Following a dominant 2:0 win in last week´s first leg at Anfield,  Liverpool will be confident of booking their place in the Champions League final when they take on Villarreal at the Estadio de la Cerámica on Tuesday.

While The Yellow Submarine had fought bravely for the first period of last week´s first leg, Liverpool´s superior quality took over in the second half and a dominant 2:0 win looks likely to have secured Jurgen Klopp´s side return to a third Champions League final in just five years.

Villarreal vs Liverpool Betting Tips

Of course, Villarreal have made a habit of upsetting the odds, having already dispatched both Juventus and Bayern Munich in the previous rounds but it would take something truly remarkable for Unai Emery´s side to turn this one around with the visiting Anfield side enjoying a brilliant run of form in recent months.

Indeed, Liverpool arrives on Spain´s Eastern coast having won 10 of their last 12 outings while they have also won 10 of their last 11 away matches and it´s hard to see another outcome here with Klopp´s side also winning 8 of their last 10 CL away matches including each of the last 5.

With the hosts likely to operate with a more offensive approach, Liverpool should enjoy more space to exploit and while we should not under-estimate Villarreal, an away win looks to offer good value at 1.7 odds.

Goal chasers will be encouraged by Liverpool´s away record in this competition which has seen the Reds keep just 1 clean sheet in their last 6 CL matches on the road and with the support of an always vociferous home crowd, Villarreal can score but Liverpool´s greater quality and form suggests it should be little more than a mere consolation.
