The first leg of the
quarterfinal is a crucial match.Bayern Munich
is one of the biggest clubs in the world. In their history, the German giants have won the European Cup six times: in 1974, 1975, 1976, 2001, 2013, and 2020.Villarreal
has only ever won one trophy, the Europa League in 2021.
But on the night, it won't matter; whomever has the best team during the 180 minutes will be the winner. Bayern striker
will face Villarreal centre-back
in one of the most intriguing matchups on the pitch.
"He's a very complete attacker who I faced when we played Poland in the European Championship," Pau told
. "He's not like [Karim] Benzema in the way he plays." He's a goal threat to be sure. He appears to be uninvolved, however he is present in every game activity.
"We're coming off of a match againstDusan Vlahovic
, who hit unbelievable shots out of nowhere. We'll all have to guard him, starting at the top and working together as a block." But it's up to us center-backs to keep an eye on Lewandowski, and those are the difficulties you're looking for."
