Liverpool held a 2-0 aggregate lead going into the game, but Villarreal scored within four minutes to seriously worry Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Boulaye Dia pounced on a cut-back from Etienne Capoue to fire Villarreal into the lead. Keeping the Spanish club at bay for as long as possible would have been the game plan for Liverpool, but they came unstuck early on.
The Villarreal crowd were gifted a glimmer of hope, that their side could reach a Champions League final.
