Liverpool will be hoping to sustain the image of England tonight, as they host Villarreal at Anfield in the second leg of the semifinal match of the Europa Cup.
Klopp’s men lost the first leg 1-0 through a last minute goal scored at the injury time, and they will be expected to overturn a 1-0 deficit if anything serious must take place.
Manchester City who was one of England’s representatives in Europe were yesterday evicted from the tournament by ten times European champions Madrid, hence only Liverpool are left dangling with a goal deficit.
Liverpool will need 2-0 outright win to move ahead, but that may be a very difficult task as they will be playing a determined Villarreal who may not relent in pursuing an away goal to enable them scale through today.
The only available source of silverware for the five times European champions is the Europa, as they lost to Manchester City in the final of the Carling Cup.
