Europa League Semi Final Thursday!

I've carved out a couple of hours in the office this afternoon to follow the Europa League semi-final first leg battle between Villareal and Liverpool. If any of you have some time to drop by for a cuppa, please join me.

Oh - Saldado, who is the main danger man for the Yellow Submarine tonight is a whisker away from opening the scoring.

Nice interplay between the Liverpool midfield but it all ended with a shanked shot from distance by Lallana. Deserved better.

Liverpool respond well to that period of pressure. Both teams could have had a couple of goals already, this match is a lot of high-octane fun.

Villarreal pin Liverpool back a little, but can’t do any damage. A refreshed Dos Santos swings one straight over the area from the right; Costa can’t get a cross back in from the left. 0-0 at the half-hour mark.

Half time in Villareal - a bit humdrum really. Two half chances each side. Fair result so far and good news for Liverpool fans.

We're back on at El Madrigal.

Jordan Ibe has come on for Coutinho. Must be a knock involved there.

I'm off home at the hour mark. Still 0-0.
