They should win this no problem.

Final Betting Analysis: Villareal at Bayern Munich

Although the victory happened on Villareal’s field, we shouldn’t downplay the the Primera Division’s victory. Villareal played an excellent match. Any time you beat a team like Bayern, one of the best soccer clubs on the planet, you played great.

But while we should give Villareal credit, we shouldn’t give them too much credit. History won’t repeat itself in this match. Bayern should have dusted Villareal by 2 to 3 goals.

If Bayern is more selective in the rematch, if they bring up their shots on goal total, they should have much more success.

As far as Villareal’s attack is concerned, expect Bayern to lock down on the LaLiga squad. Don’t expect more than 8 shots total with, like what happened in the first leg, a single shot on goal.

Manuel Neuer keeps his shirt clean, Robert Lewandowski scores at least 2, and Bayern wins by 3. Back Munich on the handicap.
