Villarreal were held to a 1-1 draw by Athletic Bilbao on Saturday evening ahead of the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Bayern. Coach Unai Emery fielded a completely different team for the La Liga match compared to his side’s 1-0 win over FCB on Wednesday in the first leg.

Pedraza scores for Villarreal

Raul Garcia had put the visitors from Bilbao ahead two minutes before the break at the Estadio de la Ceramica. Alfonso Pedraza then equalised in the 60th minute. It means the Yellow Submarine remain in seventh place, a point ahead of Bilbao. Villarreal come to Munich for the Champions League quarter-final second leg on Tuesday.

Villarreal line-up: Asenjo - Mario Gaspar (Foyth 78'), Aurier, Mandi, Pedraza - Chukwueze (Coquelin 78'), Trigueros (Danjuma 61'), Iborra, Pino (Lo Celso 61') - Alcacer (G. Moreno), Gomez
