Liverpool will visit Villarreal's headquarters at the Estadio de la CerĂ¡mica for the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League semifinal second leg match, Wednesday (04/05/2022) at 12:30 midnight Indian time.

Liverpool has actually stepped one foot into the Champions League final this season. The reason is, that the Reds have won 2-0 on aggregate over Villarreal at this time after the victory in the first leg which took place at Anfield through Pervis Estupinan's own goal in the 53rd minute and Sadio Mane's goal in the 55th minute.

With an aggregate advantage of 2 goals, Liverpool will certainly be more comfortable undergoing this second leg match. Jurgen Klopp's troops only need to draw or at least not lose by a 2 goal difference in this second leg lag.

Liverpool itself is quite confident looking at this match. Last weekend, Liverpool just won over Newcastle United with a score of 1-0 in the Premier League through Naby Keita's goal. It was Liverpool's 10th win in their last 12 matches in a row (W10 D2 L0).

On the host side, Villarreal will clearly be under pressure in this match. The reason is, that the team nicknamed  The Yellow Submarine must win by a margin of 3 goals if they want to step foot into the final.

That is clearly a very difficult thing considering their opponent is Liverpool who is on a good trend at the moment. In addition, Villarreal itself is also in poor form at the moment.

Villarreal last weekend just lost to Deportivo Alaves in the Spanish La Liga with a score of 1-2. It was Villarreal's consecutive defeat in the last 2 matches after previously losing to Liverpool in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal.
