Villarreal sit comfortably on the fourth place in the Primera standings and have clinched the place in the Champions League for the next season. The Yellow Submarine have 64 points after 36 matches with 44-31 aggregate goal difference. The Spanish side aren’t that confident of the road with 4 wins, 6 draws and 4 defeats in 14 away matches in 2016. Villarreal are unbeaten in three matches in away legs of the Europa League knockout phase (draws with Napoli, 1-1, and Bayer Leverkusen 0-0 and the win at Prague over Sparta 4-2).
Villarreal have advantage after the first leg due to late match winning goal at own stadium but Liverpool proved they are able to come from behind against any tough opponents and should be able to beat the visiting side with support of home fans.
Prediction for the match: Liverpool to win.
