Villarreal had the drama at the Allianz Arena late as they stunned Bayern Munich to reach their first Champions League semifinal in 16 years.

Robert Lewandowski equalized early in the second half with his 13th Champions League campaign goal.

Bayern, who were knocked out after losing the opening leg in each of their last five Champions League knockout ties, quickly took possession to reverse the deficit.

But the Bundesliga leaders fought to break up a well-organized Villarreal team and the only attempt to target the Bavarian giants in the first half came when Jamal Musiala headed straight from Leon Goretzkar’s cross to Geronimo Ruli.

Bayern kept their pressure after the break and they were rewarded if Lewandowski scored in the 52nd minute; Dani Parejo digs home from the post after admitting to occupying a dangerous area.

Bayern were left to regret those misses in the final, when Europa League holders started a devastating counter-attack with Giovanni Lo Celso for Gerard Moreno, who was forced to move clinically away on behalf of the Chuckweis.
