VILLARREAL are on the verge of one of the biggest upsets in recent Champions League history.

Arnaut Danjuma’s early strike gave the Yellow Submarine a 1-0 victory in Spain, but they will believe they should have won by more goals after dominating the match.

And Unai Emery’s failure to secure victory by a bigger margin could well prove costly. Just ask Red Bull Salzburg.

The Austrian side led for almost the entire first leg before being pegged back to a 1-1 draw.

However, the return leg was not quite such a close contest with Bayern romping to a 7-1 win in Munich.

The Germans will also know that their failure to score away from home may not prove as costly as it would have done in previous years as the away goals rule has been scrapped.
