Klopp had said during the pre-match press conference that “At this moment, a Champions League semi-final is the most important game you can play. Whatever happened in the last few weeks or will happen in the next few weeks is not important, for this moment is clear.
“You never know if you will reach a semi-final again or if we will ever have the chance again to go to the final, you never know. We have an exceptional team here and nothing is for granted. You need luck in moments and all these sorts of things, so you better treat it carefully and be ready, and we will be ready.
“We really want it, we want to be where we are, and we want to go to the final. If Villarreal is better than us and beat us with a result that qualifies them for the final then congratulations, that’s it. But between now and then there are 95, or however many minutes to play, and I’m looking forward to it.”
