There’s a new trio in Jurgen Klopp’s attack: Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz once again stand together in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Villarreal (at The Indian Paper 1, 9 PM). They have already made all three starts in recent weeks against Manchester United or against Benfica in the first leg of the quarter-finals.

It is the triptych that is needed to lead Liverpool’s offensive zone, touched on foot and unavailable for a third game in a row, in the absence of Roberto Firmino. Diogo Jota has been left on the bench after starting the Reds’ last Champions League match.

Coquelin and Capou Holder for Villarreal
In midfield, Klopp relegated Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson, who had played against the Red Devils in the league the week before. At the back, Virgil van Jick can count on French Ibrahima Konate, preferring Joel Matip. In addition to full-backs Alexander-Arnold and Robertson.
For Villarreal, two tricolor starts: Francis Coquelin and tienne Capou, joined by Dani Parejo in midfield. In the absence of Gerard Moreno, the victim of a physical disturbance, it is Arnaut Denjuma who is at the forefront of the attack.
