Liverpool will aim for their 10th appearance in the European Cup final when they host Villarreal for the first leg of the Semi-Finals on Wednesday, 27th of April.

The Reds have an unbeaten record at the Anfield Stadium in the Semi-Finals of the Champions League. They won 9 of their previous 11 matches and conceded just 4 goals. The team manager Jurgen Klopp recently said that winning trophies is important for his side to get the much-deserved respect. He said:

“It will be an outstanding season if we get to the Champions League final but, no, we will not get the same respect for it as if we had won it – but that is the nature of the thing.”

Villarreal couldn’t ask for a better season as they qualified for the UEFA Champions League after 16 years. It will be their first appearance in the Finals if they manage to defeat Liverpool. They are undoubtedly the underdogs against the Reds but Emery’s side has proved that they have the capability to beat strong teams by securing wins against  Bayern and Juventus. Villarreal’s Pau Torres sent a strong message to Liverpool ahead of the big game. Torres said:

“Yes, we have nothing to lose – quite the contrary. We will be less of a surprise because we have just eliminated Juve and Bayern, so Liverpool will be a little more humble than Bayern was and they will prepare thoroughly knowing what we have achieved in the other qualifiers.”
