by the players. The LFC players were all over Villareal right from the start. They rotated their position brilliantly which resulted in LFC taking full control of the midfield. Sadio Mane and an own goal from a Villareal player handed the English club a 2-0 victory.
However, Liverpool is not in the mood to relax. They very well know how dangerous complacency can be. Let us learn more about the story in detail below.
Liverpool Not Ready To Celebrate
Liverpool has taken a huge step into the finals of the UEFA Champions League. However, they are not ready to celebrate yet.
The team is well aware of the danger that Villareal can pose in the second leg.

Everyone is focused to play out the other half of the game perfectly and play in the finals against either Real Madrid or Manchester City.
