Champions League: How Liverpool erased Villarreal's blueprint for another upset -

They did that perfectly for 50 minutes or so until Pervis Estupinan deflected Jordan Henderson's effort over Geronimo Rulli in a 2-0 first-leg defeat at Liverpool on Wednesday.

Once the ball had hit the back of the Anfield net for the first time in Liverpool's favor on Wednesday, it was simply a question of how long it would be until Jurgen Klopp's men suffocated the Spaniards enough to score again.

The answer came just two minutes later when Unai Emery's gameplan was left in tatters after Mo Salah picked the visiting defense apart to tee up Sadio Mane, who finished on the stretch to put one big red foot in the Paris final.
