Liverpool are beaten 1-0 in injury time by Villarreal in the Europa League semi-final first leg.

The first half of the match ended in low pace.  However, in second half, Cedric Bakambu’s header clipped the Reds upright.

Liverpool went closest when Roberto Firmino’s low shot hit the post.

The Reds looked set for a creditable draw in Spain until they switched off to allow substitute Adrian Lopez to tap in Denis Suarez’s low cross.

Despite the dramatic winner, the Europa League semi-final still remains delicately poised before next Thursday’s return leg at Anfield.

The winners will face either Spanish holders Sevilla or Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk, who drew 2-2 in their first leg, in the Swiss city of Basel on 18 May.
