Villarreal just gave Liverpool a quadruple advantage as Jürgen Klopp passed major test
The juxtaposition between Jürgen Klopp’s expression at the end of the first half and at the end of the second will have summed up the roller coaster of emotions Liverpool experienced in their second leg tie at the Estadio de la Cerámica.Information Guide Nigeria
Even before a ball had been kicked, the pouring deluge of rain had cast a bleak outlook on a Spanish town that would usually be bathing in sunshine. But rather than tainting the mood of the locals, it only spurred on even more raucous support in the stands. In the first half, the ground became a cauldron seething and bubbling with emotion.

Never had Liverpool produced such a baffling game of incompetence. The Liverpool side who came out in the first half felt ominously alien to the side supporters who have become accustomed to seeing this season. There was something distinctly un-Liverpool like in the way Jürgen Klopp’s side gave away the ball cheaply and lacked the ruthlessness to apply pressure against the opposition.

Klopp’s decision to bring on Luis Díaz completely transformed the game. It was the one trick left in his pocket, and Klopp’s Hail Mary got the job done.
To bounce back from that takes a great amount of mettle and physical endurance and overcoming this challenge will give Liverpool the confidence to spur them further in their quest for a quadruple.
There’s still plenty of important games left to play and the small matter of a potential Premier League title on the line, but the odds will not be weighed against their favour as much as this game — no stadium will be as hungry as this stadium to ruin their party. Liverpool will face their Champions League opponents on equal footing come the end of May.
The Reds will leave Villareal with the knowledge that they are already in the history books. No English team has ever made it to the final of both domestic tournaments (League Cup and FA Cup) and the Champions League.JAMB Result
