Villarreal stun Bayern to reach semis

Samuel Chukwueze of Villarreal CF celebrates after scoring their team's first goal during the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Leg Two match between Bayern MĂĽnchen and Villarreal CF at Football Arena Munich on April 12, 2022 in Munich, Germany.

Samuel Chukwueze scored a late winner in the tie as Villarreal stunned Bayern Munich to reach the Champions League semi-finals for the first time in 16 years.

Unai Emery masterminded a 1-0 first-leg win in Spain, but a dominant Bayern looked seemingly in control once Robert Lewandowski broke the deadlock in the 52nd minute at the Allianz Arena.

But, with just his side's second shot on target across both legs, Chukwueze levelled on the break in the 88th minute to give Villarreal the lead on aggregate - and earn them an historic victory against the six-time European champions.

They will face the winner of Liverpool versus Benfica in the last four, a contest Jurgen Klopp's side currently lead 3-1 on aggregate.
