Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp’s side sit second in the domestic league table with 79 points after 33 games. They have scored 85 goals (their highest percentage) and conceded 22. There have been 13 victories in their last 14 games in the Premier League. The team is solely trailing City in the table lead (the difference is only 1 point). The Mane-Salah-Jota link-up is on fire: they have scored an incredible 51 goals for three in the APL. The Merseyside side have won three straight victories in their last three games. Manchester United FC were thrashed 4-0 at Anfield last week and then Everton FC were thrashed 2-0.

The English ran past first Inter and then Benfica in the previous rounds of the UEFA Champions League play-offs. Salah is the team’s top scorer in the current tournament with 8 goals. The club’s sickbay is empty, which cannot but make Klopp happy with such a busy calendar.

Villarreal

Unai Emery’s side sit seventh in the table with 52 points from 33 games played. They are now 3 points behind Real Sociedad in the European Cup zone. “Villarreal have scored 53 goals and conceded 31. In the league, Emery’s side have not been too successful, with only two wins in their last six games. Last weekend, the visitors thrashed a resilient Valencia 2-0 (2.0) at home, before losing to Getafe 1-2.

But the team is always on course for the play-offs in the Champions League: Juventus were knocked out in the first eight (1-1 and 0-3), and in the quarter-finals, the Submarine beat Bayern (1-0 and 1-1). The top scorer of the team is the Dutch forward Arno Danjuma (6 goals). Back-to-back goalscorer Alvaro Moreno, centre-forward Francis Coquelin and forward Gerard Moreno are out.

Head-to-head encounters

The teams last met each other in May 2016 in the semi-finals of the Europa League, and then Liverpool went ahead on aggregate of two matches (1-0 and 3-0).

Liverpool vs Villarreal

The Reds are rightly regarded as one of the favourites in the tournament. Klopp’s charges show a crazy level of football, score a lot and make virtually no mistakes in defence. The Salah-Mane-Jota duo, who account for the lion’s share of the team’s goals, are on fire. The Spaniards cannot be expected to pull off another sensation. The club ended up in this semi-final more by choice than by choice. The home side will have a solid lead before the return leg, so we’re betting on Liverpool to win with a -1.5 handicap.
