Inside Villarreal’s wild dressing room as Unai Emery and Co celebrate stunning Bayern Munich in Champions League shock
VILLARREAL celebrated wildly after dumping Bayern Munich out of the Champions League.
The Yellow Submarine will play in their first Champions League semi-final since 2006 after beating the German giants 2-1 over two legs.
And they haven’t just brushed off the amazing achievement.
In video footage posted by the LaLiga side, their players can be seen dancing and singing in the dressing room at Allianz Arena.
Former Liverpool ace Alberto Moreno drums a beat that the rest of the stars sing a Villarreal chant to.
Ex-Tottenham midielder Etienne Capoue bounces and dances on a table, beaming from ear to ear.
Spurs loanee Giovani Lo Celso climbs atop a cupboard, gleefully bounding around to the beat.
Old Arsenal boss Unai Emery, meanwhile, can be seen smiling widely at his side’s incredible victory.
Villarreal went into last night’s second leg leading 1-0 courtesy of Arnaut Danjuma’s strike at El Madrigal.
They had to ride their luck at times, with Bayern creating a number of chances.

Julian Nagelsmann’s side levelled the tie on 52 minutes via the familiar route of a Robert Lewandowski strike.
In hunting a winner, however, Bayern were caught on the break late on.
Lo Celso’s clever through ball found Gerard Moreno, with the forward showing great composure to slip a square pass to Samuel Chukwueze.
The Nigerian subsequently hit the ball into the ground, deceiving Manuel Neuer as it kicked up and over him.
Chukwueze’s strike silenced the expectant Allianz Arena, with his team-mates bounding towards him to celebrate.
While Emery hugged his assistant in pure glee.
They made the mistake of not killing us off
Villarreal will face either Liverpool or Benfica in the semi-finals.
Jurgen Klopp’s side go into tonight’s second leg with a commanding advantage, having beaten their opponents 3-1 in Portugal last week.
After the game, Gerard Moreno said: “In the first leg we made the mistake of not finishing the tie and all the comments serve as motivation for us.
“They made the mistake today of not killing us off and we took advantage of that. What this team has done is great, we deserved to go through.
“We knew we were going to suffer in defence, but we were going to have our chances and, in the end, Chukwueze was able to make the most of it.”
