Absolutely no way Bayern have bottled that against Villarreal and absolutely no way Liverpool get an Inter/Benfica/Villarreal run to the final 😭😭

Villareal completed a shock win over Bayern Munich by seeing off a 1-1 draw in Bavaria to knock Bayern out 2-1 on aggregate. The result came as a surprise to many who expected the German side to steamroll the Yellow Submarines.
Liverpool will now try and see out the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie against Benfica at Anfield. The Reds should however be wary of Unai Emery’s men who have recently shown that they are no pushovers and will surely provide stern competition. That is, however, after they complete the task against Benfica.
