Liverpool lost in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League against Villarreal 1-0, so they try to make good result at Anfield, upfront their supporters, and reach the final. Home team played very good in the first match, they’ve created few good chances, but they were very unlucky and conceded goal in an injury time. Liverpool lost against Swansea 3-1 in the last Premier League match and they don’t have big chances to qualify in Europa League next season, so now they will be fully focused to qualify in the final. If they win this competition they would qualify in the UEFA Champions League directly next season. Liverpool believe that they can repeat their success from the previous round when they eliminated Dortmund after they were losing 1-3 and at the end won 4-3. “If we play our best then we can go to the final. These players gave me a lot of positive signs about their qualities. We are ready.” – said their manager Jürgen Klopp.

Villarreal can be satisfied after they beat Liverpool in the first match and they hope that one goal will be enough to qualify in the final. Visitors are unebaten in the last 12 Europan matches this season and they need just one more step to reach the final. Before the match against Liverpool, Villarreal eliminated Napoli, Bayer Leverkusen and Sparta Prague. They have already finish the season in Primera at the 4th position and secured the qualifications for the UEFA Champions League next season, but they want to win this trophy and will do their best in order to stay unbeaten at Anfield. They have very strong squad and they showed that this season in Europe. In La Liga they beat Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, while against FC Barcelona they took one point. Visitors know that home side will have big support, but they have positive result from the first leg and I believe that they will waiting Liverpool to attack and try to score from the counter-attacks.

Liverpool vs Villarreal Prediction

Liverpool have an advantage of home field, but if they want to reach the final they have to score. Villarreal have very good attack and their main goal will be to hit the net.
