According to talkSPORT Pundit, Villarreal “made their way” to the Champions League final

Villarreal scared Liverpool for 45 minutes on Tuesday night, but Jason Cundy claimed that this simply proved him right on the Spanish side.

Villarreal did not shoot a single shot on goal in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final with Liverpool last week, as Unai Emery’s side tried to prevent the big favorites from gaining too great an advantage.

The fact that they had beaten Juventus and Bayern Munich to get to that stage of the tournament apparently wasn’t a big enough clue for the former Chelsea player who deserved a lot to be in the bottom four.

Instead the 52-year-old said their eventual downfall was proof that he was always right, seemingly ignoring the fact that a team the size of Villarreal had just clashed with arguably the best team on the planet.

Probably the only thing that is a shame about the Champions League is that Cundy is able to share his views with such a large audience, considering how terrible they are, even though there is no doubt that he knows exactly what he is doing.

Villarreal have a smaller budget than Burnley and, with what can only be described as a Premier League trash heap, have won the Europa League and reached the Champions League semi-final.

It was no surprise that Liverpool reacted to win the match, although things were made easier for them thanks to Geronimo Rulli.

However, it’s not that other teams haven’t fallen into similar comebacks in the competition, this year PSG lost to Real Madrid when they won 2-0 in the second half of the round of 16, thanks to Karim Benzema’s hat-trick in 17 minutes. .

Cundy isn’t exactly targeting the French side for being a “shame” despite the fact that they are much closer to Real than Villarreal is to Liverpool in terms of perceived talent and level.

Luckily most of the fans are on the side of the Spanish team, who have given us amazing nights in Europe this season and defied all odds.
