BT Sport will broadcast live UEFA Champions League football this evening as Liverpool at Villarreal.
The match will take place at Anfield as the semi-final first-leg gets underway.
While this is Liverpool’s third UEFA Champions League semi-final in five seasons, Villarreal’s only previous appearance came 16 years ago.
That ended in defeat against English opponents – although impressive away results at Juventus and Bayern Munich in this season’s competition give cause for optimism.
Liverpool are without a win at Anfield in this season’s knockout rounds and have managed only two victories in their five UEFA Champions League knockout games at home to Spanish clubs (D1 L2).
Both of Villarreal’s previous forays into the competition’s knockout rounds have been ended by English opponents and they have failed to overcome Premier League clubs in their 12 previous matches in the UEFA Champions League, group stage to final (D6 L6).
Coverage starts at 7.00pm on BT Sport 2 with live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App. Kick-off 8.00pm.
