Chukwueze’s winner knocks Bayern out, sends Villarreal into UCL semis



Super Eagles forward, Samuel Chukwueze scored a late goal to end Bayern Munich’s hopes of advancing in the Champions League.

The German side thought the game was heading to extra time when Chukwueze scored in the 88th minute to silence the home crowd, bringing the scoreline to 1-1 in the second leg clash.

Having won 1-0 in Spain, Chukwueze’s Villarreal successfully sealed a 2-1 aggregate victory in the last-eight tie, and are now into the semifinals of the competition.

But the Unai Emery side were steadfast and their performance earned them an historic victory against the six-time European champions.

They will face the winner of Liverpool versus Benfica in the last four, a contest Jurgen Klopp’s side currently lead 3-1 on aggregate.
