Expert Forecast

Matthew Howarth, Liverpool correspondent
Despite the visitors’ impressive victories over Juventus and Bayern, the vast majority of Liverpool fans expect their team to reach the Champions League final for the third time in five seasons at the expense of Villarreal. The Yellow Submarine is sure to put up a stiff resistance at Anfield, but the Reds put in a solid home run and anything other than another Jurgen Klopp win on Wednesday would be a huge surprise.

Graham Hunter, reporter for Villarreal
It was the last time he visited Villarreal Anfield in the semi-finals, but the Yellow Submarine would not want to repeat the 2015/16 European League match, when he was defeated 3-0. Of course, it was Unai Emery who faced Liverpool in the final as Sevilla coach – and the Basques will surely share the 3-1 win he imposed on Jurgen Klopp’s men in Basel. This time around, he must find a way to cope without Gerard Moreno, whose hamstring injury could hardly have been timed worse, with a repeat of the exceptional positional discipline shown in Turin and Munich in the previous rounds.

What do the coaches say?

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool coach: “We did a proper analysis, and I had a lot of respect for [Unai] Emery and Villarreal before, but I watched them correctly and it amazed me! Embarrassed. He is a manager who is obsessed with details. Different ways of pressing and responding to different results. A world class coach doing a great job.”

Unai Emery, Villarreal coach bus: “Any team in the Champions League semi-finals is there because it deserves to be. Liverpool knows that we have a great European presence, that we’ve been able to eliminate two great teams.” [in Juventus and Bayern]. They know it won’t be easy. They will feel favored, of course, but they will respect us. This is the best Liverpool team I’ve seen. I see that as an added motivation: to try to beat Liverpool is the best ever.”

Where is the 2022 Champions League final date?
