The yellow flags were out in full force at La Ceramica last week, but even though Villarreal prevailed by a one-goal margin on the night courtesy of Danjuma’s close-range finish, many fans will feel that the scoreline did not accurately reflect the Yellow Submarine’s domination.

Emery’s side squandered several opportunities to put the tie to bed in the first leg, with Gerard Moreno hitting the post and failing to catch Manuel Neuer out from the halfway line after his failed clearance, but a 1-0 lead against the Bavarians is nothing to be sniffed at.

Julian Nagelsmann‘s side could only prevail by that scoreline in their most recent Bundesliga battle against Augsburg – relying on an 82nd-minute penalty from none other than Robert Lewandowski – and suffering a first Champions League defeat away from home since 2017 appears to have rocked the confidence somewhat.

Furthermore, not since the 2014-15 season have Bayern managed to progress in the Champions League after suffering a first-leg defeat, and ironically, their four exits after first-leg defeats since then have all come against sides from La Liga – a very good omen indeed for the travelling party.

However, Nagelsmanns’s side enter Tuesday’s game having won five of their last six at home in all competitions, and it has been over three years since they last failed to score at least two goals in a Champions League game at the Allianz Arena, but Villarreal have shut them out before.

One positive aspect of Bayern’s clash with Villarreal for the Bavarians was the long-awaited return of Alphonso Davies at left-back, and Lucas Hernandez will be fine to return from the thigh issue that kept him out of the Augsburg win.

Niklas Sule is still out of contention while he battles with the flu, and Nagelsmann must also work around the absences of Bouna SarrCorentin Tolisso and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, but it would have been a surprise to see any of them start.

Leon Goretzka was busted wide open in the first leg but was fine to play 57 minutes at the weekend, while Kingsley Coman will also expect a recall to the first XI after an ineffective opening 45 minutes from Serge Gnabry in the Augsburg win.

In contrast, Villarreal remain in good shape for the second leg barring long-term absentee Alberto Moreno, while striker Boulaye Dia is still struggling with his muscular problem and remains doubtful too.

As mentioned, Emery made the incredible decision to make a full 11 changes for the weekend’s clash with Athletic and should revert to the team that got the job done in the first leg, with Juan Foyth seemingly fine to return at right-back despite an injury scare towards the end of that contest.

Danjuma, Moreno, Giovani Lo CelsoDani Parejo and Raul Albiol are all among those who will return for the Allianz trip, and the only enforced change that Emery had to make at the weekend was due to Pau Torres‘s domestic suspension, with the centre-back fine to return for Europe.

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Pavard, Upamecano, Hernandez, Davies; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Muller, Coman; Lewandowski

Villarreal possible starting lineup:
Rulli; Foyth, Albiol, Torres, Estupinan; Parejo, Coquelin, Capoue; Lo Celso; Moreno, Danjuma
