Villarreal coach Unai Emery said removing the away goal in the tournament would be to the team's advantage. "We have done well at home. It is difficult to fall behind by 2 goals, but we have some advantage in removing the away goal rule. We, the supporters, want to take full advantage of this opportunity, ”he said.

Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp said he should be ready for the game. "We will come down with the goal of performing well. Of course, they will try to play more than we gave them in the first leg. We should not think that the semi-final of the Champions League will be easy and it will not happen. We don't know when the next final will be played and we should be aware of this opportunity, "he added.
