Villareal – Liverpool
Welcome back to our soccer betting tips for today! Let’s head out to Spain where Villarreal will host Liverpool in a second leg from the Champions League 1/2-finals. It’s time to see what we’ve got here.
As it looks now, Liverpool are very close to reaching the Champions League final again. The Reds will travel to Spain with a solid two goals advantage after their 2-0 win in the first leg. Maybe you remember that Unai Emery’s team scored themselves an own goal at the Anfield while Sadio Mane scored one as well. Now Villarreal’s task is very difficult.
The Spanish side already made waves in the competition by eliminating Juventus and Bayern Munich. Now they have their toughest challenge – to neutralise Liverpool’s two goals advantage. It means that Emery’s team must attack, but also keep an eye on its defense. Sounds complicated? Well – it is.
Liverpool on the other hand look unstoppable at the moment. They are not only close to the Champions League final, but also winning game after game in England. In their last Premier League game they faced Newcastle United away from home and achieved a crucial 1-0 win. It was the midfielder Naby Keita who scored the only goal in the game. The African was assisted by Diogo Jota and put the ball behind the goalkeeper.
It’d be curious to see what kind of a line-up Jurgen Klopp will choose for the next game. In the first leg he put Diogo Jota on the bench as he chose to start with Luis Diaz. Maybe this time Jota could return in the starting eleven after his important assist against Newcastle on Saturday.
That’s the soccer betting tips for today for the Champions League 1/2-finals game between Villarreal and Liverpool. The Reds are very close to the final, but they have to make this step as well.
