Villarreal is coming after two consecutive defeats in La Liga: 0-1 vs Cadiz and 0-2 vs Levante.
However, Unai Emery's side beat Juventus in the Round of 16 and qualified for the quarter-finals. Also, we must remeber that Villarreal are the UEFA Europa League holders Villarreal.
This will be the first appearance for Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals since 2019.
Bayern are unbeaten in the last eight games played across all competitions. Their last defeat was on February 12, 2-4 against Bochum.
Julian Nagelsmann, Bayern coach, thinks Villarreal will be a tough opponent: "Villarreal are the defending Europa League champions. They have a very experienced coach and team, and have a clearly-defined style of play. Beating Juventus 3-0 is no easy feat. We want to advance, but we will first need to play and win".
This will be the first direct match between Bayern and Villarreal since 2011. Bayern and Villarreal face each other in that year in the UEFA Champions League group stage. The Germans won both games, 3-1 at home and 2-0 on the road.
