Tuesday.
