Liverpool FC will face Villarreal in 1st Leg, semifinal UEFA Champions League 2021-2022 on Wednesday, 27.04.2022. Liverpool FC vs Villarreal live streaming is broadcast on BT Sport, local time (BST).
As part of the semifinal match for the Champions League, Villarreal travels to the headquarters of Liverpool. It is not the intention of Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp to underestimate Villarreal, because he does not wish for the Reds to suffer the same fate as Juventus and Bayern Munich.
The first leg of Liverpool vs Villarreal will take place at Anfield Stadium on Wednesday (27/4/2022) at local time.
It’s pretty obvious that Liverpool, who are very strong at home, should be seeded. Moreover, the 2019-2020 Premier League champion is one of the most successful Champions League teams with six titles.
But it should not be forgotten that Unai Emery’s Villarreal this season has turned into a giant killer. The Yellow Submarine has managed to knock out two of Europe’s biggest clubs – Juventus in the last 16 with a 4-1 aggregate and Bayern Munich in the quarters with a 2-1 aggregate.
Up to now, Villarreal has made two semifinals in the Champions League, in 2005-2006 and this season. The La Liga club will play their first Champions League final if they get rid of Liverpool.
Villarreal boss Unai Emery has also beaten Klopp’s team in Europe before, leading Sevilla to victory in the Europa League final in 2016. This season, Villarreal’s main weapon has been a neat and disciplined game organization.
Klopp mentioned that the Villarreal manager is obsessed with details. There are different ways to press and react to different teams.
