After a humiliating defeat against Swansea City last weekend, Liverpool will be hosting the Spanish side Villarreal for the second leg of the Europa League Semi-Final.
Liverpool faced a major setback as the side conceded the last minute goal from the yellow submarine in the last leg and have a tough task ahead. Jurgen Klopp is aiming to guide the side to the finals as he is well aware of the fact that, winning the competition would give them a place in Champions League next season.
Former Liverpool and Manchester United player Michael Owen is confident and is expecting to see Liverpool in the final.
Writing in his column for Bet Victor, ex-England international Owen said: “Villarreal guaranteed their place in the Champions League qualifiers with a win at Valencia on Sunday, but both teams know that the winners of the Europa League gain direct entry to the group stages of Europe’s premier club competition.
“Liverpool, despite the changes in personnel, disappointed me on Sunday at Swansea but there is something magical about Anfield on a European night and I expect to see the Reds not only win on the night but overturn the 1-0 deficit from the first leg.”
“If the Yellow Submarines scores, Liverpool have to get at least three, but they got four against Dortmund in the last round and I expect the Kop to play its part.”
