It was one-way traffic at Anfield last week as Jurgen Klopp’s men eventually broke down a very stubborn and deep Villarreal backline, winning 2-0 to give themselves a leg up in this Champions League semi-final. Liverpool now travel to the Estadio de la Ceramica looking to hold firm and book a place in the final.

Despite some very obdurate and firm defending from Unai Emery’s men, it was a self-inflicted wound that eventually breached their net as Pervis Estupinan’s hapless own goal looped over Geronimo Rulli, before Sadio Mane rubbed salt in the wounds two minutes later with a deft finish. Advantage Reds.

The Yellow Submarine now have it all to do if they are to turn around their deficit and pull off an unlikely semi-final triumph against one of, if not the most complete and ruthless units in Europe at the minute. It’s a tall order, but Emery is a knockout specialist and Villarreal boast a never-say-die attitude.

Villarreal vs Liverpool match stats

Mohamed Salah enters this semi-final having fired a collector’s item blank in the first leg, but it was not for the want of trying. In fact, only Karim Benzema (21) and Robert Lewandowski (19) have had more shots on target in the Champions League this season than Salah (16). Sadio Mane meanwhile, who did get on the scoresheet at Anfield, has scored 14 goals for Liverpool in the knockout stages of the Champions League. The Senegalese is now just one goal shy of equalling Frank Lampard’s record for most goals scored for an English team in the knockout stages of the competition (15 for Chelsea).

For Villarreal the man of the season has been Arnaut Danjuma so far. The former Bournemouth forward has been directly involved in seven goals in the Champions League this season (six goals, one assist). In fact, the last Dutchman to contribute more in a single campaign in the competition was Arjen Robben in 2013/14 (four goals, four assists), while playing for Bayern Munich. As the self-proclaimed “one of the best wingers in the world”, Danjuma will fancy his chances of closing the gap on his Dutch predecessor when Liverpool come to town.

Villarreal will take solace knowing their only triumph against Liverpool came at home six years ago in the 2015/16 Europa League semi-finals. The Yellow Submarine netted a 90th-minute winner through Adrian Lopez to give themselves an advantage heading to Merseyside, which they ultimately failed to capitalise on.
