TODAY'S BEST BET | APRIL 27

- Liverpool have won eight of their 10 CL matches this season
- Seven of Villarreal’s last 10 in all competitions has finished to nil
- Liverpool’s last two league wins have been to nil
We’re off to the UEFA Champions League for today’s best bet as Liverpool look to get off to the best start possible in the first leg of the semi-final when they host underdogs Villerreal at Anfield.
Liverpool are a formidable team that no one wants to play against in Europe. To make things even tougher for the yellow submarine, they don’t seem to lose at Anfield, particularly when Dutchman Virgil Van Dijk plays.
They have been one of the best teams in the competition this season, winning eight of their 10 matches, losing just one against Inter Milan.
However, most recently Jurgen Klopp’s outfit knocked out Portuguese side Benfica in an entertaining two-legged tie. Although there were plenty of goals in that clash, their opponents overnight are more reserved and defensively stable than most in Europe.
Meanwhile, Villarreal have coined the nickname giant killers after knocking out both Italian heavyweights Juventus and most recently German serial winners Bayern Munich.
If they are to get a positive result against one of the teams of the decade, it would be one of the greatest cup runs ever to a final of the Champions League. Unai Emery’s side conceded just a combined two goals against the teams mentioned above across four matches.
Winning to nil seems to be a bit of a trend for the Spanish team in recent weeks, with seven of their last 10 matches in all competitions finishing to nil.
All signs lead to one team scoring in this clash in a tight, well drilled affair. Considering Liverpool hold the home ground advantage, we’ll back them to be the team to come out on top.
