Europa League Cups and Shakhtar struggle badly vs Spanish opposition.

Villarreal vs Liverpool . . .

Liverpool will be without plenty of key players for Thursday night’s game. Emre  Can, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson, Divock Origi and Danny Ings are all expected to not play.   Additionally,  Sakho is unlikely to play due to his positive drug test. Villarreal has been unbeatable at home in the Europa League winning all
of their games. However, they have failed to win any of their last 3 in La Liga.   Benteke may return for Liverpool.  Villarreal have an almost
fully fit squad to pick from with the exception of Leo Baptistao.  Roberto Soldado and Cedric Bakambu will be dangerous for the home team and will likely hit the back of net in front of their home fans.  Even with this in mind,  Villarreal struggle vs English opposition and Klopp  has Liverpool in fine form and full of confidence.

Liverpool 2-1
