'Knocking out Bayern and Juventus is impressive': Klopp and Hendo preview Villarreal tie

Liverpool will face Villarreal in the Champions League semi-final after beating Benfica 6-4 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.

The La Liga side knocked out 2020 champions Bayern Munich to reach the semis and Jurgen Klopp commented on the tie (via BT Sports): "First and foremost, when we qualified for the semi-finals of the Champions League, if I would not be happy then wake me up because that would be crazy!

"I obviously saw the results and the game last night, it was very impressive I have to say.

"To kick out Juventus and Bayern Munich, you deserve to be in the semi-final. Give me time to prepare for it and we'll be ready."

Jordan Henderson added: "Reaching the semi-final is massive. Villarreal have knocked out Juventus, Bayern. They're a very good side and we need to give it everything. Hopefully we can get to the final."

The Reds will be home for the first leg of the semi-final with the return leg set to be in Spain a week later. We definitely can't take Villarreal lightly, that's for sure.
