Champions League Semi-Final: Liverpool vs Villarreal Live, Top 3 key players to watch
Arnat Danjuma (Villarreal) vs. Trent Alexander Arnold (Liverpool)
Dutch winger Arnaut Danzuma, a 25-year-old Nigerian-born Dutchman, has become one of the leading players in Spanish clothing. Although the player has contributed to Villarreal’s great form in most of the game, he has also ensured the stability of Unai Emery’s team.
Danzuma has scored 16 goals and four assists for Villarreal in La Liga and the Champions League this season. His speed and dribbling qualities will surely keep Liverpool defenders at bay.
Liverpool’s assist machine – against Trent Alexander Arnold – could be a great clash between the two players. Trent, meanwhile, has proved against all criticism this season that he can certainly defend as well as attack.
He is one of the most influential right backs in the world, currently scoring 17 assists and two goals in all competitions. His eyesight and crossing ability are remarkable from set-pieces even in open play and so the Villarreal defense must avoid losing space to Alexander-Arnold.
In conclusion, if Trent fails to keep up with his pace, Danzuma could be a problem on the farthest side of the field.
Raul Albiol (Villarreal) vs. Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
The Spanish center-back has cemented his stability as an animal in defense for Unai Emery this season. The former Real Madrid star is still getting stronger at the age of 36. Through vital blocks and match winning tackles the Spanish man rocked his team.
The fact that the captain is ready to take his team to the Champions League final is a true example of leadership.
Mohammed Salah has surpassed the mere one-season magic claimed by the media and many scholars. This is the 5th year in a row that the Egyptian has scored at least 20 goals in a Liverpool jersey.
The Egyptian has scored a total of 30 goals and 12 assists this season, in just 42 games – including eight in 10 Champions League games so far. So it’s more than just a task anyone can ask for a single game, but Albiol can learn from a few. Red ‘ In that game the Egyptians failed.
Gerard Moreno (Villarreal) vs. Virgil Van Dijk (Liverpool)
Gerard Moreno – The veteran striker, often referred to as the player who came to the rescue of the Yellow Submarine, has been particularly deadly this season. Unai Emery, 30, led the team in the attacking process. Meanwhile, he suffered a hamstring injury in the middle of the week but it is not yet known how serious the danger will be.
But if he wants to play against the English Giants in the first leg of the semi-final, he could be a nuisance for the team. His stats, with 13 goals and 6 assists in just 26 games across all competitions, certainly speak for him.
So far, Van Dyke has amassed a total of 28 clean sheets in all competitions, playing in Liverpool shirts, with Konate and Matip. Not only that, Liverpool have proved to be a nuisance whenever they are in the set piece – they have scored a total of 3 goals so far this season.
It takes a lot of inner strength to face someone like Van Dyke. It wasn’t just 90 minutes, Moreno had to face the Giants for a total of 180 minutes on Liverpool’s defense, not to mention a few minutes of injury time or even extra time.
