Villarreal v Liverpool Predictions
Villarreal were far outmatched in their first leg matchup against Liverpool. The Spaniards could not register a single shot on target at Anfield in the match that ended 2-0 for the Reds. Liverpool are on an unbeaten run since 8 March and are looking very dominant as they head to Spain. Villarreal have never reached the Champions League final before but their victories over European giants Juventus and Bayern Munich leave some room for hope. As Liverpool are fighting for all the major titles this season, their opponents have the chance to immortalize themselves in their club’s history. Despite their impressive performance, underdogs Villarreal v Liverpool predictions favor the Reds by a large margin. Experts give Villarreal about a 20% chance for a victory and nearly 60% for an English triumph. A draw isn’t out of the question either but that would do no good to the Spanish side.
Being down 2-0 on aggregate, Villarreal will need their best form on 3 May. They used different formations against their previous three UCL opponents. In the meantime, Liverpool’s 4-3-3 continues to be unbeatable. The Spanish side haven’t used the same formation in back-to-back matches in the UCL this season so a change might be coming again. But if this season has taught us anything, it is that Villarreal are this year’s giant killers. Liverpool haven’t been as dominant in away matches as at home. On the contrary, they haven’t lost an away fixture since December. Similarly, Villarreal haven’t lost at home either since November. We could see a Spanish victory in our Villarreal v Liverpool predictions but not a large enough one for them to advance. The second leg match will be a close one but in the end, the Reds are going through.
