The German spoke on Tuesday during his pre-match press conference ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Villarreal at Anfield.

Klopp said, “We face a very difficult opponent, that is true.

“They are made for this competition, to be 100 percent honest. The way they set up is really, really good.

“I think there might have been a little advantage [for them] in the last two games in that Juve or maybe Bayern underestimated them, but these kinds of things never happened to us.

“Especially after the last four games, there is no chance [of underestimating them] anymore, so this little advantage might have gone.

“But apart from that, they are still a really, really good football team who obviously want to make history as well.”

The kick-off time for the match is 8 pm.
