Here’s the prediction for the return leg of the Champions League semi-final. Villarreal face Liverpool at home. A week ago, the Reds won 2-0. They are unlikely to let that advantage slip away! For full information and all odds for the match, look at how to register with 1xbet.
Villarreal already jumped ahead of the competition when they reached the Champions League semi-finals. It is also a historic achievement for the team. So, when the Yellows lost their first leg to Liverpool (2-0), it came as no surprise to anyone. Furthermore, Emery’s men should be praised for not conceding more than two goals.
The Spaniards still have a chance of reaching the final of the tournament, but in reality it will be difficult to do so. Beating Liverpool in their current form is an arch-rival task. Just to take the meeting into extra time, the Submarine need a win by 2 goals difference.
In the last 9 matches in the Champions League at home, Villarreal have only 2 wins in regulation time, with 2 draws and 5 defeats.
In the previous Spanish league game, the team sensationally lost away to Alaves (2-1).
Liverpool are not just playing well this season. Klopp’s team are performing at some cosmic level. “The Reds, I believe, closed the question of reaching the Champions League final a week ago. The main thing now is not to lose by more than 1 goal. That is, in case of a world result, the team will qualify for the final. If they do manage to do so, it will be the 5th final for the Merseysiders in the 21st century.
In their last 12 Champions League games, Liverpool have only one defeat in regulation time, nine wins and two World Finals victories.
Klopp’s men are currently on a winning streak in the Champions League, having already started their 5-match winning streak. The aggregate scoreline is 15-5.
In the last round of the AFL, Liverpool were stronger away than Newcastle (0-1).

Prediction and bet on the match Villarreal – Liverpool. Outcome with cf. 1,73
In the first game Villarreal hoped to defend for 90 minutes in deep defense, and get their chance on the counterattack. Such a plan worked against Bayern, but not against the Merseysiders, who appeared to be a completely different team.
If the Divers are serious about reaching the final, they will have to attack hard in the coming midweek. But there’s a problem – they show their best football when they play second-string. And Liverpool have been excellent on the road in the current Champions League. “The Reds have never scored less than 2 goals in foreign matches.
My prediction. I’ll take the total score under 3.
