Villarreal’s fans hope to see the miracle at El Madrigal this Tuesday night when Liverpool arrives. Their favorites are down 2-0, but still, the hope and the morale among the hosts are at a high level, especially after surviving Allianz Arena and Munich. Though, the situation back then was different as Unai Emery’s unit didn’t have to attack and chase the deficit. As for the Reds, they are in one hell of a form, smashing and bashing everything that stays in front of them.

Villarreal vs Liverpool Odds
Hail Mary for the Hosts
That is it for Villarreal, whose chances of eliminating the English rival are pretty low. But as we said, the hope still lives. The Yellow Submarine lost the last two games, one in Liverpool and the other in Vitoria to Alaves, 2-1.
But that isn’t concerning for Emery, as his crew plays fantastically at home. Do you know that Villarreal didn’t lose the last 12 games at home, winning nine of them and posting only three draws? They have four wins in the past five events, with the sole draw coming against Athletic Bilbao, 1-1.
The efficiency of these games was low, with only one going above two goals, and Villarreal kept clean sheets on three occasions. The defense is, in fact, the biggest weapon of this team, but we saw it collapsing at Anfield.
Klopp Wants to Win it All
The Reds are in the position to win the Treble, which would cement Klopp’s position as one of the greatest managers of this era. Though, there are certain obstacles in that way, but it seems that the Reds are ready to take them down.
Liverpool won the previous five games and is without a loss in the last 12. Alisson didn’t concede a goal in the previous four straight, and his teammates from the defensive line have been doing a wonderful job. All of them were flawless these days.
One other thing which is very important for Liverpool is the fact that they don’t have any problems with injuries. The only guy with certain health issues is Firmino, but even he won’t be missing this event per the latest sources from inside the club.
Head to Head Games
Liverpool defeated Villarreal 2-0 at Anfield, with both goals coming in the span of two minutes early into the second half. It was a classic one-two punch that decided the game. The first goal was a misfortune for the Yellow Submarine, as Estupinan sent the ball into his own net, while Sadio Mane netted two minutes later.
Villarreal vs Liverpool Prediction and Pick
With all due respect towards Emery and his unit, the Reds are in a perfect position here, and we expect them to record another win. Villarreal has to attack and chase a victory, which will leave too much space in the backline, and that is something Salah, Mane, and the remaining part of Liverpool’s striking core adore. We’ve often seen teams in this position getting blown up by the Reds, which is why we suggest betting on their win in Spain.
Pick: Liverpool wins
