'Will be rocking': Villarreal send 'thank you' message to Liverpool after last night at Anfield

Villarreal sent a ‘thank you’ message to Liverpool on Wednesday after the game at Anfield. The Reds won 2-0 in the Champions League.

Villarreal Tweeted out a lovely message for Liverpool fans on Wednesday evening after a wonderful reception at Anfield. It was in response to a Tweet from journalist James Pearce that showed the Reds’ crowd applauding the away support.

“Thank you Anfield for the great reception for our fans,” said Villarreal’s Tweet. “The Estadio de la Cerámica will be rocking next week.”

We have no doubt about that – the Villarreal support was fantastic on the night, with the chanting going on long after the final whistle. It came with a 2-0 defeat to their hosts, however, as Liverpool thoroughly controlled the UEFA Champions League semi-final.

The two sides will now meet at El Madrigal on Tuesday to ultimately decide who makes the final in May.

It was a really great night for Liverpool, in all truth, and the Villarreal fans contributed to that. Their team was thoroughly outplayed but they made sure this felt like a proper Champions League night.

Your Club's SURPRISE Star This Season

The next leg will certainly be interesting, though, as Villarreal try to find a way back into things. They have to beat this Liverpool side by at least two goals – something that hasn’t happened all season. But Unai Emery’s side will back themselves.

They upset both Juventus and Bayern Munich, after all. They actually won 3-0 in Turin to shock their hosts in the Round of 16 – they know how to get a big result against the odds. Liverpool must remain sharp and focused for the game because the atmosphere promises to be a problem.

We’ll still back Liverpool to progress in fairly routine fashion, though, on what should be a spectacle of the night.
