Villarreal play very good this season and they are one of the main favorites to win this competition. In Primera they are standing behind the leading trio Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid and they will probably finish the season at the 4th position and play in the qualifications for the Champions League next season. Home side are playing very good upfront their supporters. Villarreal lost only two matches at home in La Liga this season, while in Europa League they have won all matches this season, including victories against Napoli 1-0, Bayer Leverkusen 2-0 and Sparta Prague 2-1. Except those good result in Europe, Villarreal have beat in Spanish league Atletico Madrid 1-0, Real Madrid 1-0, while the match against FC Barcelona was finished without winner 2-2. They have very strong and organized team and they hope that can make good result against Liverpool.

Liverpool are not impressive this season and they still fight to reach the qualifications in the Europa League through Premier League. They are full of confidence after they eliminated Borussia Dortmund in the amazing match, in the Quarter-finals of this competition. Team from England would like to play in the Champions League next season and the only way they can do it is to win Europa League. The first obstacle on that way is very organized team from Spain and they will have to their best in order to reach the final. Their recent form is very solid. Liverpool are unebaten in the last 7 matches in all competitions, but on the other side their defence is not at the high level. They conceded at least one goal in 8 of their last 9 matches in all competition. Another bad thing for visitors is that their in-form striker Origi is injured. However, their main goal will be to make positive result in the first leg and try to qualify in the final upfront their supporters.
