Villarreal have knocked out Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinal.

The Spanish side went into the match tonight in Germany leading 1-0 from the first leg, but six-time European Champions Bayern, who had won 12 of their previous 13 home games in the competition, drew level after 52 minutes when Müller produced a fine pass to set up Lewandowski, who stroked home off the post.

While Villarreal had looked mostly comfortable soaking up the pressure in the first half, the second was a different affair, with Unai Emery’s team struggling, making simple mistakes and losing possession constantly as Bayern heaped on the pressure.

Chukwueze wins it for Villarreal

With extra-time beckoning at 1-1, Gerard Moreno set up Samuel Chukwueze who fired into the roof of the net and put Villarreal level on the night and ahead on aggregate.

And the Yellow Submarine, as they are known, held on for a famous victory and a return to the semifinals for the first time in 16 years. They will now play Benfica or Liverpool in the semifinal, with the English outfit leading 3-1 after the first leg in Portugal.
