Team news and rosters

PositionLiverpool roster
Goalkeepers Alisson, Adrian, Kelleher, Marcelo
Defenders Van Dijk, Konate, Gomez, Tsimikas, Robertson, Matip, Beck, Alexander-Arnold, Quansah

The dream of a madcap quadruple remains thrillingly alive for Jurgen Klopp's men, but they cannot afford a single slip now - and still have to hope Manchester City tumble in the Premier League.

Liverpool are twice finalists under the German, in 2018 and 2019 - and with a frontline stacked with superstars, they know their way to a goal or two. They arrive as heavy favourites.

Predicted Liverpool starting XI: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Mane, Diaz.

PositionVillarreal roster
Goalkeepers Asenjo, Rulli, Iker
Defenders Mario, Albiol, Torres, Foyth, Estupinan, A. Moreno, Mandi, Aurier, De la Fuente, Cabrera
Midfielders Parejo, Capoue, Iborra, Chukwueze, Trigueros, Lo Celso, Coquelin, Pena, Gomez, Pedraza, Iosifov, Garcia, Ruiz
Forwards G. Moreno, Alccer, Danjuma, Dia, Pino, Jackson, Arana

It's been a beautiful run through Europe for the Yellow Submarine, the little side that could against heavyweights like Juventus and Bayern Munich - and now, they'll plot their biggest scalp yet.

Unai Emery led Sevilla to Europa League victory over the Reds in 2016, coincidentally after Liverpool had knocked Villarreal out in the semi-finals. There's plenty of motivation for them to go all the way.

Predicted Villarreal starting XI: Rulli; Foyth, Albiol, Torres, Estupinan; Parejo, Coquelin, Capoue; Lo Celso; Chukwueze, Danjuma.
