Fresh from a victory against Everton in the Merseyside derby and perhaps the last one for a period of time, Liverpool will have undoubtedly turned their attention to the UEFA Champions League.
The Reds will be playing at Anfield again on Wednesday night as they host one of the surprise packages in this year’s elite competition; Villarreal.
The Spaniards have been an incredible team to watch this season in the tournament, as they have managed to knock out the likes of Juventus and FC Bayern in order to reach this stage of the UCL.
However, it would seem that Jurgen Klopp’s side are the favourites to end the Yellow Submarine’s spectacular journey in Europe; one which had begun as the UEFA Europa League champions.
Indeed, the current odds available at the Betway Sportsbook would suggest the Premier League side has the advantage over Unai Emery’s side in the upcoming encounter at Anfield.
As of writing, the Betway Sportsbook has Liverpool priced at 30/100 favourites to beat Villarreal in the first leg of this UEFA Champions League and put one foot into the Final.
Naturally, punters who are interested in this match and betting on it would be best inclined to place a wager using the operator, as they continue to host a number of special bonuses and promotions on their site, including boosts that can be utilised!
Unfortunately for the Spaniards, though, they may not be provided with any special dispensation on Wednesday night, especially with the way that Klopp’s team continues to perform.
The Reds are currently fighting on all fronts at the moment and the UEFA Champions League is likely going to be just as high on their list of priorities this season as the Premier League.
Of course, the English side managed to win the European title back in 2019 after defeating Tottenham Hotspur in the Final, but they will want to make it two English sides in a row to win following last season’s success by Chelsea; a team that had been knocked out by one of the other semi-finalists in this year’s competition: Real Madrid.
It would be very difficult to see Villarreal come to Anfield and get a positive result, however as we all know, you should never count out a team competing in Europe under Unai Emery.
As mentioned, they have already beaten Juventus and FC Bayern Munich in previous rounds, whilst the manager has a history in Europe that is extraordinary.
