Liverpool will welcome Villareal at Anfield on Thursday night for the first leg of the UEFA champions league semi-final.

The Reds managed to narrowly win against Inter Milan with an aggregate score of 2-1. Similarly, the Spanish side knocked out mighty Bayern scoring 2 against them and having conceded one, qualifying for the Champions League semi-finals.

Liverpool Vs Villareal: Talking Tactics

Jurgen Klopp will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and ask his players to dominate the ball and engineer enough clear-cut chances to win this Champions League clash at Anfield.

Unai Emery will probably opt for a 4-4-2 formation and could instruct his men to defend their penalty box well and try to capitalize if the Liverpool defenders are caught off-guard on the counter.

Key Men

Liverpool

The Reds will rely on the creativity of Mane, Firmino and Salah as they look to collectively produce a winning performance in the midweek.

Thiago will be tasked with creating chances for the attacking trio, whereas Alisson will be expected to make some solid stops at the back.

Villareal

Geronimo Rulli will have to make a few good saves at the back if Villareal are to keep a clean sheet in this game. Both Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld and Gerard Moreno will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload on their own up top.
