Villarreal coach confident ahead of Bayern Munich clash

Garrido is happy to go in to the clash with the Bundesliga side as underdogs.

“We will work hard at Bayern; we are not going to make it easy for them. Villarreal are nobody’s favourites to win, but the three points would shake up the group and give us a lot of encouragement,” Garrido told Uefa.

“In a game like this you need a balance between defence and attack. A lot of people see us as an attacking team in the way we play with the ball, but I try to instil that balance in my players. I want my team to start winning by being strong in defence.

“Playing in the Champions League has a huge impact for the city; it’s the largest competition in the world, and the region and club are proud to see Villarreal playing against top-level European teams. Now, what we need to do is work and fight to get as far as possible.”
