On Tuesday, Liverpool will visit Spain to play the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final against Villarreal. They will aim to continue their winning spree and secure a place in this year’s Champions League final. The Reds are already in a dominant position thanks to a 2-0 lead over Anfield, thanks to an own goal from Pervis Estupinan and a goal from Senegal striker Sadio Mane.
Nevertheless, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not take the lead for granted and emphasizes that it is a difficult deficit to defend given the form of the opposition. In the first leg of the semi-final, Liverpool had more than 70 per cent of possession and did an excellent job of preventing the Villarreal players from entering their penalty area.
It is worrying for Villarreal that two players – Jeremy Pino and Alberto Moreno – will be missing due to injuries. Another concern for Villarreal is their striker Gerard Moreno’s hamstring injury, which may require him to start on the bench. Roberto Firmino, on the other hand, is Liverpool’s only concern as his foot injury proves to be more difficult than expected.
Date, kick-off time and location
The UEFA semi-final between Villarreal and Liverpool is scheduled for Wednesday, May 4 at 12:30 p.m.
The match will be played at Villarreal’s home ground, Estadio de la Ceramica, better known as El Madrigal in Villarreal, Spain.
