Liverpool 2, Villarreal 0: Video highlights of Reds’ first-leg win

With a 2–0 win over Villarreal in the Champions League semifinal first leg, Liverpool took another step toward a historic quadruple. 

Villarreal should never be counted out after eliminating European giants Juventus and Bayern Munich from the competition in the previous knockout rounds with strong second-leg performances, but Liverpool was utterly dominant Tuesday at Anfield. 

The Yellow Submarine proved to be difficult to crack for Jürgen Klopp’s well-oiled machine, which was held goalless in the first half. But the floodgates opened just after the start of the second half with Sadio Mané following up a Pervis Estupiñán own goal in the 53rd minute with Liverpool’s second goal of the evening.
