Villarreal vs Liverpool: prediction for the Champions League match

Villarreal take on Liverpool in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal tie on May, 3. Who will become the first finalist of the tournament? Here's our prediction.

Villarreal

Villarreal secured a playoff ticket to the Champions League with a last-minute win in their final group match. In the last 16, the Yellow Submarine beat Juventus, and in the quarterfinals they upset Bayern Munich. The Spanish team won 1:0 at home and held Bayern to a draw in Munich. Last week, Villarreal suffered an away defeat to Liverpool (0:2).Unai Emeri's side failed to make a shot on target as the Reds dominated.

Sporting Gijon of La Liga 2 eliminated the hosts from the Copa Del Rey (1:2). In 33 games of La Liga, the Yellow Submarine have won 14 matches and drawn ten, giving them 52 points and 7th place in the standings. In their last two outings, Villarreal won against Valencia (2:0) and suffered a defeat to Deportivo Alavés (1:2).

Alberto Moreno, Francis Coquelin, Yeremi Pino and Gerard Moreno are sidelined with injuries.

Liverpool

Liverpool won all six games during the group stage of the Champions League and defeated Inter Milan in the first round of the playoffs by the score of 2:1 on aggregate. Then, the Reds beat Benfica in the quarterfinals - following a 3:1 win in Spain, they played out a high-scoring draw against the Eagles in England. During the first leg of the semifinal match, Liverpool had a clear advantage over Villarreal.

Jurgen Klopp's team has already won the League Cup and will attempt the quadruple. The club is one of the favourites to win the Champions League and has already reached the FA Cup final. Liverpool can also snatch the Premier League title from Manchester City. The Reds are currently in 2nd place in the Premier League standings, just one point behind the defending champions. After a victory over Everton (2:0), they beat Newcastle (1:0).

Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi will miss this game.

Prediction

Liverpool completely outplayed Villarreal in the first game. The Reds are a better team on paper and should have no problems in the second leg. The Reds will probably get control of the ball, just as they did last week, and book their ticket to the final.

Despite the fact that the Reds can afford to lose today, we doubt that they will concede to Villarreal. However, considering how tight the Premier League title race is, we expect Liverpool to save their energy for the weekend battle, and just pull out a narrow win here.

Second wager — Liverpool to win by 1 goal
