Why is Liverpool a safe bet to win?

Liverpool is playing like the best soccer club on the planet. In their last 5, the Reds have drawn with Benfica in a match they didn’t have to win, drew with Man City in a game at Etihad Stadium, and beat the Citizens 3-2 in an FA Cup Semifinal.

Also, in their last match, Liverpool dusted Manchester United 4-0. No team left in the Champions League, not Manchester City, not Villareal, and not Real Madrid, is in as good of form as Liverpool.

Why is Villarreal a safe bet to win?

The underdog has hit their stride. Villareal has not only knocked Bayern from the Champions League, but they have also won 3 straight versus LaLiga opponents. A couple of matches ago, Villareal beat Getafe 2-1. Then in their last, Villareal beat Valencia 2-0. The LaLiga squad is playing their best soccer of the season.

Going back to the win over Bayern, if Villareal can beat Munich, why is it so difficult to believe they can’t beat Liverpool? Also, coach Unai Emery is a master in European tournaments. He coached and managed Villareal to a Europa League victory last season.

Liverpool vs. Villarreal Betting Prediction

No doubt, Villareal is a good soccer club. The LaLiga team is also in excellent form. But on Wednesday, Villareal goes up against the best team in the world. It’s impossible to mark both Mane and Salah. Players must flood to both when they have the ball, which means Villareal will have to pick their poison.

One or both will breakdown Villareal’s defense and manage a goal or set up a goal for one of their teammates. When Villareal attacks, they must find a way to get past a backline that includes the excellent Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Then, if Villareal somehow gets past Alexander-Arnold and the backers, Allisson waits in goal. Make no mistake, Villareal is worthy of their Champions League Semifinal spot. But on Wednesday, they face a daunting, close to impossible, task. Pool wins by 2.
