Liverpool visit La Ceramica Stadium to face Villareal for the return leg on Wednesday to book a place in the finals of the UEFA Champions League.

The Reds ended up taking the lead over Villareal as they won 2-0 in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal clash but Unai Emery’s men have upset the odds before.

Jurgen Klopp’s side head into the contest on the back of a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United in the Premier League, whereas Villareal come into the match after a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Alaves.

Liverpool Vs Villareal: Talking Tactics

Jurgen Klopp will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to get a stronghold in the game and create enough decent chances to advance to the final.

Unai Emery will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and might instruct his men to keep a solid defensive shape so that they don’t concede any more goals and try to hurt the Reds on the counter.

Liverpool Predicted XI

Alisson; Trent, Van Dijk, Konate, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Diaz, Mane

Villareal Predicted XI

Rulli; Foyth, Albiol, Torres, Estupinan; Capoue, Coquelin, Parejo; Lo Celso; Chukwueze, Dia

Key Men


The defensive performance of Albiol and Torres could determine the fate of this game. Lo Celso and Parejo will have to find a way to create some decent chances in the final third to set up the men in front of the goal. Dia will have to carry the burden of putting the ball into the net.


Van Dijk and Matip need to have a good game on the defensive end of the field if Liverpool are to keep a clean sheet. Salah and Mane will have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden up top.
